The first try: The library has a new RFID based materials management system. If patrons place materials over the RFID sensor pads located under the counter the materials checkout process is interrupted. I designed a decal set in Illustrator based on testing the active scan area of each RFID sensor pad. The yellow vinyl had the best contrast with the counter material. The line design has rounded corners on each element to prevent catching on materials as they are moved across the counter.The initial decals helped a bit but didn't solve the problem. Patrons continued to place materials over the RFID sensor pad.
We are trying a new approach, adding a clearer set of icons and indicating to patrons where to place their materials:
