'RFly' Drones Find Missing Objects with Battery-Free RFIDs
Added Aug 29, 2017 | Rate View top rated
Large warehouses across the country lose billions of dollars every year from lost inventory. To enable more efficient inventory control, companies have looked into using cheap, battery-free RFID tags attached to objects similar to barcodes and which can be read and identified from a distance. However, today’s solutions for scanning RFIDs can only work at fairly short distances. 'RFly' is a new drone-based wireless technology from MIT that overcomes this range limitation and extends the coverage for RFID location. Its key innovation is a new relay technology that can integrate with a deployed RFID infrastructure and at the same time identify the location of every item to within less than a foot.
