Solutions Center

Vendors often encourage companies to adopt a specific technology to solve their AIDC needs. As an independent entity, dedicated to all AIDC technologies, the Lab will assist companies in the determination of what the best solution is. Instead of focusing solely on RFID or bar coding, the Lab will help companies in selecting the best technology solution for their specific business needs.

In addition to providing advice to clients, the Lab can develop a prototype solution with its various hardware and software. The client can then fully develop the solution internally, or it can be used as a template for an external systems integrator.


The lab can provide the following services to companies of any size. You can also contact us about your specific needs.

  • RFID process analysis
  • RFID product/equipment validation or testing
  • Proof of concept testing
  • Bar code print quality verification
  • AIDC training
