  • Smarter Sensors: How Deep Learning Is Transforming Building Automation
    Published April 2016
    Millions of office buildings worldwide are equipped with sensor-based systems designed to conserve energy, performing such tasks as automatically turning lights on and off when someone enters or leaves a room. But a truly smart building will know how an office space is being used at every moment. PointGrab's Jonathan Laserson explains how the next generation of sensors will need to be smarter and able to source and analyze richer levels of data, enabling the execution of more sophisticated tasks that go beyond energy consumption management.

  • ARG-US RFID for Monitoring and Tracking Nuclear Materials: The Operating Experience
    Published January 2014
    Under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy's Packaging Certification Program, Argonne National Laboratory has developed a monitoring and tracking system for nuclear materials based on radio frequency identification technology. The system, called ARG-US, has been in field-testing and deployments at selected DOE sites since 2010. This paper, written by Brian Craig, John Lee, Hanchung Tsai, Yung Liu and Jim Shuler, describes the operating experience of ARG-US at three sites—the Savannah River Site, the Nevada National Security Site and Oak Ridge National Laboratory—in both storage and off-site transportation applications.

  • Comprehensive Nuclear Material Surveillance With a Radiation Detector-Equipped ARG-US RFID System
    Published January 2014
    The tracking of sensitive nuclear materials can be achieved with RFID technology, significantly improving operational efficiency at nuclear and radiological facilities. This document, from Argonne National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy, explains how the ARG-US system—designed for use in managing sensitive nuclear and radioactive materials—utilizes sensor tags to continuously monitor the health of nuclear materials' packaging, triggering alarms when necessary to authorized users via a secured local network or the Internet. In conjunction with in-vehicle cellular and satellite communication packages and GPS receivers, the ARG-US platform can also monitor and track assets in transit. (12 pages)

  • Monitoring Critical Facilities Via Advanced RF Devices
    Published January 2014
    The ability to monitor critical environmental parameters at nuclear plants, particularly during and after a disruptive accident, is vital for the safety of plant personnel, rescue and recovery crews, and surrounding communities. Argonne National Laboratory's Hanchung Tsai and Yung Y. Liu, and the U.S. Department of Energy's James Shuler, discuss how an RFID-based system known as ARG-US may be modified and adapted for this purpose, and how the solution has been used to monitor and track sensitive nuclear materials packages at DOE sites.
