RFLocus is a tech company providing software services that can detect the movement and locate products with RFID tags based on the world's most advanced RFID software analysis technology. They joined CarriRo Connecting Partners in July 2021.
We will start providing new solution services linked with their real location management system service "Locus Mapping". As inventory and location management can be performed fully automatically at distribution warehouse sites and manufacturing sites using RFID, it can significantly reduce the time and cost of inventory and inventory search operations.
"Locus Mapping", which can detect the location of inventory with RFID attached with high accuracy by radio wave analysis of RFID, has been provided since April 2020, and has already been provided at distribution sites and manufacturing sites of major companies. The solution service jointly developed this time is to install an antenna that reads RFID on the logistics support robot CarriRo®, automatically collect radio waves in inventory with RFID attached, and identify the position using the company's analysis technology. It is a service that can automatically identify the inventory / location and display it on the map without human intervention.
RFID reading antenna is externally installed on the logistics support robot CarriRo®, and it automatically patrols the building to perform RFID reading. The collected data is analyzed by RFLocus' radio wave positioning algorithm. After that, the inventory result that reflects the real location is shown on the map. By using this map, it is used for inventory search at the time of daily delivery and usage status management in the warehouse.
It is a startup of Location Tech, which was founded in 2015 with the aim of realizing a society that visualizes the location and movement of things by combining the automatic recognition technology "RFID" that reads and writes data with radio waves and advanced technology. We have developed and provided a radar application "P3 Finder SDK" that instantly identifies the product position by utilizing the patented high-precision RFID tag position identification technology. It mainly contributes to efficiency and labor saving in inventory management operations at apparel stores, factories, warehouses, etc.

[Logistics support robot CarriRo]
Logistics support robot CarriRo is the product developed from ZMP's autonomous driving technology such as Auto taxi. In the logistics industry, where labor is rapidly becoming scarce due to the declining birthrate and aging population, we are selling for the purpose of reducing the burden of transportation work and labor saving and efficiency improvement. Currently, we have introduced a total of about 250 users since the start of sales, and with the new added value of autonomous movement, we are expanding the introduction to various fields such as the service industry such as hotels, including distribution bases and factories.
