GlobeRanger, Ohio University Provide RFID Platform for Education

GlobeRanger (Richardson, Tex.), provider of RFID, mobility and sensor-based software solutions, is working in partnership with the Center for Automatic Identification at Ohio University’s (Athens, Ohio) 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 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),” said George Brody, founder and chief technology officer GlobeRanger. “We are excited that they have chosen to use GlobeRanger's iMotion platform in their courses, lab and workshops,".

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 comprehensive bar code symbology tests to establish base line reliability data for the first two-dimensional bar code symbologies and to evaluate the robustness of those two high-data-capacity symbologies.

"Our relationship with GlobeRanger is 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, it will also teach our students using cutting-edge software."

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). 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.
