Outline

OUTLINE

  • Inspiration for idea

  • Mutation of concept to current form

  • Why a modular return system

  • Demonstration of results

  • What’s next


Introduction

INTRODUCTION

  • The lost (already returned) movie

  • Return deadlines and fees

  • The system doesn’t currently exist thus the dream to be the first to create and profit from it was born.


Problem statement

PROBLEM STATEMENT

  • The ability for instant notification to the customer that their item was received and the time it was received without employee interaction (i.e. the movie drop slot).


Original proposed solution

ORIGINAL PROPOSED SOLUTION

  • Outfit a regular return slot with a RFID reader and the media to be returned with RFID tags.

  • Provide a receipt output at the return slot for the customer notification of return.


Final solution

FINAL SOLUTION

  • Outfit a regular return slot with a RFID reader and the media to be returned with RFID tags.

  • Create the ability to send a text message or email notification to the customer.

  • No paper/printer involved.


Results

RESULTS

  • The Modular Return System was born!

  • A pluggable architecture that can integrate with virtually any customer database, input hardware (RFID, barcode, mag stripe, etc), and output notifications (Email, TXT Message, Receipt printer, LCD Display, etc).

Conclusions

CONCLUSIONS

  • A new product that with some refinements I plan to release and market to major video rental companies.

  • The Capstone Project created the motivational factor I’ve been needing to actually start and finish a project that I’ve thought of.


Future work

FUTURE WORK

  • Other related projects:

    • Robotic return slot for truly automated inventory system.

    • RFID secured computers, doors, cars, etc.
