Axcess International Inc., a provider of wireless monitoring technology, has created the micro-wireless technology platform known as Dot. The product is the world's smallest, most powerful and lowest-cost battery-powered wireless computer, the company claimed. Dot enables automatic sensing, identification and assessment of business activity in real time. Its flexibility allows it to adjust to a variety of specific needs. Axcess expects Dot to serve as the heart of numerous products and technologies, such as long-range barcodes, electronic property tags, automatic building-access badges, vehicle-identification tags, electronic cargo-container seals and wireless sensor transmitters. The first end-user product to utilize Dot technology will be on the market in December in a card-based form factor. As a personnel credential or ultra-thin tag, it will be used on assets, vehicles and workers. Dot technology incorporates a battery-powered, software-definable wireless transceiver which is compatible with multiple global regulations, including the Electronic Product Code Class I and Gen II standards.
