Wal-Mart developing RFID for forklifts
May 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Expanding incorporation of radio-frequency-identification (RFID) technology into its operations, Wal-Mart is working with forklift manufacturers to capture the potential benefits of RFID on forklifts.
Crown Equipment and Raymond, the primary suppliers of electric forklifts to Wal-Mart, have been testing RFID technologies and equipment modifications with and for Wal-Mart and others.
One of the challenges is to regulate the forklift's power so it doesn't interfere with RFID electronics. Another is giving a forklift the ability to read a specific tag.
