GlobeRanger, Ohio University Team to Provide RFID Platform for Education and Training.

RICHARDSON, Texas -- GlobeRanger, the leading provider of RFID, mobility and sensor-based software solutions, is working in partnership with the Center for Automatic Identification at Ohio University's Fritz J. and Dolores Russ College of Engineering and Technology 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 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), 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 tests to establish base line reliability data for the first two-dimensional bar code symbologies ("Code 16K and Code 49 Data Integrity Test") and to evaluate the robustness of those two high data capacity symbologies ("Code 16K and Code 49 Data Integrity Test").

"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 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. 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, 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.
