As a RFID subject matter expert, Harold has been a keynote speaker around the world.  Talks at RFID World, RFID Live, the University of Chicago, Institute of Information Technology in Pune India, the China Technology Forum in Beijing and the Institute of Engineering and Technology in Brunei. Professional recognition includes record-setting attendance at RFID WebEx events for Motorola, HIMMS, publication of articles in major trade journals such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and author of the 5th edition of the RFID Certification Textbook.  His talk (March 2015) at the TechNexus event at the prestigious Chicago Lyric Opera House brought together RFID and IoT.  He performs innovative applications engineering for leading organizations such as ArcelorMittal, Booze Allen Hamilton, Chicago Botanic Gardens, Hill-Rom, Intel, Intermountain Health Care, L3, Westar, Utah Transit Authority, etc.

One of Harold’s strengths is adopting technology where the half-life is less than 30 months and disruptive to the incumbent. Clampitt is a serial inventor, using technology injection as a game changer.

Harold has an Electrical Engineering degree, is a registered Licensed Professional Engineer and holds an MBA from the University of Chicago with a specialty in Finance.  Outside of RFID, Harold holds an active commercial pilot license, enjoys glass blowing, sculpture making and is a long-term contributor to the Smile Train charity helping young children get a second chance at life!

Prior to joining American RFID Solutions LLC, Mr. Policheri held technology leadership roles in several early stage technology companies. Mr. Policheri has successfully managed software development projects around the world covering a wide range of operating systems, programming languages, test beds and advanced team collaboration tools to span language and time zone barriers via a work force in USA, Russia, Romania, India, and Malaysia.

Considered an expert in software development, Jim has also helped with the applications engineering for real time RFID infrastructures. He has worked with all modalities of RFID and created enterprise scale solutions with advanced sequestering and load balancing techniques. Jim’s innovations were invaluable to create solutions capable of processing immense volumes of empirical data. Recently he has focused his talents to become a world class expert on LLRP, including best practices work on this subject for RFID reader manufacturers. In 2009 Jim’s team completed updating our TrackStar software to support LLRP. Mr. Policheri has created software for RFID devices using passive, semi passive and active technologies.

Mr. Policheri has earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. Secondary studies included applied mathematics and physics. Since College Jim has earned certifications and recognition from top companies such as Macromedia, Sun, Microsoft and Apple.

Recently Jim’s team leveraged his LLRP success and completed the first RFID iPhone application. It provides a mobile user friendly environment for our TrackStar software. Jim’s enthusiasm and dedication to stay a step ahead of the technology curve has helped position ARS as a thought and solution leader in RFID.

With several major software developments to his credit, numerous RFID inventions and over 10 years of experience, Mr. Policheri is sought after for his expertise on RFID. Recently, he was a featured speaker at Oakton College and can frequently be found contributing his knowledge across the growing RFID communities on the web.

Outside of RFID, Jim is an avid golfer who competes in local and regional tournaments.
