|IPICO has announced the launch of its next generation Electronic Vehicle Identification (EVI) solution, consisting of a suite of passive RFID products including tags, readers, middleware and custom developed software for various vehicle and people identification applications.
The new EVI solution provides a means for hands-free, long-distance, unique vehicle identification that enables electronic vehicle registration, insurance, road tax and tolling applications, law enforcement investigations, border control measures, pollution clearing verification and intelligent transport planning systems. pvorster This article is copyright 2007 UsingRFID.com.
These readers use IPICO’s digital signal processing decoders, which are designed to allow for dense reader deployments in close proximity with limited or no interference. The solution is supported by proximity or near field RFID readers, as well as credit card type tags used for drivers’ licenses and parking control tickets.
“We have implemented EVI solutions in a variety of countries with diverse requirements, overcoming reader density challenges while providing multi-read and write-to capability”, explained IPICO’s president, Gordon Westwater.
Developing countries embrace EVI
For example, the national transportation authorities in Brazil, South Africa, Egypt, Malaysia, and a number of other developing countries, have in recent months announced plans to deploy passive RFID as a compulsory element of vehicle license discs and/or license plates.
Other markets and applications
Amongst the many tests the IPICO solution has undergone successfully, it works with vehicles travelling at speeds of up to 260 km/h, can write new information to tags at speeds of up to 80 km/h, and successfully read 256-bit user-defined codes from tags at speeds of up to 160 km/h.
