Umbrella Storage System / Public device

Umbrella Storage System

Smart Umbrella Storage System, consisting of an umbrella stand, RFID wristbands and a passive RFID reader, is a system set in public places (such as libraries and malls) to provide people with automatic services to store their umbrellas. There are only four steps needed to complete the whole process, from storing to taking.The system is a human-centered design, combining attractive external appearance and practical internal features. Not only is it convenient for users, relieving their burdens in rainy days, but also plays an essential role in improving the public image.
