Data Acquisition and Automatic Identification

Function introduction Automatically identify industry barcode identification technology, radio frequency identification technology, biometric identification technology, smart card identification technology, optical character recognition technology, speech recognition technology, visual recognition technology, image recognition technology and other automatic identification technologies.

RFID plays an important role in the linking of many aspects of logistics from procurement, storage, transportation, sales, and services to social benefits.

The role of RFID is mainly divided into the following aspects.

First, the use of RFID technology used in the incoming goods segment changed the traditional vendor’s purchase management. It used the reader to obtain the goods and the logistics information arrived at the same time. The goods were automatically counted and passed to the information system for storage. The goods were placed in different stores. After the warehouse area, it is possible to use a fixed electronic tag reader/writer to monitor the storage status of the goods in the warehouse, such as the statistics of the specified stacking area and the time of the shelves. When the deadline for goods in the storage area is approaching, an alarm signal is automatically sent to the central dispatching system to notify the staff. When the warehouse is out of storage, the change of the information of the goods is also transmitted to the corresponding database. The use of RFID technology has enabled the registration of goods to become more automated, faster and more accurate, reduced personnel requirements and lost goods, enabled rapid pick-up and pickup, and minimized storage costs.

Second, the sales link Businesses in the sales cycle using electronic tags for goods statistics, just in the host system management software can query the detailed information of the goods, such as inventory types and quantities. Automatic scans and billings are also performed on the payment desk to replace the cumbersome manual collection mode. In addition, the system will monitor the expiration date of certain effective products, remind the merchants to make corresponding treatment, and avoid the loss of expired goods; meanwhile, the commodity management system manages the goods and timely Inform merchants of replenishment, ensure adequate supply, and increase sales efficiency

Third, the transport link on the surface of the goods labeled RFID, (such as affixed to the container and packaging), the goods can be tracked and controlled. The goods that are in the process of being transported are read by the readers at the stations, terminals, airports, highway exits, etc., and read the information of the electronic tags. Together with the position information of the goods, they are transmitted to the database of the cargo dispatching center, accurate and timely. To update cargo information in the logistics network. The application of RFID technology in the above links makes it possible for reasonable product inventory control and smart logistics technology.

RFID is very suitable for applications that require non-contact data collection and exchange, such as logistics tracking, delivery vehicles, warehouse shelves, and target identification. It is widely used in warehouse management, transportation management, material tracking, and shelf recognition in stores, and stores (especially Supermarket).

Conclusion: Radio frequency identification technology has gradually become an indispensable technology tool and means for enterprises to improve the level of logistics supply chain management, reduce costs, realize enterprise management informatization, and increase competitiveness. The market for RFID applications in the field of logistics will be unprecedentedly expanded. Looking at the application of RFID not only in the general logistics field, but also in many new areas, the development prospect of radio frequency identification technology is still very broad.
