RFID Robots and the New Platforms for Sensor Fusion

Warehouses and retail stores often rely on either static RFID readers to track items moving through an area, or human employees to use mobile 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 devices come in various shapes and forms, ranging from remotely guided drone-type systems to sophisticated self-guided data-capture solutions. Learn how RFID and a suite of new sensor technologies 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.

The Business Case for RFID in Retail and Apparel

RFID Journal has conducted extensive research to understand the business case for RFID in apparel retail, and to create metrics that companies in that sector can use to determine the likely return on investment they could achieve by employing the technology to manage store inventory. This session will explain the data used and walk attendees through the financial model. Those in attendance will receive a copy of the report on which the presentation will be based, as well as an interactive spreadsheet they can utilize to explore the benefits they can expect to receive, based on their own store size, number of units, margin, labor costs and other inputs.
