Reltronics Technologies is involved in Developing and Deploying novel, next-generation
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) application products. It develops the ReALTrack
RFID framework to quickly facilitate custom requirements of the customer and assure
integrity in the developed and deployed system.
It should be noted that certain combinations are more beneficial to an organization
based upon the organizational requirements. Due to customized layout of the
facilities, although the generic pilot can be implemented within a facility, a wider
deployment of the RFID technology for inventory management requires a due diligence
in terms of the placement of the antenna with regards to possible tag reads as well
as the placement of the infrastructure for commissioning and de-commissioning tags.
The Remote Resource Information (ReALTrack) application within the Reltronics Technologies
Inc. RFID Framework package offered is very versatile and is capable of tracking
leashed (RJ-45, RJ-11, RJ-22, or co-axial, etc.) assets and unleashed (RFID, wireless,
etc.) assets. The framework allows configuration for any standard, any reader,
any antenna, and any tag. ReALTrack enables identification of assets via TCP/IP
It is clear from recent marketing studies that having only passive asset management
for Technical assets is no longer sufficient for making robust data-driven decisions,
especially if any organization wants to sustain anticipated future growth.
Therefore, the Reltronics Technologies RFID framework (ReALTrack) implementation
being the next generation application will enable obtaining information about assets
that are either leashed or unleashed.
Radio frequency identification (RFID) and integrated sensor technologies are assisting
many companies in becoming resource efficient. These integrated technologies
are rapidly becoming critical tools for converging information on the location of
the assets, the environment, and state of the assets into valuable business information.
Reltronics Technologies’ ReALTrack framework provides developers and system
integrators with the infrastructure and resources they require to provide cost-effective
solutions that leverage and integrate RFID, sensor and location-tracking data.
The ReALTrack RFID software provides seamless integration with business logic and
processes by implementing and integrating a variety of automatic data collection
and sensor technologies. These technologies include RFID printers, RFID handheld
readers, passive and active fixed RFID readers, barcode scanners, mobile devices,
programmable logic controllers (PLCs), location-tracking systems, environmental
sensors and feedback mechanisms. The ReALTrack RFID software infrastructure
simplifies development, deployment, configuration and management tasks for highly
distributed, multi-site, intelligent sensor networks, and abstracts the interaction
with the network of devices. The RFID software facilitates using cross-communicating
sensors and forming an intelligent network. It can consolidate varied technologies
and provides a common management structure which includes a secured and event-driven
architecture. The following are some sample applications that are integrated
in the ReALTrack RFID software:
Used to identify, track, sort and detect an infinite variety of objects, including
people, vehicles, garments, containers, totes and pallets.
Can be used in applications such as proximity access control, time-and-attendance
management, vehicle identification, laundry/textile identification, asset tracking,
inventory control and factory automation.
Can be used for Access control, Inventory control, Container, pallet tracking, Product
tracking through manufacturing, Asset tracking, Equipment / people tracking in hospitals,
Parking lot control, and Car tracking in car rental lots.
ReALTrack RFID Software is a user Friendly, windows-based RFID Host Software.
Reltronics Technologies has developed several different application specific RFID
software solutions. This host-based software can be run on several Microsoft
Windows platforms, including 2000/XP/Vista.
ReALTrack RFID Software allows developing custom solutions and has been utilized
by several of the system integrators to quickly get specific applications developed.
These applications can be developed utilizing the SDK or the software development
kit provided by Reltronics Technologies but also to utilize Reltronics Technologies’
expertise and resources when required. The user can interface appropriate
RFID reader drivers through an API (Application Programming Interface) or physical
layer protocol. ReALTrack RFID software allows developing RFID systems with Software
Components and removes the dependency on hardware and infrastructure. Many
of the readers are already supported and more readers are being added as the market requires. The following are some of the RFID Software applications deployed
by Reltronics Technologies:
