Overview – RFID Asset Tracking Software System
GAO RFID Asset Tracking System is an integrated real-time RFID tracking and monitoring system. By placing RFID readers at various choke points, such as doorways, and placing RFID tags on important assets the system is able to track the movement of the tagged assets within the site and send out alerts when certain conditions are met.
Features – RFID Asset Tracking Software System
24 hour Unmanned Operation
Once the system is set up and configured, no additional user input is required. When a tagged asset passes through a choke point where an RFID reader is mounted, a record is automatically displayed on the server screen and written into the system database.
Remote Management through a Web Interface
The system can be managed remotely through a Web interface. Tags and assets can be added, edited, and removed by the responsible staff at the head office without them having to travel to the site.
Alerts and E-mail/Text Message Notifications
In the system, assets can be divided into groups. The system administrators are able to setup alert conditions for each group so that when certain assets pass through certain choke points a corresponding alert device is activated and e-mail message warnings are sent to responsible staff members. Optionally hardware can be used to deal with the alert condition in the form of a rely or GPIO device. Another option, based on service availability, is text (SMS) alerts.
Real-Time Map View
Through the software interface, the user is able to create a map for the site and monitor the events happening at different tracking points on the desktop in real time. Normal events and alert events are shown in different colors to catch users' attention.
All activities are stored in the database and reports can be generated by specifying different criteria such as dates, group names, tracking points and asset names.
User and User Group Management
The system supports multiple users and user groups. The administrator can choose to give different privileges such as tag management, asset management and reporting to different user groups.
