I'm in need of a system that will track a box through different locations. For instance, I have a box of documents, and I want to know its current location. So far, I've thought of creating a QR code label for the box. Then we can have employees scan this code from different locations. But how would this help if the same QR code is being scanned from each site?
One thing with RFID we had trouble with: every time an item even shifted position a little bit within a location, the dang thing would get pinged again. Obvious ways to deal with that, but still a pita.

We won't shut up.
We won't go quietly away.
Secondly, anything that starts "I have an idea for a project" generally doesn't end well, in my experience. Sounds like your company has a problem with knowing where documents are. Fine; then analyse the problem, the business, the people, and come up with a solution. (extreme e.g. don't move the documents, move the people who need them; people generally know where they are!) If the solution involves IT, then ask a question in the appropriate forum.
The Master said, 'Am I indeed possessed of knowledge? I am not knowing. But if a mean person, who appears quite empty-like, ask anything of me, I set it forth from one end to the other, and exhaust it.'

Are you reading my mind!?
I just got this in my head as I was watching Peaky Blinders, with Nick Cave music, who Johnny Cash also covered, which got me to Hurt.
And I was thinking I should listen to it and about five minutes later I read your post.
I don't much like NIN's original though.
