Combining RFID and Drone platform could save millions of dollars
To address this challenge, a application can be developed to accumulated RFID tag signal data via an RFID reader mounted on their customized UAV. This would then be transmitted in flight, in real-time, back to their bespoke inventory management system using a GPRS connection. The inventory system then processes the RFID data and accurately determines the location of the individual bundles to within 2 square meters 98.2% of the time. locations are then updated by inventory system and graphically available on a map overlay to Yard managers, as well as to off-site offices, through Cloud-based platform, providing an unprecedented level of inventory accuracy.
