  1. 1. RFID Technology & It’s UsesRFID Technology & It’s Uses Presented by: Ron AbdyPresented by: Ron Abdy 33rdrd July 2013July 2013
  2. 2. Who is BCDS?  Founded in 1982 in New South Wales  Headquarters in Sydney Australia  Experienced in products through Asia  Data capture solutions leader
  3. 3. What Has BCDS Implemented?What Has BCDS Implemented?  Asset Tracking – Astrack Enterprise  Visitor Tracking  Animal Tracking (kangaroos)  Healthcare Solutions  Retail Solutions  Mining Solutions  Defence Warehouse Solutions  Mobile Solutions in Transport
  4. 4. Radio Frequency Identification: RFID is an Automatic Data Capture technology that uses radio-frequency waves to read a movable item to identify, categorize & track... RFID is fast, reliable, and does not require physical line of sight or contact between reader/scanner and the RFID tagged item. What is RFID?What is RFID?
  5. 5. What is RFID?  RFID comes in several technologies. Each technology has its own application however in some applications there can be a crossover of these technologies.  Examples of Uses of the Technologies 1. Companion Animals, Livestock and Access Control (low frequency) 2. Used in Security, Access & Payment Systems (High Frequency) 3. Used in Supply Chain, Asset Management, Mining, Retail and Livestock (Ultra High Frequency) 4. Used in Manufacturing & Long Range Asset Management (100-200M) (Active - Battery Operated)
  6. 6. What is RFID? -- The Tags Tags can be attached to almost anything:  pallets or cases of product  vehicles  company assets or personnel  items such as apparel, luggage, laundry  people, livestock, or pets  high value electronics such as computers, TVs, camcorders
  7. 7. What is RFID? -- The Tags Tags can be read-only or read-write Tag memory can be factory or field programmed and optionally permanently locked (security) Data written to the tag left unlocked, can be modified over more than 100,000 times, allowing the the tag to be reused or updated
  8. 8. RFID System Selection Basics How do we select a Technology  How far do we want to read?  How fast do we need the data? How much Data do we need to store on the RFID tag? Do we need to have specific data on the tag (write to the tag)  How many? Attached to and surrounded by what?
  9. 9. What does BCDS Excel in?  Business & System Analysis  RFID Consultation & Design  System design  Development of Specifications  Software Development  Implementation including ongoing Service, Support & Maintenance  ISO9001 Certified
  10. 10. Advantages of RFID Systems  Ability to read data without visual access  Ability to read data from moving objects  Ability to read data at distance, from 3cm to 100 metres  Ability to secure the tag data  Ability to update data in the tag (write)  Ability to have automated read of tags.  Ability to have the tag form to suit the application
  11. 11. RFID in Animal Traceability
  12. 12. RFID in Animal TraceabilityRFID in Animal Traceability  RFID Allocation for Animal Track and Trace in Australia is limited read range RFID (1 metre)  The Meat and Livestock Aust. (MLA) and the National Live Stock Identification System (NLIS) have adopted the short read range for Cattle.  The Frequency for sheep identification going forward is still under discussion.  Currently BCDS is trialling long range (6metre) technology on Sheep Stations in NSW and at the moment the technology is proving successful
  13. 13. RFID in Animal Traceability Traceability from Station to Retail Station & Animal ID is read & recorded in a National EPC IS Database it includes the animal characteristics Integrate Bar Code & RFID Tag into a smart label, & create smart labels as required read & store all transport loading and unloading transactions & locations. Change to bar code ID as the carcass is broken down. All ID numbers, bar code & RFID, for each animal are consolidated in the EPC IS database. As shown in the diagram.
  14. 14. RFID in Animal Traceability EPC is a Database Web Based Complete animal history Accessible to all subscribers world wide Secure individual access Available to Government Agencies Upload/Download facilities for all producers, abattoirs & retailers Complete traceability of each carcass Is this ready to implement? No only implementation so far is a minor application in Hong Kong.
  15. 15. RFID in Animal Traceability What can BCDS do to Help? BCDS have extensive experience in WEB development Develop the WEB application Design the EPC IS in conjunction with all stakeholders Make it available to world wide subscribers Provide the infrastructure for complete traceability EPC IS Database Cont…

  17. 17. Limited number items at forklift speeds 8’ X 10’ doorways Electronic receipt & dispatch Wrong destination alert Electronic marking Pallet/container item tracking Manufacturing and Warehouse Applications
  18. 18. Hand Held Application Categories WirelessBatch Fixed Station
  19. 19. Conveyor / Assembly Line Read speed up to 2.3 M/sec 60+ items per container Inexpensive tunnels Longer tunnel more reads more items Electronic receipt Sorting Electronic marking
  20. 20. RFID in Defence Applications  Inventory and Asset management using long range RFID tags (6 metres)  Securing and sealing slow moving inventory  High accuracy in location and quantity of Inventory  Automatic confirmation for picking and deployment of inventory, using fixed and mobile readers  Inventory user identification  Allocate inventory to individual users automatically
  21. 21. RFID in Defence ApplicationsRFID in Defence Applications  Inventory tracking system is designed and implemented by BCDS into the Australian Defence Logistics Branch  The difference to other systems? Utilises a unique method of layered and nested locations  The database is available across the Australian defence network  Interfaces to the Australian Defence ERP
  22. 22. Document TrackingDocument Tracking Traceability of Highly Sensitive Documents Each document is tagged with a high visibility RFID tag, and the document ID stored in a database. Personnel are also issued with RFID identification cards for issue and tracking The readers for the application are supplied in different forms o Desk readers for the document repository (labelling & issuing documents) oPortal readers for the document repository & specified entries and exits.
  23. 23. Document TrackingDocument Tracking o Document tray readers for individual desks
  24. 24. Document Tracking Advantages Accurate knowledge of who has and where the document is in real time Alarms if the document is copied or is not visible to the system for a set period of time Alarms if the document is in a wrong location Alarm if the document is removed from an office or building Ability to read stacked documents by any reader Automatic secure document return
  25. 25. So Where is RFID in Smart Technology? Although RFID has been slow to take off due to manufacturing problems and the subsequent costs, those problems have been overcome to a degree and have given the technology the chance to be implemented. RFID in the Smart World is providing automatic identification across the board, from a cashless society, tracking of people, animals to assets and inventory. Applications are now available for IOS, Android and Windows smart phones, Tablets and Industrial Computers making it a mobile world
  26. 26. Smart Applications Retail Automation - in apparel, electrical goods and white goods, with auto inventory control for quantity and location, and auto Point of Sale. Retail applications today do not need dedicated mobile computers, smart phones and tablets are being implemented reducing cost and increasing user comfort. Asset management internal and external with tracking and security. For high security areas the integration of CCTV provides asset ID, user ID, location ID with immediate access to video for assurance.
  27. 27. Smart Applications Defence, Law Enforcement and Fire Fighting – asset management for arms ammunition, ordinance and accessories communications, batons, breathing equipment etc . Real time automatic asset management for user issue and deployment.
