Transcript

  • 1. Aton’s Radio FrequencyIDentification:
    You Can Have RFaith in Us!
    Logistics & Traceability Solutions
  • 2. RFID Technology
  • 3. Scenario
    Everybody talks
    about RFID, but
    how mature is RFID?
  • 4. Scenario
    7824661
    RFID, as all technological solutions, has got its own life cycle
  • 5. Scenario
    Life cycle of a technology
    Initial enthusiasm
    “That’s the perfect solution for…”
    “Anything is possible!”
    Adoption
    “Nothing is working!”
    Disillusionment
  • 6. Scenario
    At which RFID technology life stage
    are we today ?
  • 7. Scenario
    Today we are here!
    Initial enthusiasm
    RFID TODAY
    Adoption
    Disillusionment
  • 8. The Good RFID Integrator
    At this stage, a good RFID integrator should
    • guide customer, evenbyimposingitself
    • 9. project a realistic RFID system
    • 10. not promise the impossible;-)
    • 11. always bebasedon proven experience
    • 12. remember RFID cannotguarantee 100%!!!
    This is so, more than in other technological fields
  • 13. An RFID System
    A step backwards…
  • 14. An RFID System
    What must an RFID System do?
  • 15. An RFID System
    RFID = Radio FrequencyIDentification
    Object Identification Technology by Radio Waves
    RFID
    System
    Identification of
    due objects
    in a given context
    in front of a certain event
    An RFID tag is attached to
    every object, thus becoming
    univocally identifiable in the system
  • 16. RFID Detection System
    RFID Detection System
    The goodstobeidentified
    go throughreading area, usually under a gate, and are detectedbythe system
    via reading of tagsattached on objectswhich, under the fieldcreatedby the gateantennas, report theiridentity,
    i.e. their “tagid”
    Gate
    Detection Area
  • 17. An RFID System
    Tag (or transponder)
    It is the element attached to items-to-be-identified, containing tag id
    Antenna
    Itis the HW part transmitting/receiving
    radio waves for RFID tag info reading
    RFID
    System
    Reader
    Connectedtoone or more antennas, it converts electricsignalsintodigitalones, interpreting some of the info read on the tag
    Sensors
    Detect people/objects passing through, in order
    to identify items inside detection area
    Middleware
    Manages the whole system, processes data
    and makes them available to users
  • 18. The Tag
    The tag is an object composed by
    antenna
    I.C. (memory, logic & TX/RX circuits)
    plastic support
  • 21. Factors influencing RFID
    Which factors affect functioning
    in an RFID system?
    n x m x p = “RFID works”
  • 22. Factors influencing RFID
    1
    Material on which tag is attached
  • 23. Material on which tag is attached
    Wood => OK
  • 24. Material on which tag is attached
    Metal = !
  • 25. Material on which tag is attached
    Liquids = !
  • 26. Material on which tag is attached
    Oily Substances = OK
  • 27. Factors influencing RFID
    2
    Tag Density & Positioning
  • 28. Tag density
  • 29. Tag density
    VisibleTag
    InvisibleTags
    (no detection
    due to interference)
  • 30. Tag positioning
  • 31. Tag positioning
    VisibleTags
    Invisibile Tag
    (due toorthogonalfield lines)
  • 32. Factors influencing RFID
    3
    Quantity of antennas / reader power
  • 33. Quantity of antennas & reader power
    Qty. of antennas & reader power

  • 34. RFID Middleware
  • 35. .onID
    Tag Writing
    Antennas
    Reader
    .onID manages the
    whole RFID system
    Sensors
    Detection Area
  • 36. .onID
    .onID allows abstraction of
    HW under use
    Each reader becomes just a data source,
    all readers are roughly equivalent
    At the same time it is possible to profit from each reader peculiarities (e.g.: Alien’s ITR)
  • 37. .onID
    Thanks to .onID
    • it is possible to limit detection fields
    • 38. sensor networks can bedirectlyinterfaced with .onID
    • 39. it is feasible to reducedependence from specific readers by avoiding their use as sensor “managers”
  • Middleware decodes datum
    Datum decoding & transformation
    One of RFID middleware tasks is to make the decoded datum available to the external system
    In brief, to all effects, it is as though the datum were written on the tag
    This is why .onID is on-line with EPCglobal
  • 40. Case Studies
    Aton has a great deal of successful experience in RFID applications

  • 63. .onID & Information Management Tools
    By means of a
    Management Tool called Qflow,
    it is possible to visually shape
    data flows received from the various
    RFID system components
  • 64. .onID & Information Management Tools
    An example of RFID system data flow
    An object, called “collector”, provides access to data gathered by reader
    A series of blocks called “processors” elaborate data flow according to configurable logics
    Useful information is made available to user on any client application via webservice
  • 65. .onID Positioning vs Other RFID MW
    .onID Approach
    • The other middleware standardize a number of functionalities which remain fixed & monolithic
    • 66. Aton introduces extreme configurability according
    to customer’s demand & real working environment
  • 67. .onID Positioning vs Other RFID MW
    Pros of .onID
    • .onIDowns a much more sophisticated data management thanmost of itscompetitors
