Daimler Sees Potential Benefits of Using RFID to Track Quality-Control

Having completed several successful test deployments, the carmaker is now in the process of installing RTLS hardware and passive EPC tags across one of its plant's quality-assurance areas.

All told, Werthmann reported, the proof-of-concept results were positive, prompting Daimler to install Mojix eNodes and antennas throughout a larger section of its quality-assurance area, and repeating the tags tests—using the three selected inlays—to ensure that the technology would function as well as it did during the small, initial test.

According to Werthmann, these tests were also successful, offering similar results. Daimler is now in the process of installing the Mojix system across its entire quality-assurance area.

The next step, Werthmann reported, will be to test various middleware products. These tests will be focused on tag-data filtering, data quality and integration into Daimler's information systems.

In addition, Daimler is performing electromagnetic interference testing, in order to determine whether an RFID tag can be embedded into a vehicle's rearview mirror during manufacturing, thereby eliminating the need for a subsequent step to attach the tag to the mirror.
