  1. Sensors drive real-time inventory management.
  2. Edge compute simplifies communication and coordination with the sensor.



Overcome challenges associated with separate warehouse or factory buildings and numerous sources of signal interference. Some examples include:

  • Ability to trace items through a process flow
  • Enhanced space utilization
  • Seamless order picking and put-away

  1. Placed at receiving and other areas of a warehouse, the Intel® RSP sensors register the presence of RFID tags.
  2. Sensors track items as they move through staging to sorting and quality control.
  3. Sensors on each shelf provide accurate inventory, location, and time-stamp information.
  4. A central edge compute device from Intel tracks, aggregates, analyzes, and creates near-real-time analytics at the edge.
  5. An edge compute device from Intel can connect to an on-premise inventory system or the cloud through the Intel® RFID Sensor Platform SW Toolkit.
  6. Sensors facilitate automated inventory registration during each step of the order fulfillment process.
