Automatic identification systems enable direct entry of data into a computer system, programmable logic controller (PLC) or other microprocessor-controlled device without using a keyboard. AutoID technologies provide a quick, accurate and cost-effective way to track items, collect and enter data, and encode a wide range of information, from a simple detail to comprehensive statistics about an item or person.
In the Automatic Identification Systems module, students are introduced to the most popular AutoID technologies: bar codes, magnetic stripe cards, smart cards, biometric technologies and radio frequency (RF). Students observe how different automatic identification technologies offer different solutions to data collection and storage problems. Students determine the advantages/disadvantages, features and typical applications of each technology.
