Using Drones and RFID to Track Inventory at Large Areas

Using Drones and RFID to Track Inventory at Large Areas
Smartx is using a drone equipped with an Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip reader to track the location of outdoor inventory: such as livestock scattered over a wide range, or cars parked at a port facility. Each target to be tracked and identified is equipped with either an active or a passive RFID chip and the drone records the signals from those chips while flying autonomously overhead.
