Alli-Solutions and Metalcraft, two technology companies, set out to help auto auctions track vehicles as they move throughout the auction lots. Using Metalcrafts RFID products, Alli-Solutions created the DogBone Vehicle Tracking System, a platform designed to track, locate and manage storage in large areas such as auctions.
The vehicle tracking system uses Metalcraft UHF RFID windshield tags featuring Impinj Monza 4 RFID tag chips. The windshield tags are placed on the windows interior, and are read by RFID readers placed around the auction site.
The implementation of RFID resulted in paperless, real-time tracking of vehicles on the lot. Auctions using this system saw a reduction in labor and insurance costs associated with locating missing inventory. DogBone can also be used to track business assets such as forklifts, helping to further optimize business processes, reduce costs, and bring efficiencies to all aspects of the auction business.
