The aim of this bachelor thesis was to create an automated warehouse management system based on available RFID technology. Today a lot of e ort is being spent on stocktaking due to manual steps within the warehouse management process. The goal with the project was to eliminate the manual steps that emerge from the usage of barcodes and replace them with the automatic system developed in this project. A prototype has been developed from extensive research and realistic testing of both soft- and hardware. The project has had the privilege to do these tests in a realistic environment at the logistics company Dan Cargo in Gothenburg. The prototype shows a simple concept that makes automated warehouse management possible, which results in a more e ective production both in the short and the long run. The system consists of two parts: a hardware part and a software part. The hardware part consists of an RFID reader and multiple RFID tags that are attached to pallets and pallet slots. The software part consists of a forklift client, station unit, server, database and an administration interface. The system can automatically register a pallet's movement and store it's current wherabouts in the database. With this foundation, further development is only a small step away and is a likely scenario in the future.
