NXP’s latest generation of passive UHF RFID, called UCODE® DNA, can be used in Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) systems that make it easier to identify – and collect from – drivers of vehicles that aren’t properly registered. In an AVI system for vehicle registration, readers can be installed above, below, or to the side of the road. They can also be embedded in a handheld device, for use by government personnel. The tag, attached to the vehicle, uses the energy produced by the reader’s RF field, so there’s no need for a battery and the tag has a very long lifespan. Cryptography-based security minimizes errors and practically eliminates fraud. Vehicle owners (and fee collectors) can be confident that the right person is being billed, since readings are both highly accurate and highly secure.
