ThingMagic Inc. announced its RFID readers have been implemented as part of an innovative network of presence-based, information displays at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab.
Visitor’s presence is sensed through integrated ultra high frequency RFID readers and RFID badges worn by guests. The system automates the creation of personal profiles and then saves it so it can be accessed online at a later date.
This new system enables visitor’s personalized content delivery and group information sharing, and delivers location and activity data to an interactive display, so individuals can track the progress of their visit.
It also allows visitors to build a downloadable, personalized portfolio of their visit; view, bookmark, and save information on research projects; and share their experiences with others who are interacting with the system.
