Toronto Auto Wash, a Canadian company that operates car washes in the Greater Toronto Area, is employing RFID technology developed by GAO RFID to track and authorize automobiles that are on their car wash plans.
An RFID tag on the vehicle confirms the customer’s status, and the customer simply drives up and proceeds through the car wash without having to stop or stand in line to pay.
The system utilizes GAO’s GenTop reader and fixed ultra high frequency readers, antennas and EPC Gen 2 passive ultra high frequency windshield tags. The Car Wash System is powered by GAO’s LocateWare software.
Under the new system, the Toronto Auto Wash is provided with a real time view of what is happening at each of its locations, thus enable a better balance of scheduling staff, hours of operation and customer flow to specific locations.
