Acutrack has two components—mechanical and electrical. Acutrack’s mechanical motions come from the consumer. When an item is pulled forward on the hook, the belt pulls the rest of the products forward, like a conveyor belt, front facing the inventory in one motion.
The hook brings guidance for the belt along with supporting the products, reducing stress on the apparatus. The electrical side of Acutrack provides security and inventory tracking.
The belt for AcuTrack, along with its ergonomic design, is constructed with conductive materials on each segment for accurate inventory tracking capabilities. Directly above the belt is sensor spanning the entire length of the belt, it senses the motion of the conductive materials changing positions–counting the inventory.
From this, the information is passed on to the RFID chip, which in return calculates the movement of the belt, sending it to the inventory systems.
