Optima: RFID - beyond barcodes

2010-05-01 | Software

Barcodes are used the world over in a multitude of situations: from supermarkets to airports – and especially in productive environments where it is essential to have a “live” update of the position of goods. This technology is, however, being overtaken by RFID - Radio Frequency Identification technology, which not only finds applications in the industrial world, but also in medical, safety and free-time activities. Optima uses this technology to enhance the features of the 2010 version of Opty-Way® Enterprise enabling to speed up production processes, maximizing efficiency and quality of productive cycles.

Optima: RFID - beyond barcodes

In a Danish suburb, the blood pressure of a woman is monitored while she removes the weeds from her garden. And, during a safety exercise at an American power plant, 20 workers are evacuated and registered. What do all these scenes have in common? RFID - Radio Frequency Identification technology. All over the world and in each and every sector, the use of this technology is in continuous evolution and is expanding extremely fast. Identification by means of radio frequency and the electronic labelling of items are now a reality with which we can receive a myriad of information, creating a new panorama: the Internet of objects.
If, up to now, innovation has been concentrated on the acquisition of accurate information (boxes, packaging), attention is now mainly moving towards the integration of the transmitted data, not only inside company organization, but also along the entire value chain. The predominant aim of innovation, therefore, has moved towards the transformation of this data into company knowledge able to boost the further innovation of processes and strategies. The use of RFID has become widespread in many sectors, with concrete innovations in aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, consumer and retail goods, right up to hotels and public services.
