RFID technology is not only about identifying and tracking items, but also about automating processes and enabling machine-to-machine communication. The Auto-ID Lab at the University of Memphis will demonstrate, in the exhibit hall, how RFID systems can be used to identify objects and automate tasks in manufacturing. In this session, the lab director will explain how manufacturers can use RFID tag reads to trigger programmable logic controllers (PLCs). He will also discuss the potential benefits and applications of linked RFID and PLCs.View PowerPoint PresentationsSpeakerKevin BerissoDirector, AutoID Lab - University of Memphis

BAE Systems, an international defense, aerospace and security company, is in the process of deploying an RFID asset-tracking system at 20 manufacturing buildings located across three different sites in the United Kingdom. The project was implemented to improve asset location accuracy and stock-checking, and to reduce the impacts upon production for missing or lost tools. The firm used two pilot projects to gauge the success of the system and hardware design. During the pilots, detection issues were investigated and improved methods of tagging were developed, depending upon asset material type. Key takeaways: Learn how the firm worked with its key supplier to improve detection ranges through innovation and improved hardware, increasing its location accuracy and stock-checking, while reducing the risks of missing or lost tools on the production line. In addition, hear how the use of RFID technology may be further improved in the future.View PowerPoint PresentationSpeakersThomas CopelandData Analyst & System Administrator - BAE SystemsTony WilsonHead of Asset Management - BAE Systems
