Visit to "NTAILS" project looking for RFID/QR code/barcode opportunities

One of the benefits of having an office on Wolverhampton University's Telford Campus is that we have access to their research projects and some exciting new technology.

One of the projects running at the moment is an EU-funded "NTAILS" project which is aimed at introducing all sorts of "sensor" technologies into Midlands businesses, including:


  • Radio Frequency Identification  (RFID)
  • Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC)
  • Barcodes and Quick Response Code (QR) Codes
  • Sensors
  • Global Positioning System (GPS)

Lots of our systems can benefit from this technology - our asbestos consultancy clients running Tracker, for example, have opportunities to use QR codes and RFID tags when labelling asbestos.  Another one of our clients, SMC, runs a warehouse control system which we created for them some time ago and they see immediate uses for the technology.

I was able to visit the NTAILS demonstration suite with some of my clients to see the technology in action - here are some of the photos:
