With the increasing application of RFID, more and more applications in life, the combination of drones and RFID has greatly improved the intelligence of drones.In addition to the delivery of drones, drones play a role in many applications, enabling drones to read data during flight.

A California Polytechnic University (Cal Poly) research project has found that drones using RFID readers can read tags attached to steel drills or utility pipes with 95% to 100% accuracy.Oilfields often need to store thousands of pipes (pipes used for drilling operations), which are stored in different areas of the oilfield, so inventory management is a very time-consuming task.With RFID, RFID readers can be read when they are within the range of items marked by electronic tags.


However, in a large storage site, it is not practical to deploy a fixed reader, and it is time consuming to use a handheld reader on a regular basis.By attaching RFID electronic tags to dozens of pipe caps or pipe insulators, drones with attached UHF readers can usually read passive UHF RFID tags at a distance of about 12 feet.This solution not only solves the prone errors of manual management, but also greatly improves the efficiency of work.However, in large storage areas, customers need to arrange a special person to "care" the drone so that the battery can be replaced in a timely manner.

MIT's research team has made RFID and drones more convenient for finding inventory.Compared to barcodes, the information contained on RFID tags can be more extensive and easier to change, and it's also cheaper.



Drones equipped with RFID card readers can be used to replace inventory-taking characters and complete work faster and with less hassle.Tall boxes where a person needs a ladder or elevator to enter can be easily reached by drones, which can be programmed to navigate the space independently, and they are more accurate and efficient than performing large-scale repetitive tasks than manually Better management.




By equipping the drone with a tiny relay, it acts like a Wi-Fi repeater.The drone receives the signal sent from the remote RFID reader and then forwards it to read nearby electronic tags.Because the relays are small, this means that smaller drones can be used, plastic parts can be used, can fit in narrow spaces, and there is no danger of personal injury. This not only eliminates additional RFID readers, but also allowsSmall drones do the same job as large drones.

The perfect combination of RFID and drone can carry out information management and control on inventory and coordinated supply chain.RFID drones have improved the operating efficiency of workers to a great extent, greatly reduced labor costs, optimized inventory levels, and tracked and controlled links such as assets.The FRID drone can replace some of the manpower to complete the warehouse inventory work, especially when the goods are placed on high shelves, then it is more convenient and quick to use the drone to inventory the goods. In some severe links, the temperature is high or there is a dangerous space.Man-machine operations are also safer.
