Black Technology ~ RFID Technology Combined with UAV Applied in Warehouse Management
- With the expansion of the inventory scale, the corresponding inventory count workload is also increasing. In the past two years, some technology companies have combined drones with RFID technology to improve the intelligence of drones. The drone carries an RFID reader, and based on the automatic planning of the flight route or the manual pilot method, the RFID tags of the goods on all shelves in the warehouse are collected and information is collected, and the real-time linkage with the warehouse management system is carried out to achieve rapid inventory.
- Real-time inventory of RFID-tagged items through an RFID reader enables warehouse managers to manage inventory more efficiently. RFID drones can replace part of manpower to complete warehouse inventory work. For example, when the goods are placed on high shelves, it will be more convenient to use the drone to count the goods, or in some high temperature or dangerous spaces, it will be safer to use the drone to complete the operation. Install a UHF RFID reader on the drone, and then let the drone accurately read RFID tags from tens of meters away.
- Because RFID drones are bundled with RFID readers, the size and weight of the drone hardware increase, which also increases the risk of drone crashes. Moreover, most of the small drones that can be used in large warehouses with autonomous navigation capabilities are not able to carry relatively large RFID card readers. Therefore, relevant research institutions have proposed a solution to read the information of RFID electronic tags through RFID drones, but without the need for additional RFID readers, the drone is equipped with a tiny repeater for Amplify the signal, and accept the signal sent from the remote RFID reader, and then read the information of the nearby RFID electronic tags.
- The application of drones combined with UHF RFID readers in warehouses can greatly reduce the work intensity of warehouse management personnel, timely find problems in the storage process of items and feed them back to relevant personnel for processing, which improves warehouse management. Benefit and efficiency. It can be seen that the application of UAV warehouse inventory combined with RFID technology will become one of the powerful means for warehouse management to improve competitiveness.
