While much attention is placed upon IoT Wide Area Networks (WAN) in support of communications ranging from feet to miles, it is important to also recognize that many Internet of Things applications would not be possible without “last inch” communications.
RFID and other “last inch” technologies such as Bluetooth are critical as part of IoT Operations planning and communications for any enterprise.
The use of Radio Frequency ID (RFID) for IoT solutions is a critical element of business for many industry verticals such as retail, manufacturing, oil & gas, and the automobile industry. In the upcoming RFID Journal Live! event, Jason Philpot (manager of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana) will discuss how his company cuts costs of managing finished inventory with RFID.
Honda has solved the problem of managing finished inventory at its Indiana plant, by implementing an RFID system that includes solar-powered fixed readers and an innovative in-car reader. Philpot will explain how the system has reduced the expense of hiring workers during peak new-model periods by 80 percent, and how it has decreased the amount of time required to perform critical quality checks.
LIVE! 2017 will also feature four industry-specific and four technical conference tracks, as well as eight in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, four post-conference seminars, fast-track training provided by RFID4U, and RFID Professional Institute certification. The event will be hosted alongside the IEEE RFID 2017 event and the 2017 RFID Journal Awards. What’s more, the event will offer exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the industry’s leading technology firms. For more information, visit www.rfidjournalevents.com/live.
