WSS is an expert in technology for tagging and tracking garbage collection vehicles and containers. We offer tag-readers and different types of tags. Container tracking can be done either visually (barcode, signs, letters) or by radio waves (RFID). With our technology, you’ll be able to reliably track all of your containers. To get an idea of the possibilities here is an overview of the different tag types.
Tracking by a unique barcode. Disadvantages are that a barcode can be copied, and if the barcode is damaged or dirty the barcode will not read. This makes barcode tracking less suitable for use in waste applications.
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. This is a technology with the possibility to store information in a chip and to read the information using radio signals.
The major advantage of using RFID, is traceability without physical contact.
This makes the product applicable for waste applications. No more damaged, hard to reach or unreadable barcodes. Manufacturers offer different types of chips. Each chip type has its optimal application.
