Inventory management solutions today fails to include information on locations of asset items. This bottleneck results in prolonged time spent on item search in a store and warehouse. RFLocus provides a passive-RFID locating solution to improve efficiency of inventory management operations.
A telematic patented platform to locate and describes positions of asset items
RFID scanning by a handheld reader registers the location of an item on a shelf with RFID tag. The location of selected item is highlighted on the digital map. When a shelf is selected, the map lists all the registered items.
This platform can be built into an existing RFID store inventory system.
Relative to ceiling-mount-reader solutions, Locus Mapping has high accuracy on locating asset items and setup cost.
Locus Mapping can pinpoint a specific shelf of scanned items. And, additional investment into new hardware is not required as RFID scanning is by existing handheld readers.
As a result, Locus Mapping significantly improve inventory management operation and customer experience.
Locus Mapping is a cloud-based server and thus,
the virtual store view is available for customers. They may locate items in a retail store via digital signages and/or with mobile applications.
Inventory managers can clearly find out all the inventory information on a registered map from desktop PC or tablets. Within the map view, they can also search specific items and/or confirm the locations for the purpose of restocking. Item locations are useful as sales information in shelving allocation operation workflow.
P3 Finder SDK
Location navigation radar app for items with RAIN RFID
US10295661, US11009596, EP3349035
A 3D radar view displaying positioning information of multiple asset items tagged with RAIN RFID. Software Development Kits (aka. SDK) are available for custom Android App development.
As the location of an asset item is described in two dimensions, P3 Finder can help workers to search for items at stores and stockrooms.
2,500 licenses has been contracted since its release in October 2017.
Phase based tag locating technology
While RFID is a useful technology, there was a problem in which a tag placed away from an antenna reader could not be detected and a reader’s accuracy on identifying the locations was low.
RFLocus can specify the right and left position of multiple asset items in a shelf with an accuracy of 10 cm or less. In comparison with the conventional approach using signal strength, RFLocus’s patented phase information technology reads more than 400 times per second. The technology herein uses all these collected data to compute for the tags’ positions relative to the reader in use. The resulting positioning information is not affected by tag sensitivity and reflection.
