RFID Journal, Microelectronics Technology Inc. (MTI) and Enso Detego today introduced FiND-iT, a PC and Android smartphone or tablet solution that enables users to associate passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification tags with items, as well as create inventory lists and find those objects using an Android smartphone or tablet.

"This application is designed to meet the needs of small businesses with a small number of items that they want to track," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "Larger companies can also purchase it as a starter kit. If they find that the application meets their needs, they can purchase additional readers and upgrade to Enso Detego's Surveyor EXPRESS enterprise application."

With the FiND-iT application, small businesses can track inventory using an Android smartphone or tablet or a PC.

The FiND-iT kit includes one MTI RFID ME USB dongle reader, one MTI MINI ME RFID reader for Android hosts, a USB 18-inch extension cable, a USB On-the-Go (OTG) adapter cable and 50 pre-encoded and serialized EPC Gen 2 RFID labels. Users can download the Android software for a tablet or smartphone via Google Play, and the PC application at the FiND-iT section of Enso Detego's Web site.

The application allows a user to apply a UHF RFID label to a non-metallic object, such as an etching in an art gallery or health-care files in a doctor's office. When the tag is presented to the PC running the FiND-iT software and equipped with MTI's USB dongle reader, the user can enter information about that object, including its name and location, along with other attributes created by that individual.
