The tag, also known as an "electronic label," "transponder" or "code plate," is made up of an RFID chip attached to an antenna. , mobility and sensor-based software solutions, is working in partnership with the Center for Automatic Identification at Ohio University's Fritz J. and Dolores Dolores (or Delores) was a common given name (until the 1960s in the USA); it is cognate with the English word "dolorous" (meaning sorrowful) and equivalent in meaning. Russ College of Engineering and Technology The College of Engineering and Technology (CET) was established as an autonomous institution within the Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology in Bhubaneswar, in Orissa, India. to provide its iMotion platform for use in classes and hands-on labs as well as in training programs for business executives.
GlobeRanger's iMotion platform allows unprecendented flexibility for Ohio University Ohio University, main campus at Athens; state supported; coeducational; chartered 1804, opened 1809 as the first college in the Old Northwest. There are additional campuses at Chiillicothe, Lancaster, and Zanesville, as well as facilities throughout the state. to leverage in studying how RFID, barcode and mobility applications can easily be developed and deployed while looking at the management of edge processes.
"Ohio University has a well established center for the study of auto ID technologies (AIDC (Automatic Identification and Data Collection or Capture) Capturing data electronically by scanning bar codes or alphanumeric codes (OCR, MICR), by reading magnetic stripes or by wireless means. See AIM, bar code and RFID. ), and we are excited that they have chosen to use GlobeRanger's iMotion platform in their courses, lab and workshops," said George Brody, founder and chief technology officer at GlobeRanger.
As the use of AIDC continues to increase, the Center for Automatic Identification helps meet the educational and research needs of clients through its workshops, R&D work, standards comparisons and independent verification of customized research results. Past research includes two very comprehensive bar code symbology sym·bol·o·gy

"Our relationship with GlobeRanger is very important to us," said James Fales, director and founder of the Center for Auto Identification at Ohio University. "Our partnership will not only enable us to perform more research but also to teach our students using cutting-edge software," he said.
At least one professor is already planning courses and hands-on labs using the software this academic year. "We'll also use iMotion technology during our annual Automatic Identification and Data Capture For "AIDC" the Taiwanese company, see .
Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) refers to the methods of automatically identifying objects, collecting data about them, and entering that data directly into computer systems (i.e. without human involvement). Technical Institute (AIDCTI) and upcoming seminars to model workflows and show infrastructure and data management examples for enterprise-wide, multi-site, global deployments," said Todd Myers, RFID researcher at the center.
The AIDCTI, co-sponsored by AIM, Inc. and the GS1, is held every month at the Center for Automatic Identification in Athens, Ohio
Athens is a historic college town in the southeastern part of the U.S. state of Ohio, best known as the home of Ohio University. . The center will conduct RFID workshops for business and IT managers on October 13-14 and December 8-9 in Columbus, Ohio.
About Ohio University AIDC
The Ohio University Center for Automatic Identification is the nation's first university-based research center devoted solely to the study of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC). AIDC includes the technologies of bar coding, magnetic stripe and radio frequency identification See RFID. , voice data entry. The Center was established in 1988 to provide a focused, unbiased, non-profit organization in recognition of the increasing uses of bar coding and other AIDC technologies.
