Abstract

Radio frequency identification (RFID) system is widely used in many sectors mainly for tracking purposes. RFID system uses radio waves signal which does not need the item to be in contact for identification. The main objective of this research project is to develop an RFID based tracking system for automotive manufacturing industry. This project includes development of automation technology on management of data related to the RFID system and testing of the RFID system to monitor the flow of the automotive components in a manufacturing company. Experiments were performed to identify the optimum settings for the RFID system. Results of the system setup and calibration are presented in this report. The system was set up in an automotive plant using the optimum settings and data was collected. Results showed that two antennas are required to be set up on a stand for a best tracking performance. However, further improvement is desired to improve the tracking performance to a full success rate. It is recommended to set up two antennas at each side of the receiving dock in a horizontal arrangement to overcome the shorter reading distance and tag movement speed problem. At current system configuration, the reading success rate recorded was around 50%. That means, only 50% of the desired items are detected and recorded. This poor value has been determined to be the results of the hardware limitations and wear and tear effects of existing equipment.
