Title: IMPLICITLY CONFIRMING ITEM MOVEMENT
Abstract:
Disclosed are various embodiments for implicitly confirming movement of an item in a materials handling facility. In one embodiment, a radio-frequency identifier (RFID) having an antenna directed at a plurality of storage locations is activated. Each of the storage locations has a corresponding RFID. A particular storage location of the plurality of storage location is determined based at least in part on an observed signal change of one of the corresponding RFIDs. An action is then initiated based at least in part on whether the particular storage location is an expected storage location.
