Even though RFID provides much more efficient and automated tracking, legacy barcode solutions are still used in uniform and laundry management systems such as in hotels for uniform and linen inventory management as well as in commercial dry cleaner facilities.
Barcode solutions are a great choice for low volume low cost deployments for smaller entities, mainly because of the low hardware costs. The barcode labels are typically less costly than RFID tags and barcode scanners are cheaper than RFID readers.
Wearable barcode system
In a conventional way, the barcode attached to a garment or item is manually scanned with a handheld or mounted barcode scanner. The high human handling factor is mainly due to nature of the garments, as the barcodes are usually attached somewhere inside the uniform, as well as due to the fabric being draped and folded during processing.
In this case the handling of garments and scanning must be done in an interactive manner. With wearable barcode system in combination with voice functional reminders, the efficiency can be much improved.
