Talking about the Application of RFID Technology in Germany

With the development of the automotive industry, people's expectations for vehicle comfort, safety, and environmental performance are gradually increasing. Competition in the global automotive industry has intensified and automakers urgently need to find new solutions. This includes not only optimizing internal production processes, but also intelligently regulating automobile production and managing the value chain on a cross-enterprise basis. The automotive industry is Germany's largest industry. Some German automakers have begun to use RFID technology to enhance the transparency of the entire value chain and save the costs of production and distribution.

(1) Coordinated management and safety tracking of production and supply through RFID In the production line, effective regulation of production is one of the challenges facing the automotive industry. With advanced RFID systems, complex production processes and supply processes can be coordinated. Through RFID readers installed on containers or pallets, the system can automatically grasp the information of different parts of the entire value chain, and conduct safety regulation and seamless tracking.

Installing the chip on the motor and camshaft helps to achieve product safety management and improve the transparency of the product market life cycle. With its clear identification number and other special information, it is possible to identify and inspect automotive components. Fraudulent or unqualified parts will lose the opportunity to enter the value chain.

(II) RFID applied to parts logistics management RFID technology is applied in the automotive industry, and Volkswagen is in a leading position. In 2007, Volkswagen's manufacturers and suppliers have implemented application testing of RFID technology in the field of material logistics. At the Wolfsburg plant, Volkswagen has equipped its 3,000 containers with electronic tags. The antennas in the hall and forklift can correctly identify the containers and the goods in the containers. When the product is in storage, RFID technology can also effectively save energy. In just a few seconds, four pallets can be immediately identified and entered into an inventory management system. In the project test, advanced read-write technology can also eliminate interference factors and accurately identify metal containers. The long-term goal of using RFID technology is to use RFID technology to automate the flow of materials between suppliers and manufacturers, and to achieve paperless management of the integrated production and sales group.

In the Daimler Group, RFID technology has also been used as a powerful tool to increase efficiency. As a member of EPC International, the company has participated in the international standardization of RFID technology. Now it has applied RFID technology to various fields. From the end of 2009, the Berlin plant started to apply RFID-based management systems to carriers for transport engines. In this way, the operation of the engine inside the factory, the process of transporting the engine to the body factory, and the process of returning the carrier to the factory can be automatically tracked.

(III) The technical potential of RFID in automotive testing RFID is not only in the logistics field. Daimler announced in early 2010 that the company has developed new solutions for automotive testing and quality assurance. Before the product is delivered to the customer, the company thoroughly tests the new model. For example, a Mercedes-Benz E-Class car has to complete 36 million kilometers of test mileage, which is equivalent to 900 orbits around the Earth. Since different components must be included in the scope of testing, they also need to be improved. Therefore, the cost of records and evaluation of such tests is very large. Through the use of RFID technology, the entire process will become very simple and transparent in the future, and it will be possible to automate the tracking of detection results. In a vehicle test, 135 plastic parts inside the Mercedes-Benz Actros truck and 58 metal parts in the engine compartment of the Mercedes-Benz C-class car have been equipped with RFID readers. These information carriers can be Store all necessary technical details and perform non-contact reading. In the first test, the car, after installing the antenna and reader, was capable of automatically recognizing 130 auto parts at any time and place and correcting the data system. Logistics Industry At the DHL Innovation Center showroom, the process of delivering parcels from A to B is striking. Through the demonstration of the entire process from cargo booking to delivery, visitors can witness the future of the logistics world. RFID technology is crucial throughout the entire process. With the RFID chip installed, the package can be safely managed and seamlessly tracked. Moreover, this technology has great potential in customer service and climate protection. The Innovation Center and technical experts from the scientific and business communities have come up with specific designs and implementation plans. An example is "smart trucks." Future smart vehicles will use RFID technology, combined with GPS-based route guidance systems, to optimize transportation routes and improve vehicle carrying capacity. This will not only reduce transportation costs but also reduce CO2 emissions. At the same time, logistics service providers can respond flexibly to customer aspirations in a timely manner.
