The UMD-Edge-Mobile is a platform software designed for Windows® Mobile data capture devices to provide general asset or inventory mobile solutions using of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and/or Barcode tagged assets.
The platform is designed to be uniquely configured to suit specifific customer or host application system requirements.
It provides core functionality and can operate independently using local file-based data, or can exchange data between the hand held device and host application using our growing host connector library or custom written as required.
Core application operational modes include:
A standard host conneor is available for the UMD-V2E Cloud based asset management system.
Custom host connectors can be developed to meet specific requirements.
1. Read / Write Mode (Tag Initialisation):
For reading and commissioning RFID tags as they are applied to assets.
2. Assign Tag:
In this mode, the device associates a list of assets with scanned RFID or Barcodes and can update the host database automatically.
3. Stocktake / Audit Mode:
Stocktake: RFID scans and records all items seen in an area. Saves each area, building/level/room as a different stocktake for future reference
Audit: RFID scans against a previous Audit or a list to see what items are now missing or have been added to an area. Includes an intuitive colour asset list that shows what is new and what is missing.
4. Find-It Mode:
Helps track down an individual item in an area, using the scanner’s directional antenna. It provides varying pitch audible tones to guide the user to the target RFID tagged asset from first contact (2 to 6m) down to 1cm. which depends on tag type and environmental variables.
The UMD-Edge-Mobile platform can generally be configured to any Windows® Mobile Device which has a suitable data capture and communications capabilities (eg. Barcode, RFID and Wifi)
