Project Title: Investigations into Applications of RFID & robotic technology in laundry sorting at rest homes

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) and mechatronic technology has been applied to a laundry sorting system which can potentially be used by rest homes in the future to reduce the labour intensity of care givers, to increase the efficiency of laundry sorting, and to reduce the chance of missing garments. A type of small commercial RFID laundry tag, suitable for the laundry sorting conditions of a rest home, has been selected. These laundry tags have undergone endurance testing under actual washing and drying conditions with typical commercial laundry chemical products used in rest homes, and a laboratory conveyor belt was built for identifying and sorting tests of the tags. To overcome a major challenge of the limitations of their antenna and signal receiving systems in the proposed intelligent laundry sorting application, a strategy to coordinate the orientations of the tags, range of their antenna, and the amplification of signal receiving units has been investigated, and several antenna formats have been designed to improve the identification rate at different conveyor belt delivery speeds. A prototype laundry sorting system has been built, which consists of a complete tag detecting and identifying unit, the "brain", and a mechanical sorting implement unit, the "muscles".
