Beyond barcodes and RFID: WiFi,RTLS, and other next-gen sensor technologies for manufacturing
RFID is not the only advanced AIDC technology for stores, warehouses, and factory floors. An increasingly popular alternative uses more affordable Wi-Fi networks to track equipment and inventory, and more bleeding-edge technologies, including mesh networks, are emerging. This diverse array of wireless sensor technologies, in turn, is fueling the growth of real-time location systems (RTLSes) that can locate goods—and people—down to centimeters. In this eBook, read the experts' advice on finding the right mix of technologies for every warehouse and shop floor.
