Getting a grip on inventory management using RF
Date:10/24/2013

nhofer IZM. "This way, you can track how many products are in stock locally and also available any time."

The RF clip consists of a housing with a RF module, a microcontroller, a battery and a miniaturized vibration sensor. This clip is attached directly to the product at the retailer. Only a unique identification number (ID) is stored on the clip. That can be an item number or an arbitrary number, which the software associates with the item data for instance, model, color and size for a piece of clothing. If the clip is activated at the retailer, the RF module sends its ID at regular intervals to a central receiver in the store. The software compares the inventory and sends the data on to the web shop. This way, the dealer receives a constantly updated overview of the available inventory.

The neat thing: as soon as the piece of clothing in the store is moved for instance, because a customer takes it from a rack to try it on the miniaturized vibration sensor detects this and sends a corresponding report to the RF receiver. "In this case, the customer in the store has priority and the product is locked out on the web shop for a period of time," explains Seifert. Duplicate sales are thereby excluded. After the item is sold, the battery in the RF clip is charged and the RF clip can then be assigned and attached to a new item. Thanks to optimized energy management, the RF clip already achieves operating durations of up to nine months at present. This is usually sufficient for the period from receipt of goods to the sale of a product, so recharging is not necessary.

The newly developed RF clip of the researchers in Berlin is expected to be employed by gaxsys Gmbh in the context of a total system design that supports retailers in all relevant steps of process, such as creating, operating and maintaining a web shop, payment processing, documentation, right through to logistics. At the moment the focus of the project partners is the clothing se
