The Korean automaker will use PicoTag ISO 15693 compliant cards from INSIDE Contactless to monitor the flow of crated parts and supplies. Using the cards to identify the crates and boxes within each crate, accurate inventory data can be obtained quickly and easily. Hyudai will also use INSIDE’s M300-2G long range handheld tag readers.
INSIDE CHOSEN BY ID FUTURE FOR RFID MANAGEMENT SYSTEM PROJECT IN KOREA
Aix en Provence, France, November 26th, 2004 – INSIDE Contactless, through its Korean partner, ID Future, has won the project for the supply of several tens of thousands of PicoTag™ cards and M300-2G long range readers to Hyundai Cards and KISCOMM for the RFID inventory management system.
The application involves tagging each box with an RFID tag containing relevant data such as the box number, card information, subcontractor’s information etc. These boxes are, in turn, packed into a bigger box which is also tagged and delivered to Hyundai Cards by their suppliers. During the delivery inspection, Hyundai employees can easily check the content by reading the tags with the M300-2G long range reader, thus verifying if the delivered products correspond with the placed order and the store database. Thanks to anti-collision capability and long range communication distance between the reader and the tags, the information is accurately read within seconds, without needing to open the box. The information is then sent to the central server for warehouse stock inventory and distribution management.
YoungSik Park, Sales Manager for ID Future, comments: “With INSIDE’s RFID system in place, the status of the stock is regularly updated, providing customers with real time traceability of merchandise, efficient stock management and increased productivity.”
“INSIDE has developed strong partners all around the world, such as ID Future in Korea, to deliver first class systems that make RFID a reality for the logistics market”, says Dennis Khoo, Vice President of Sales and General Manager for the Asia Pacific region. He adds: “Being amongst the first to introduce ISO 15693 contactless products for the RFID market in the Year 2000, our products are now widely deployed in countless asset tracking and logistics management applications such as this one.”
