Abstract

There is no better way to show the benefits of the deployment of Auto-ID systems than through a physical, industrial strength demonstration. This paper overviews the facilities that have been assembled in the Auto-ID Automation Laboratory in Cambridge, UK over the past two years as a means of supporting both research and implementation testing of Auto-ID systems within a manufacturing supply chain environment. The aim of the paper is enable future users of the laboratory (industrial and academic) to fully understand the facility that the Auto-ID Center has developed and the ways in which it might be usefully exploited.
