Embedded Control-Record Layouts Improve Database and RFID Sensor Testing

Embedded Control-Record Layouts Improve Database and RFID Sensor Testing

Software application designers and hardware application developers are working as teams to incorporate control-record layouts into end-to-end XML services for RFID networks.  Using these newly formed XML tag sets made up of customized control-records has improved the design and development scenarios across diverse hardware platforms, operating systems, applications, and databases.


As software application developers begin to build RFID-and-sensor networks within key growth areas, it has become common place to witness recent deployments of control-record structures embedded in sensors and their supporting software. These control records contribute immensely to the major functions of any RFID sensor application including inputs, data-lookup and storage, interface programming and outputs.  


These five major features are now incorporated into the application as a new and more efficient XML and database schema. This improved configuration has proven to meet growing demands to test multi-vendor RFID and sensor products for their ability to withstand extreme conditions.  These conditions include excessive heat and cold, shock, humidity, vibration, altitude, pressure and all are reliably monitored using the new control-record layout approach.


The key design feature in the programming arrangement described in this article is the idea that an intermediate control record receives and distributes signals to and from the software and hardware sides of the full application. This nicely integrates selected signals from both spheres of operation and allows an interface to adapt dynamically to different device types. As new devices are attached and configured with the application, no appreciable interference is noticed in the originally attached devices.


Because the embedded layout of many types of devices can be addressed through the use of control records, new applications are provided with better XML testing languages. Additionally, this feature provides designers with the opportunity to introduce database simulators for a more accurate and dynamic portrayal of RFID and Sensor operation.  This dynamic portrayal is added to the accumulated testing history and a better picture of performance emerges.


As RFID becomes more widely deployed, network reliability, security, and data integrity become increasingly critical. And for most companies, the task of ensuring those three things will be overwhelming and complex, especially across multiple hardware platforms and configurations and diverse supplier and partner networks and databases.


But because it is now feasible to virtually attach these control-record layouts to alleviate some of the major complexities associated with the required tests, any company can develop new products that may have been prohibitive in the past.

RFID Applications for Industry

RFID Applications for Industry

This article looks at the latest RFID applications for several kinds of industries, along with the specific software and hardware needed to implement the technology.  Although the individual needs of a company may vary, the S/W and hardware mentioned in this article are those that an experienced XML database consultant or developer might recommend.

Raw Materials/Mining/Forestry

RFID-tags can be attached in the lay down yard or at the mine.  The materials can easily be followed from that point to the refinery or factory.  

Tag detectors and readers can be used by factories to identify the material correctly and handle it appropriately.  The information that can be stored on the tags includes descriptions, purchasing details, storage advice and handling warnings.

If the raw material goes from the mine to a distribution warehouse, it may be stored for an extended period of time.  The tags will continue to function regardless of the time elapsed.

In order to implement the technology, an XML database consultant would suggest software that supports a client-server system or a multi-tiered computer system for tracking purposes.  

The tags may be active or passive.  Active tags send out a constant signal.  Passive tags must be scanned by a reader.  The equipment needed at the factory or warehouse depends on the type of tag attached at the yard or mine.   

Point of Sale or Delivery

The most popular supply chain RFID applications are used by distribution centers and smaller warehouses.  An XML database consultant might refer to the necessary software as "middleware".

The advantages of the technology have to do with marketing and customer relations.  Loss management and loss prevention are possible benefits.  It all depends on the type of items being sold or distributed, which is why consultants always recommend customized databases.  

The systems are used to track deliveries and inventory.  The billing system should be integrated with the delivery system in order to ensure that bills are paid in a timely manner, but not sent out before the items reach their destination.  

Passive tags are usually used in point of sale and delivery RFID applications, but for extremely valuable items, an active tag may be desirable.

Tracking Cargo through Customs

For companies that import cargo, the advantages of RFID tagging are easy to understand.  The tags must be installed before the merchandise is put on the ship or airliner.  From that point, the merchandise can be followed through the customs process.  Customers waiting on the shipments can be notified and updated on a regular basis.  

Implementing RFID applications of this type can only be profitable if an experienced XML database consultant designs the programs.  Otherwise, the bugs and glitches will annoy users and cause the application to fail.  When your company needs or wants new computer technology, it pays to consult a professional.
