RFID System for Forklifts

The sensor-based RFID Forklift System automatically records an RFID-tagged pallet’s exact storage location during handling and slotting processes, without requiring the operator to initiate traditional manual data collection methods.

New or existing forklifts can be retrofitted to work with the RFID Forklift System. The system uses an acoustic sensor, broad beam antenna and controller logic to identify an RFID pallet tag after it has been loaded onto the forklift. The System then identifies a pallet storage location, using a narrow beam antenna, laser-height sensor and controller logic to confirm that the specific pallet has been picked up or dropped off at that location. These slotting transactions are fed to the enterprise system via WiFi connectivity.
