LPR Rewritable RFID Pallets
Friday, June 13, 2008Description :
LPR has developed, as part of a European pilot project, pallets equipped with last generation RFID chips with rewritable additional memory.

In addition to traceability of the pallet at all stages (sorting, delivery, collection, etc.), RFID pallets allow users, for the first time, to integrate product data directly on pallets and to share, Via an EPC-IS network, information on RFID events. This network, unlike EDI, makes available to all authorized actors real-time information: they are no longer held by a third party who sends them.

A true innovation in the world of rental pallets, this is what the industry n ° 2 offers, with its new reusable RFID chips integrated into its pallets. This solution, developed in partnership with Hub Télécom (member of the Aéroports de Paris group) according to EPC-Global standards, now allows to integrate two types of data on pallets:

- Information about the LPR pallet (the GRAI-96, the unit identifier of the pallet)

- Parcel information with an additional 512-bit rewritable memory. LPR customers can therefore integrate, if they wish, the Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) identifying each package, or any other type of data.

Ultimately, this memory could even replace the "barcode" labels type EAN128!

Economical and ecological, since reusable (unlike labels or chips stuck on the covers of loaded pallets), these new chips are placed inside the pallets of the pallets. This makes it possible to protect them from shocks, while avoiding high encapsulation costs.

Registered information is managed and shared on an EPC-IS network. This open network, which makes it possible to make available to any authorized third party (and in a standardized way) information relating to RFID events, will become in the years to come the new standard for exchanges of information based on RFID.

Grégoire de Laubier, project manager at LPR, explains: "With the EPC-IS, contrary to the traditional EDI, it is the one who needs information that demands them and no longer the one who holds them sends them . This makes it possible, on the one hand, to obtain more relevant information and, on the other hand, to avoid the transit of unnecessary information on the networks. "

LPR has delivered several hundred pallets equipped with RFID chips as part of a "life size" test, involving the entire supply chain (one industrialist, two logistics operators and one distributor). Supervised by GS1 (standardization body), it is held within the framework of the project of the European Commission BRIDGE, to promote RFID and the EPC-Global standard in Europe.
