Aaron is a senior in Computer Science who will be graduating in May 2012. He has been working at the University of Arkansas RFID Lab for about a year. Some of the projects he is currently working on include the Arkansas Radio Compliance (ARC) project and the tool checkout system. For ARC, he has been testing tags to make sure that they meet the specifications for several different products. He is also working on creating new specifications in for other categories. The tool checkout system is a new way of keeping inventory up to date and to automate checking items in and out. Interests for a career include developing new systems related to RFID as well as trying to integrate RFID into already developed systems. He is also interested in the process of how to expand RFID tags to new categories in retail stores.
