Retailers often rely on either static RFID readers to track items moving through an area, or human employees to use moving readers to track static items. Researchers at Auburn University’s RFID Lab are employing moving, automated readers to capture static or moving tagged items, with little or no human effort required. These can come in various shapes and forms, from remotely guided drone-type systems to sophisticated self-guided data-capture systems. Learn how the technology can be used to provide consistent and accurate data tracking, as well as more precise item location, making these attractive solutions for some of the more difficult future item-tracking applications.
