A global retailer is trialing an indoor mapping and analytics robotic system using radio frequency identification at five of its stores, tracking its house brand garments to determine whether the technology can improve efficiency and inventory visibility. The deployment involves robotic machines that roam through a store’s clothing department, so that onboard RFID readers can perform inventory counts by reading each garment’s passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) EPC Gen 2 RFID tag. Learn how the robotic RFID reading solution identifies which goods are at what location throughout sales floors and store rooms, and how it is being used to increase visibility.
