This slide deck is for our senior design capstone at Francis Tuttle Technology Center's Pre-Engineering Academy. It is through a course call Engineering Design and Development by Project Lead the Way. We spend an entire semester on a project and go through the engineering process. This class was amazing!! I would love to answer any questions on our presentation.

  • Aaron WeaverRFID has commercial applications that are used daily. Wal-Mart uses it for there warehousing pallet inventory. Pikepass is something we are familiar with. They use passive RFID tags now as supposed to the old active tags to identify a specific car passing through the gateway. The reason they switched was because the passive tags are inexpensive, and do not have to have a battery changed. Since they are not transmitting constantly that’s why they have to be aligned more specific than the active which could be place anywhere. Libraries take advantage of this new technology making managing the books much easier. [Explain System flow] JoshWe’ve analyzed many systems and devised a custom tailored application for Francis Tuttle’s specific needs.

  • JoshBarcoding is a excellent way to simply place a barcode on an asset to take inventory.However, a line of sight is required to scan the barcode requiring the person to find the object and scan it.In addition, it is time consuming. Mrs. Derek told us that “it to young ladies the whole summer to do 2/3 of the Rockwell campus not including offices”RFID has been making advances in the recent years for smaller applications to be achievable.There is no line of sight required meaning when taking inventory a whole room can be scanned in a matter of seconds.Our chosen software allows for Wi-Fi enabled inventory allowing for it to be updated from room to room.The current database can be easily switched over to the new software.However, the initial time taken to implement all the tags on every asset will take time.

  • Yuvraj That is, a scanner has to "see" the bar code to read it, which means people usually have to orient the bar code towards a scanner for it to be read. Radio frequency identification, by contrast, doesn’t require line of sight. RFID tags can be read as long as they are within range of a reader.

  • Yuvraj
  • JoshThe provider for our RFID tags is UPM Raflatac. This is for the standard RFID tags, not the metal mounted tags. For the metal assets, we can use barcodes. There is, however, an option to buy metal mounted tags, which cost a bit more than normal tags.

  • JoshASAPwas chosen after research of many rfid inventory suppliers and then a process of conference calls to the respective companies. There is a number of reason to why they stood at of the crowd. The interface is extremely user friendly with endless options to create a personalized experience. Report creator on the software is clean and easy to use. It allows for fields to be selected and de-selected then formatting the chosen options to a PDF or excel file. ASAP is a web based software which allows for compliance with Infinite Vision. There are hosting options available which allows for our database to be based by them. Everything is online from the software updates to their private training videos. On the support side, the Gold level is recommended for the first year. This level allows for unlimited incidents for 1 year and email and telephone support. There will be a dedicated support specialist for Francis Tuttle. Response times have a maximum of one hour and a target 24 hour fix window. Four authorized contact personal will assist us in any questions or problems.
  • Yuvraj Here is the moblie application that will be ran on the MC-3190z. The picture on the right is a screen display of when inventory is began. It is extremely simply to add an asset to the existing inventory.
