This activity regards the application of Radio Frequency IDentification technology. A joint effort with Oracle and Intel has been initiated which led to the formation of a University spin-off, INQUADRO srl (www.inquadro.com). The aim is to develop:
- Solutions for document management. The commercial software WhereDoc has been developed which allows tracking paper documents movement inside an office.
- Asset management. The commercial software WhereObj has been developed which allows identifying objects and their movements indoor and outdoor;
- Virtual guide for museums. The commercial software WhereArt has been developed to create a virtual guide for museums.
All the previous software packages are developed on top of the WhereX middleware, empowered by INQUADRO, which allows easily accessing a plethora of RFID technologies, such active and passive tags, sensor networks, WiFi localization, GPS.
