RFID LIBRARY SYSTEM
GENERAL FEATURES OF THE SYSTEM
An RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) library system is a technology used by libraries to track and manage the inventory of books and other materials. This technology provides a number of advantages over traditional barcode systems, including improved accuracy and efficiency in tracking materials and greater security against theft.Kütüphanelerde RFID teknolojisinin ana avantajlarından biri, materyalleri kontrol etme ve iade etme ile ilgili süreçlerin çoğunu otomatikleştirme yeteneğidir.
With RFID, library staff no longer need to scan each item individually using a barcode scanner. This can greatly speed up the check-out process and reduce the possibility of errors due to human errors.
It is the solution to the problem of misplacement.
It allows several books to be checked in and out at the same time.
RFID technology can help library staff work more efficiently by automating many routine tasks and providing real-time information about library materials.
Carries out the safe entry and exit of books.
Performs regular book counts.
How does the RFID LIBRARY SYSTEM work?
- RFID Tags: A unique RFID tag or chip is placed on each library item (book, magazine, CD, DVD, etc.). These tags contain the item’s unique ID and related information (e.g., book title, author, ISBN, etc.).
RFID Readers: There are RFID readers located within the library or at various points. These readers detect RFID tags and read the information on the tags.
Book Delivery and Borrowing: Customers bring books to the RFID reader. The reader reads the RFID tag of the book and either removes the book from the inventory or starts the process of lending it to the customer.
Advantages of the System
Real Time Monitoring
Tracks the movement of books in the library. They keep track of which books were checked out when, where and by whom.
Fast Search and Find
RFID tags enable the shelf location of books to be quickly determined. This provides faster service to customers.
Book borrowing and return processes are faster. Instead of scanning books one by one, a group of books can be read together.
Borrowing Period Monitoring
RFID monitors the checkout times of books and automatically records and helps prevent delays.
It can be used to prevent accidental or unauthorized removal of books and can trigger alarm systems.
Areas of Use
RFID library system is used mainly in libraries, schools, universities and archives.

The use of RFID in the mining sector has become increasingly popular in recent years. In this article, we will give you information about how it is used and its application areas. The mining sector has long been a critical component of global economies, providing valuable resources used in various industries and sectors. Recently, RFID in the mining sector has provided numerous benefits and changed the shape of mining operations.
WHAT IS RFID?
RFID is a wireless communication technology that uses radio waves to transfer data between the reader and the tag. Tags are small, durable devices that can be affixed to objects, vehicles or personnel and contain unique identification information. RFID readers are devices that can communicate with and collect data from RFID tags. When an RFID tag enters the range of an RFID reader, the data stored in the tag is transmitted to the reader, enabling real-time tracking and monitoring of assets and personnel.
RFID Applications in the Mining Industry
One of the primary applications for RFID in the mining industry is asset tracking and management. In large mining operations, equipment, vehicles and tools are critical assets that must be tracked and efficiently managed to ensure smooth operations. RFID tags can be attached to these assets, allowing them to be accurately tracked and located in real time. This helps mining companies optimise asset utilisation, reduce equipment downtime and improve maintenance scheduling. RFID technology also enables automated inventory management as tagged items can be automatically scanned and recorded. This eliminates the need for manual counting and reduces human error.
Safety is a top priority in the mining industry and RFID has been instrumental in the development of safety measures. RFID tags can be worn by miners as personal protective equipment (PPE). This enables real-time monitoring of their location and ensures compliance with safety regulations. In the event of a collapse or gas leak, RFID technology can help miners to be found quickly. It can shorten response time and minimise potential damage. RFID-enabled access control systems reduce the risk of accidents by preventing unauthorised access to restricted areas.
RFID is also mainly used in maintenance and repair operations in the mining industry. Equipment maintenance is critical to mining operations, as failures can lead to costly downtime. RFID technology provides real-time data on equipment utilisation, performance and condition. This helps automate maintenance processes. RFID tags can be attached to equipment parts or components. This allows them to be easily identified and tracked. This enables predictive maintenance, where equipment problems can be detected early based on RFID data, allowing timely repair or replacement. This approach enables mining companies to optimise their maintenance programmes.
RFID Scale Automation Purpose
UHF RFID Weighbridge Automation, which was first implemented by Teknopalas in Turkey, enables the weighing of all carrier vehicles, routing, receiving load and driver information, ensuring weighing security, online data transfer to the central system and administrative reporting processes to be carried out unmanned, that is, without the need for an operator.
RFID Weighbridge Automation Features
Stickers affixed to vehicle windows cannot change hands between vehicles. Higgs4 chips, which are accepted by independent test organizations as the world’s best chip with high protection factor against UV light and increased security, which lose their functions when removed from the vehicle glass, are used.
In the system, the antennas do not need to see the tag, TPS RFID vehicle tags placed on the glass can be detected within the coverage area even if they are not seen by the antennas. This coverage area can be changed between 1-15 meters in line with the needs.
Central Management Module The system is designed to control 10 scales at the same time without delay.
The system can provide IP camera support that can be integrated into every scale at the same time. Weighing records of each vehicle weighed on the scale are matched with video or photo records.
Reportable Photo Recording Module
The moment of weighing is associated with the image values of the vehicle, the driver and the load, allowing visual tracking of past weighings.
Automatic Drive Control
The system reads the driver card of each driver passing through the scale and takes it under control together with the camera recording. Thus, unauthorized shift changes between drivers are taken under control.
All data written and read during the 24/7 operation of the system has always managed to be as consistent and reliable as the day it was first installed.
Web Based Reporting
The system allows authorized users to report via internet browsers without the need to install any program.
It must have a structure that will continue to operate in all weather conditions and adverse environmental conditions without loss of performance.
Labor is saved by eliminating manual data entry.
RFID Weighbridge Automation Working Principle
The vehicle enters the scale. The tare weight information of the vehicle is read and the data is transferred to the main computer. The RFID tag on the vehicle is automatically detected by the RFID reader and the vehicle identification information is read from the screen. The RFID tag of the driver is automatically detected by the RFID reader and the driver information is read from the screen. The RFID software checks the driver and vehicle information from an internal list. If the vehicle and driver information is valid, it reads the weight and stores the weighing record. All stages of the weighing process, start and end information are notified to the driver with relevant messages on the led display. If camera option is added, photos of the vehicle at the time of weighing are saved in the weighing database file.
RFID Weighbridge Automation Usage Areas
Solid Waste Transfer & Storage Centers When the silos arriving at the transfer stations stop on the scale, the license plate information is automatically sent to the central scale automation software and weighing is performed without any user intervention.
How the system works;
– High-security RFID chips are placed in all silos at the transfer stations and in the windows of the transfer vehicles. • RFID reader units on the platforms recognize vehicles approaching the platform.
• Recognition is carried out by chips in vehicle windows, RFID units placed on platforms and control software.
• The RFID system detects that the vehicle parked on the platform has completed its movement and turns the lights of the led panels on the platforms green. The system sends the information of the vehicle approaching the platform to the software.
• When the vehicle filling process is completed and the vehicle starts to leave the platform, the RFID system detects this situation and turns the lights of the led panels red.
Excavation Storage Areas
In the light of science, technology, zoning, urbanization, earthquake and urban transformation issues, the issue of solid waste, especially solid waste and recycling in the urban transformation process, is extremely important in terms of building a healthy environment and sustainable living spaces in our country.
Excavation Waste Measurement-Direction
Automation is the technology that enables the reduction, collection, temporary accumulation, transportation, recovery, utilization and disposal of excavated soil and construction and demolition wastes in a fast and controlled manner without harming the environment.
Waste Paper Collection Centers
Within the scope of automation, weighing and analysis of all scrap paper purchased in an integrated manner with weighbridge automation, tracking and administrative reporting processes can be provided.
Thanks to the RFID tags to be affixed to the windows of all vehicles carrying scrap paper, automatically identified vehicles will be weighed unmanned, and the analysis processes of all scrap paper purchased after the weighing process will be recorded and monitored and controlled.
