About our patent pending RFID technology

First, what is RFID and how does it work?

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses antennas, readers and chips that contain information, such as serial numbers

Using the antennas, readers send out radio waves that briefly turn on the chips and send encrypted information back

Some of the data collected by the readers include serial numbers, direction the chips are traveling and distance they are from the antenna

This happens at such a high rate of speed that 1,000s of chips can be read per second


What makes our RFID system different?

Traditional method

Using a complex triangulation formula, the traditional method requires the object to be within range of 3 different antennas

Location is calculated from the distance the chip is from each of the 3 antennas, as shown in the image above

Due to various uncontrollable factors (humidity, wind, radio interference, and more), the traditional method is costly and fairly inaccurate, with a 7 foot margin of error

Our patent pending method

We created cheaper short range cable-like antennas that can be laid out in a grid system (think Cartesian plane from high school)

The readings from antennas of Reader X (image above) determine where the chip is on the 'x-axis'; and similarly for the 'y-axis'

Utilizing basic algebra, we can determine the location of the chip within 1 ½ inches of accuracy at 40% of the cost of the traditional method
