This new technology will be revolutionary for applications in Maintenance, Security, Facilities Management and Building Information Management
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 6, 2008
Meggabyte Software is pleased to announce that it has been granted a Patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the usage of RFID technology to enable the creation of Intelligent Environments.
"This new technology will be revolutionary for applications in Maintenance, Security, Facilities Management and Building Information Management," said Chris Boothroyd, CEO of Meggabyte. "People typically think of RFID being used on products in the store for just in time inventory and retail checkout but this new application attaches RFID tags to objects in the environment that don't move so they can be used to retrieve information about the environment you are standing in. Imagine being a facilities manager and being able to 'swipe' an office on demand and get the floor plans, furniture inventory and maintenance records for that room. Also in areas like equipment servicing where the gear itself is swipable and the system sends the technicians all of the part data and service history right to their mobile device."
"We are looking at applications of this knowledge empowerment technology all the way though the supply chain and when coupled with an online technical data management system like Aftercad Online -- we are creating the Intelligent Environment infrastructure for the 21st century."
"Now that we have the Patent granted in the US, we have begun discussions with a number of interested parties and already the variety and breadth of applications of this technology has surprised us."
