SmartInstrument™ Software Development Kit – SmartInstrument™
Reltronics Technologies’ SmartInstrument™ is a hot pluggable RFID middleware
which also is an edge server that receives data from multiple sources and readers
simultaneously and delivers this data to the host application. This is executed
regardless of the reader protocols, network connectivity, reader types and standards.
SmartInstrument™ not only supports representative RFID readers but also
provides a highly customizable firmware which is not limited to support exclusively
the RFID technology; it supports barcodes, sensor integration, GPS, and Wireless
(GSM/CDMA/TDMA) integration. Furthermore, SmartInstrument™ can be classified
based upon the application it intends to serve and can behave as a network appliance,
a reader, or can also have specific middleware functionalities.
Currently, SmartInstrument™ is exclusively an end-users’ choice where
end-users can directly plug the SmartInstrument™ into their RFID network to
begin receiving data and divert the information to custom or third party applications
running at their premises and gaining the benefit of automatic data connectivity.
The SmartInstrument™ Software Development Kit (SDK) guides value-added resellers
(VARs), developers, and integrators to be more streamlined in the development and
add the SmartInstrument™ capability into their or client’s applications.
SmartInstrument™ SDK can be utilized by System Integrators, Independent Software
Vendors, and organizations who have prevalent ERP solutions and who seek to deploy
the RFID sensor network to automate their business systems as well as reduce superfluous
overheads on route for maximizing profits. The SmartInstrument™ enables the
integration of their sensor network to enable integration of multiple RFID readers
of various standards and facilitate data acquisition in real time into their application
with minimal effort. With the help of SmartInstrument™ SDK, end users
can integrate years of experience built into the SmartInstrument™ directly
into their ERP applications to acquire the real time data and utilize this data
as per their requirement.
