Robot for automatic inventory!

RFID inventory accuracy with handheld RFID readers could be in excess of 98%, but process missteps and human errors decrease that accuracy to 85% - 95%. RF-T1 is a mobile and autonomous RFID system that performs automatically the inventory of a given space, for instance, a retail store or low-ceiling warehouse, that provides a higher RFID inventory accuracy than handheld readers. RF-T1 also locates each tagged item in the 3 axes (x, y and z), and provides a 3 dimension planogram of the products inside a space.

This information helps customers finding the products they are looking for, help employees detecting misplaced items, accelerates picking and return management,etc. RF-T1 can move in all directions since it can rotate without displacement. Therefore, it can easily move around any given space. The movement of AdvanRobot is synchronized with tag reading in order to maximize read rate. RF-T1 only moves after no more tags are being read at a given position.
