Contacting Ms Le Tong who designed this concept model
This project was a final year project done in late 1998 at the Industrial Design Program at the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of New South Wales in Australia.
At the end of the project Ms Le Tong graduated and the demostration model was taken apart.
Unfortunately the Industrial Design Program at the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of New South Wales in Australia has no further record of this project.
Mike Marsh from Trolley Scan (Pty) Ltd in South Africa, who provided some of the RFID expertise, still has some of the drawings etc from the project and can be contacted at
