THE USE OF SMART CHIP TECHNOLOGY IN THE ELECTRICAL CONTRACTING INDUSTRY
: In stock
Imagine a toolbox inventory that didn't require removing every tool from storage, and you have an idea of what "smart Chips" could mean for electrical contractors. Smart Chips represent advanced levels of identification technology such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Micro-Electromechanical Systems (MEMS). Smart chips store and transfer data wirelessly and don't require a line-of-sight reader to retrieve the stored information. ELECTRI International researchers factored contractors' needs and productivity questions in this latest study. The study follows tests of smart chips in tool-tracking inventory systems used on construction sites in order to examine how smart chip technology can manage equipment and materials more effectively on the job site. It also includes guidelines and strategies that electrical contractors can use to set up their own system RFID tags.
