AIDC Technology

Technology and Business Trends

Until now, AIDC industry has been focusing on scanning (bar code and other technologies described on our pages). However, we see following trends:

  • More standardization in OS:; Portable data terminals being based on more powerful and more open operating system standards. Unique low-level OS modifications and device drivers are being replaced by industry-standard device drivers supported by Windows CE, PalmOS, Symbian EPOC, etc. AIDC vendors are becoming product and device systems integrators.
  • Both Industry-Specific and General Purpose Portable Devices - not only industry spercific devices are being designed but many general-purpose devices like Palm and Handspring are being equipped with scanners. Added value comes through functional-enhancing software from AIDC vendors like Symbol e.g. SPT 1500 adds scanning to Palm devices
  • RFID taking over from manual scanning high-value asset location applications
  • More Wireless LAN connected devices
  • More IEEE 802.11-based ( a wireless LAN standard) devices - AIDC vendors are giving up unique wireless LAN standards in favour of industry-standards LANs
  • More integration between AIDC applications and supply-chain applications
