|Name||Alien Intelligent Tag Radar|
|Description||The ability to know not only the contents of a tag, but also:|
Where is it?
Where is it going?
How fast is it moving?
As RFID expands into more applications, the simple knowledge that a given tag was seen at a certain read point is sometimes inadequate. For some applications we’d like to know more. Was the tag moving or stationary? Which direction? How fast? How far away?
Alien’s new Intelligent Tag Radar (ITR™) provides this and other information about the tag. This capability enables the RFID system to enhance a number of fundamental applications of passive, Gen 2 RFID, and will open up many new applications and sources of ROI for users.
ITR is a reader toolkit that you can use to implement these capabilities:
ITR-Velocity™ - provides real-time information on the speed of a tagged object, enabling discrimination between stationary and moving objects and automated decision-making based on speed and location in Retail, Asset Tracking and Security applications.
ITR- Singulation™ enables the reader to discern individual tagged objects form among many on a conveyor in applications like Baggage Handling, Manufacturing and Logistics.
ITR-Directionality™ - identifies whether an item is coming or going as well as the direction of the item in applications like Retail and Asset Tracking.
ITR-Range™ enables the system to locate tagged items within a given zone, in applications like Asset Tracking and Security.
