AIM Honors CDO Technologies for RFID Innovation
CDO RoadTag Provides Instant Access to Construction
Cranberry Township, PA
– April 15, 2015 – AIM, the industry
association and worldwide authority on barcode, RFID, RTLS, NFC and mobile
computing, has selected CDO Technologies of Dayton, Ohio, as the winner of the 2015 RFID Case Study Competition.
This award, given annually by AIM, recognizes those who have developed and
delivered compelling solutions that contribute to the growth and advancement of
radio frequency identification (RFID) through innovation and technologies which
provide benefits that decrease risk, increase the demand and accelerate the
adoption of RFID.
The Civil Engineering Group in the City of Dayton had a vision – ensure safe
roadways by knowing exactly when an area of asphalt begins to deteriorate so
the road could be fixed before a pothole appears. For anyone living in regions prone to roads
that freeze and thaw repeatedly, this seemed almost impossible, maybe even
crazy to expect such a tall order.
However, the team at CDO Technologies knew RFID technology could
be put to good use in this situation and deliver a viable solution. One that was cost effective as well. It would also let the City’s engineers know
which contractor or utility was responsible for the repair, and insure contractor
compliance, not to mention save taxpayer dollars.
CDO RoadTag provides programed RFID tags containing relevant information which
are provided to a contractor when a utility permit is issued. Contractors then place the tags under the
final lift of roadway surface. Once
installed, engineers and auditors have the ability, using RFID readers, to
retrieve data from the tags to get instant access to construction data.
CDO RoadTags are dependable, durable, and accurate in addition to saving time
and money. Definitely a win-win
innovation in RFID technology!
Mary Lou Bosco, Chief
Operating Officer of AIM, in announcing CDO’s selection as the 2015 RFID Case
Study Winner, said, "This use of technology
shows exactly how the adoption and implementation of RFID continues to
revolutionize the world we know today.
It not only has the potential to increase safety, but the cost savings
could have a significant positive impact on the fiscal future of cities around
the world. We congratulate the entire
CDO Technologies team for the success.”
