identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags have stored electronical information. Generally speaking, there are two types of RFID tags, passive tag and active tag. Passive tags collect energy from a nearby RFID reader 's radio waves. Active tags have a local power pack unit such as a battery and may operate at hundreds of meters away from the RFID reader. RFID technology was first used during in 1940s, in World War II RFID was used
chain is the traditional barcode reader technology. This technology has been used for over 15 years now in Hunzal. The current CEO of Hunzal has seen discussion in the logistics and supply chain industry of this new radical technology known as the Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) and how it has benefited companies in significant ways. The CEO of Hunzal has given me the task to update him on the RFID technology. This report will investigate and propose how RFID is more beneficial than the
in the future. Thus, this development involves a more sophisticated decision support and control system with a powerful and faster Electromagnetic Automated Checkout System (EMACOS) that adapts Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to replace the existing barcode speed checkout counters system. 2. BACKGROUND OF THE CURRENT SELF-CHECKOUT SYSTEM 2.1 What are checkout systems? Today 's modern discount stores are based on the self-service convention. This involves the customer walk freely
Introduction Barcodes are used everywhere around us. They are used to track products through shipment, track products at a store and speed up and enhance the checkout process, as well as allowing faster access to information. Barcodes began to be used heavily in the 1970’s. This began a great movement in the consumer industry, speeding up the checkout process and allowing easier inventory tracking. However, just like all technologies, barcodes have been enhanced many times over and are being
ABSTRACT Electromagnetic Automatic Checkout System (EMACOS) is a self-checkout system for providing collective information systems with the identity of each physical item carrying Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in the supply chain in an automated and timely manner. The real time availability of item identity allows the items to be scanned and checked out for a faster, more accurately and an automatized service, leading to increase timeliness. In the context of supply chain operations
efficient manner. With RFID technology you can hit both of these points, making it a “two birds with one stone” scenario. When the systems are implemented properly (and properly is the key point) RFID technology is faster and more accurate than traditional methods of scanning and tracking. This eBook will be tailored toward end-users but in showing value for end users, VARs will see the value in bringing on RFID as a line, or partnering with an RFID provider. 1. What is RFID? RFID is short for Radio
alternative ways of working (p.196)” Several technologies are used in the supply chain management, such as EDI, ERP and Barcodes. The first part of this essay will critically review the applications of barcodes, especially 2D barcodes in China. Then, the challenges of using 2D
is a set of protocols and specifications for the wireless exchange of information over a short range and is the next technological stepping towards ubiquitous computing. It builds upon the existing RFID technology. NFC is a set of technical specifications and standards for transferring information between two proximate objects via the inductive coupling of radio frequency fields at 13.56 MHz. This technology will save the time. NFC technology allows people to integrate their daily-use loyalty cards
