Modular Rental Return System

OUTLINE

  • Inspiration for idea

  • Mutation of concept to current form

  • Why a modular return system

  • Demonstration of results

  • What’s next


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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Other related projects:

    • Robotic return slot for truly automated inventory system.

    • RFID secured computers, doors, cars, etc.
