The Wedge Watcher Team


Abstract:

The Wedge Watcher is a portable device that delves into the world of passive RFID tagging to help in the prevention of lost assets.Our objective is to lower the amount of lost golf clubs and the frustration associated with leaving a club behind.The system consists of a lightweight, battery operated, RFID reader that is attached to the side of a golf bag. This module, when paired with passive RFID tags on the golf clubs themselves, can help to determine if those golf clubs are being lost or forgotten on the course. The tags will be mounted to the clubs with tape and the reader will be securely fastened to the outside lip of the bag via a clip. This product will allow the user to be alerted by means of an audible alarm and an indicator on the LCD, when golf clubs are misplaced or not returned to the bag.
