Automatic Identification

Course 2
Technologies for Automatic Identification
Components, applications, benefits
Without a quality data collection, it is impossible to obtain quality results in the industrial field. As manual data collection is not a secure method, to-day identification techniques are being used to automatically recognize the physical items in material flows.
Then, communication technologies, either wired or wireless, forward the information to data collection point, either on-line or in batch mode.
