Laydown Yard Optimization Using RFID: A Cost and Time Perspective

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This project reports the use and applications of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technique in a laydown yard zone. Every construction site has a laydown yard with equipments and materials worth millions of dollars. The real-time exact tracking and location of these items saves money by avoiding duplicating the equipment and time. The paper highlights the tracking of equipments within the site. A set of 50 tags were used for the experimentation and validation process. The RFID tags were active in nature. The tags used were of different size and shapes which define their exact usage. The tags were put on different types of materials like metal, plastic, concrete among others to test their operation on these surfaces.
