The Real Time Monitoring (RTM) is a DataMan barcode reader performance-monitoring system. By incorporating a scalable architecture, a web-based performance statistics interface, and vision technology, the RTM empowers facility managers with data that removes system defects and optimizes processes. The RTM is designed to leverage DataMan's image-based barcode reading capabilities in industries such as food and beverage, logistics and pharmaceutical. The RTM is a server-based product that connects to a network of DataMan readers and regularly pulls read rate information as well as images from packages. When a process error results in a package with an unread barcode, images are sent to RTM, which automatically evaluates and categorizes each image with terms such as "package with no label present" or "poorly printed labels," and stores them in a database. The date is then accesible for future viewing through any device with a web browser. The RTM can help facility managers to analyze and share their system performance, allowing them to continually improve their processes.
