Barcoding, Inc. & AeroScout Industrial To Deliver Hybrid RFID Solutions
Barcoding and AeroScout’s hybrid RFID system consists of:
◾Active RFID from AeroScout: AeroScout’s Wi-Fi-based, active RFID tags transmit signals to standard wireless access points via their own internal power supply. These signals are then relayed to AeroScout’s MobileView software applications that determine the asset’s location, condition and status. Active RFID technology is used for real-time location tracking of high-value and high-impact mobile assets.
◾Passive RFID from Barcoding: Although a passive RFID system collects and transmits the same location and status information as active RFID, passive RFID tags rely on readers to pick up their signal and to supply the power necessary to respond and broadcast their data. Passive RFID is used for tracking a high volume of lower-cost items that exist within an area where chokepoint/gateway detection is sufficient.
◾AeroScout MobileView: The hybrid solution collects and aggregates the real-time data from active and passive RFID technologies. This application turns the passive and active visibility data into actionable information, delivering sophisticated mapping, rules-based alerting, role-based visualization and business intelligence (BI) reporting.
