Expo Education - RFID-Based Resource Management of Powered Industrial Trucks: Safety Technology that Delivers Real Return on Investment

Description: RFID-based wireless technology for managing fleets of powered industrial trucks (typically, forklifts, tow tractors and other material handling equipment) establishes total visibility of and accountability for both the vehicles and the people who operate them. The technology improves the workplace safety (and security) and automates compliance with OSHA regulations through vehicle access control, electronic safety inspection checklists, digital impact sensing, and real-time visibility and remote control of vehicles. In addition, the technology can reveal opportunities for capital and operating cost reductions, with automated tools for measuring and boosting productivity, managing assets, and streamlining vehicle maintenance.
