RTLS for rental devices

All rental devices outfitted with active RFID technology by Kathrein.

Zeppelin Rental offers equipment for construction, landscaping, events, and the public sector. The rental portfolio contains more than 62,000 machines and devices in 120 stores.

To manage the coming and going of these items, which was previously done on paper, the company turned to RTLS by Kathrein Solutions.

Kathrein combined active RFID tags on all devices, four read points per store, and the Kathrein CrossTalk IoT suite to reduce cost and time needed and improve availability.

Case Study by Kathrein Solutions | Intelligent Transportation Systems

Reading RAIN RFID @220 km/h with Full 128 bit AES Encryption! The world is getting smarter and IoT is on the advance. The automatic detection of vehicles with RAIN® RFID is no exception. Whether it is Electronic Vehicle Registra-tion (EVR), Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), Automated Vehicle Identification (AVI) or Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), every application requires highly accurate identification at the highest speed. Last but not least, the communication between a reader and a transponder as well as between a reader and a back-end system requires the highest level of security.

Case Study by Kathrein Solutions | Car Tracking and Distribution

AUDI Rolls out RFID in the Vehicle Logistics in Plants Worldwide! At the AUDI AG production sites, scattered parking spaces and a changing infrastructure lead to high expenses connected to the search of the vehicles due to vehicles not allocated to production lines. A lack of transparency regarding the use of the parking spaces and the existing control processes have been labour-intensive and costly due to several system and material failures. For this reason, AUDI AG opted for a standardised concept for vehicle tracking at all production locations.

Kathrein’s RFID Solution in Baggage Tracking

Customer Satisfaction with Service and Quality Millions of pieces of luggage are misrouted every year, which means a lot of work and additional costs for the airlines. A new technology at the airport – and RFID tags attached to the suitcases – will change that. The quality of the baggage tracking has increased greatly over the last few years. Nevertheless, airlines and airport operators are still faced with the task of handling the ever-increasing number of passengers and luggage without any losses, while at the same time meeting passengers’ expectations for transparent baggage tracking.
