HID and NEDAP, a leading Dutch RFID technology manufacturer and systems developer, announce the introduction of proximity card-enabled Automatic Vehicle Identification Reader (AVI) technology. This new dual ID, long distance, high speed AVI system integrates HID proximity cards with an in-vehicle mounted “Combi-Booster.” The 2.45 GHz transmitter securely transmits both the driver’s proximity serial ID number and an embedded vehicle ID simultaneously.
Extending the read range of a proximity card up to 33 Feet (10 Meters), the new AVI system can be read at vehicle speeds of up to 125 miles per hour (200 Km/h). The system can be configured to provide hands-free vehicle access to gated and secured areas, without the need to come to a stop. Eliminating the need to stop reduces the chances of an assault on the occupants of a vehicle and enables fast, convenient, and secure access for authorized vehicles and driver.
Benefits include the ability to substantially improve the level of security and operational efficiency while controlling access for vehicles which are commonly driven by many different drivers (e.g. buses, police, etc.). TRANS-IT AVI can be used for applications including automated parking payment, airport and seaport security, automated toll collections, and more. The open architecture aspects of the NEDAP solution allow for maximum flexibility when incorporating OEM components or integrating with existing systems.
