Fresh USA Seeks to RFID-Enable Cloakrooms
The company's system is designed to streamline the process of storing and retrieving checked coats and bags at concert halls and other public buildings.
Once the clothes have been laundered, dried and folded, they are returned to the conveyor, where the UHF RFID reader again interrogates the tag IDs. The reader instructs the controller to move the compartment associated with those garments to the location where the uniforms are being reloaded. A staff member then places the garments within that compartment.
When the employee returns for her uniform, she again places her ID badge against the HF reader. The controller sends the compartment associated with that individual to the door, where she can retrieve her clean uniform.
The Izmailovo Concert Hall is also using the technology, which it installed early last year, to manage its attendees' coats. The technology replaces its previous manual method for storing and accessing costumes. "Earlier, we had the usual large wardrobe [storage room] with simple hanging clothes and coat hooks," says Igor Mikhailovich, the concert hall's deputy director. "In earlier times, we had a large queue in the wardrobe before the concert and at the end."
According to Tomin, the system triples the efficiency of a typical cloakroom or uniform storage area that might have otherwise utilized a manual tracking method. The company opened its U.S.-based office this year, he adds, and is currently in discussions with several potential users. The system is customizable for each end user, Tomin notes, and is RFID hardware-agnostic.
