PantryLabs Uses RFID to Enable True Grab-And-Go

PantryLabs is developing a unique, self-service kiosk that utilizes RFID technology to enable seamless, user and vendor friendly vending. Pantry’s vending machines are equipped with ThingMagic UHF reader modules and Smart Shelf RFID Antennas, and the goods contained within are labeled with RFID tags.  

All users need to do to use the system is simply swipe their payment and remove the item, the system senses the item or items taken and bills appropriately. The entire process can be completed in seconds, and is faster and more convenient than check out lines or even traditional vending machines. Trial units have been successfully deployed at several sites in California.

The system also provides value for food-service vendors as stock is constantly monitored in real time, alerting vendors to usage patterns and low stock. In addition, when restocking units, vendors do not need to manually inventory existing stock or additions, the system can automatically detect and update the stock in the case.

Seamlessly Upgrade Barcode Systems with Speedway Connect

One of RFID’s strongest value propositions is streamlining and increasing efficiency of automated data collection. A long-standing form of automated data collection has been scanning printed barcodes. Barcode technology represents a major upgrade of data collection over manually keying data, and as such have become nearly ubiquitous in inventory, Point-Of-Sale, ticketing and personal identification systems.

Just as barcodes represented a significant upgrade in collecting data over manual entry, UHF RFID represents a similar leap in technological capability over barcodes. Barcodes are limited by needing to be scanned one at a time, and with direct optical line-of-site. RFID solves these issues by allowing a very high throughput of up to 1100 tags per second, and does not require line-of-site allowing tags to be read inside a larger case, shopping cart, or other container.

To help seamlessly ingrate the benefits of RFID technology into existing barcode systems, Impinj developed the innovative, easy to use Speedway Connect software. Speedway Connect operates as a middleware client  for the powerful Speedway Revolution and XPortal readers to handle parsing and delivering RFID tag reads so that users can take advantage of the efficiency of RFID without needing to spend time or resources integrating a new hardware component or developing new software.

Speedway Connect allows Serial, TCP/IP, USB Drive and USB keyboard wedge output options, so that RFID can be deployed directly as a replacement or even alongside an existing barcode system. Speedway Connect represents a truly ‘plug and play’ option for integrating RFID solutions.

Increase Efficiency with the Passive Portal!

 Increase Efficiency with the Passive Portal!

 The Quick Mount Passive Portal

The Quick Mount Passive Portal lives up to its name! It is quick to install in any RFID system! This portal is designed to cover strategic congestion points such as conveyors and sorting machines in industrial environments such as loading docks. What makes it ideal is the portals ability to hit many separate tags at one time, creating unrivaled speed with only one Portal.

The Lisbon Airport used this portal along with RFID tags to significantly improve their sortation system.The Quick Mount Portal allowed the airport to automatically sort the baggage, decreasing the amount of lost baggage at the airport, and increased the capacity of luggage that could be sorted at one time.This specific portal was used because it can read an extremely high volume of tags, up to 900 at once. The ease of install and high-throughput are ideal for automatic sortation processes used in Airports.

MSRP for this portal is $ 3675.00. This portal comes with the passive readers, and antennas.

Zwipe: On-Card Biometric Authentication

zwipe12

The ZWIPE card employs an on-card fingerprint scanner which pre-authenticates the card holder before allowing the access control data to be sent. The user’s fingerprint scan is stored securely on the card so no biometric data needs to be stored on a local hardware device or server.

The Zwipe card communicates through ISO 14443 standards, making it widely compatible with existing contactless systems including Desfire EV1 and Mifare classic.

As all the biometric processing takes place on the credential itself, and is easily integrated into existing access control systems, the Zwipe card is an cost effective and simply way to deploy biometric security at any scale.
