Robots in Retail : Yes, please!

An RFID robot that carries out automatic inventory, and directs customers to products? Sounds unusual! “Not at all,” says Dr. Johannes Trabert of MetraLabs, because the retail benefits are obvious: inventory is carried out swiftly and accurately, and costs are saved. When goods are out-of-stock, it is possible to detect this early. In the same way, goods which are in the incorrect place in the store can also be identified. And all of this happens completely automatically, without the need for valuable manpower. The employees in the store will have more time for the customer, for giving advice and selling. Soon, autonomous “shopping assistants” will be part of the everyday life of a store ...

RFID inlays are manufactured throughout the world for many purposes: for biometric passports, the contactless smart card market (e-ID, electronic healthcare cards, payment cards, public transportation) and for dual interface applications. At the same time, wire-embedded HF-RFID antennas are available and offer a number of advantages over printed, etched or galvanized variations. Among others, the ability to freely select shapes is enticing for card and passport manufacturers, since this can lead to competitive advantages. Further benefits such as environmental friendliness, durability and improved product quality should also be mentioned.

RFID technology has been endlessly debated for quite some time now within industry and retail. Certainly, it has evolved rapidly in recent years and is becoming more and more important. RFID technology makes it possible to broadly identify objects in large quantities. German companies employ the term “Industry 4.0” widely and are working hard to figure out new ways in which the technology can improve business. RFID and Industry 4.0 are directly linked to each other. The company Winckel has demonstrated this clearly with its latest technology developments.
