A high-performance car manufacturer is employing RFID to track the movements of its custom-made vehicles as they pass through the finishing process, to ensure they are produced according to the demands of the automaker’s customers. The automaker installed the RTLS at its production facility in the United Kingdom in early 2009. The system informs the company of the whereabouts of cars during the “off-tracks” (finishing) process, how long each process takes to complete, and where bottlenecks occur. Hear how the system’s server provides a map of the facility, with an icon indicating each car’s specific location, allowing employees to see where each vehicle is located.
