Laundry management: A cool consumer use case

It’s great to read about the strong ROI that industry gains from deploying RFID. Sometimes, however, the consumer benefits from deploying the technology are overlooked. And while home laundry monitoring isn’t exactly a commercialized use case, just imagine the benefits.

As Sini Syrjala points out in her blog post in RFID Arena, imagine how cool it would be if your clothes were fitted with RFID tags, and readers in your home could

RFID could help you to locate that lost laundry item.

pinpoint exactly where that pair of jeans is that you really want to wear to dinner tonight. Or, you could determine the exact location of that missing SmartWool sock that has turned the $21 purchase price for the pair into a lost investment.

Restaurants, casinos, hospitals and other industries have successfully used RFID for years to track uniforms. With the cost of the technology dropping rapidly, there’s no reason why an in-home laundry monitoring system couldn’t be developed.

Combine that with the RFID-enabled appliances arriving on the market, such as washing machines that can communicate via RFID, and you’ve got a win-win situation. At the Consumer Electronics Show in January, NXP demonstrated how washing machines outfitted with NXP multi-application solutions automatically identify the best wash-cycle program for your expensive clothes and also enables maintenance and service options through mobile phone connectivity.

In addition, RFID sensors could send users an alert when a wash cycle was complete and ready to move to the dryer. That would eliminate wet clothing sitting in the unit for too long, forcing it to be washed a second time, which is a waste of electricity and water.
