RFID Facilitates Training for Crews

A stock car racing organization is using real-time location system (RTLS) technology to better train its crews, by tracking the movements of each individual and the equipment used, in simulated pit stops for racing stock cars. The system helps the company to better identify the movements of individuals and equipment, and to reduce the amount of time crew members previously spent painstakingly watching—and often rewatching—videos, examining each action during training. By collecting data regarding the movements of people and equipment, the firm can better identify which video will be useful to watch. If the system finds that certain individuals accomplished their work especially well, for example, examining footage of that pit stop could help better train them and others—just as identifying a specific error can lead athletes and trainers to the point in the video at which the error can be viewed and studied.
