RFID Uses for Prosis Ambient Control

Patrick Pujo, Yves Dubromelle, Fouzia Ounnar


Product traceability is now an obligation in terms of observability and flexibility of manufacturing systems and logistics chains. RFID technologies are due to be more and more integrated into existing communication networks. New infotronics technologies will enlarge the capabilities to interact, to react and to customise control systems with innovative possibilities. New control approaches should be proposed based on the use of emerging technologies that would allow their operability in manufacturing sites. A model for ambient control production systems is proposed, based on a set of holonic entities interacting through set of entities that offer ambient service. After describing the PROSIS model, the ambient services that can be provided are presented.
