  • Introduction What is RFID ? Why RFID over Bar-Code ? RFID Working and Infrastructure3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640
  • What is RFID? Electronic tagging technology that allows an object, place, or person to be automatically identified at a distance without a direct line-of- sight, using an electromagnetic challenge/response exchange.3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640
  • RFID• 40 years old technology• Why being Used NOW? • right time to use the technology • Benefits OUTWEIGH the Deployment Costs3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640
  • Why RFID over Barcode ? Ability to read without line-of-sight Serialized numbering scheme enables more powerful  Understanding  Diagnosing  Controlling of Supply Chain Serial numbers provides individual entity tracking and much more detailed behavior of SCM than UPC or EAN used in Bar codes No duplicate reading of the same tag – a possibility in Bar codes More powerful sensor-network and monitoring-system than bar-code systems.3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640
  • RFID Components RFID Reader TAG Antenna Silicon Chip Substrate3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640
  • Working of RFID Reader generate signals that are dual purpose: provide power for a tag, and create an interrogation signal. Tag captures the energy from Reader and executes commands sent by the Reader Tag sends back a signal containing a unique digital ID (96-bit serial number) that can be looked up in a database available to the reader to determine its identity, perhaps expressed as a name, manufacturer, SKU (stock keeping unit) number, and cost. Tags are generally passive because they require no batteries or maintenance.3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640
  • RFID Infrastructure Existing software systems UNABLE to handle serial numbers Solution – RFID Middleware RFID Middleware : Layer between RFID readers and the application software Consists of : 1. Lower level device and data management 2. Higher Interpretation level Context generation and Interpretation Device Data Management Management3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640
  • RFID Infrastructure (contd.) Lower level devices such as motion sensors, programmable logic arrays and human interfaces fetch data and provides to Data management layer Data management layer provides some functionality of filtering data due to intermittent appearances and disappearances After the data management layer yields data, the Interpretation layer extracts inference from such data and forwards it to the applications that deploy RFID3rd December 2005 @Copyrights Reserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640

  • Procurement and DistributionDistribution  Distribution centre is divided in different groups depending on the quantity of goods received  Goods to be used internally in US arrive in pallets & imported goods arrive in re-usable boxes.  Employees have access to the inventory levels of all the products  Employee makes two scans- 1. For identifying the pallet 2. For identifying the location from where the stock had to be picked up  Bar codes & RFID used to label different products, shelves & bins  The hand held computers guide employee to the location of the specific product.  The quantity of the product required from the center is entered in the hand held computer, which updates the information on the main central server.  computers enable packaging department to get accurate information such as storage, packaging & shipping,  Saves time in unnecessary paperwork.3rd December 2005  Enables supervisorsReserved 2005 - RFID Team : INFS 640 closely @Copyrights to monitor their employees
