Fixed RFID readers don't do a good job tracking inventory as it moves about the store. Handheld readers can do the job pretty well, but requires store personnel to go out on the store floor and take the inventory. To deliver the solution, ADASA is partnering a third-party company that has automatic navigation, collision avoidance and safe indoor flight technology, with the drones using the sonar technology to avoid collisions with people and objects. It does not appear from the ADASA web site that the company as yet has any deployment of this drone reader system.
