Smart Shelves enabled with RFID

 HIP5917 - Version 2smallSmart-Shelf

The Smart-Shelf (or wireless inventory control system) uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to allow tracking of books, publications and folders in libraries or archiving departments .  Items are individually tagged with RFID labels which are then linked to a database, making them easily retrievable.

The Demonstration Centre shows how books, publications and documents can be tagged, using barcodes, RFID Tags or a combination of both.  By using RFID readers and barcode scanners, staff can trace the item location on shelves and identify misplaced items.  The application can be extended to include searching for relevant items more effectively, thereby minimising time spent by staff  managing paperwork, conducting searches and checks and reducing human error. 

If you would like to contact the NTAILS team or have any queries relating to the centre, please use the contact form below.
