Secure vehicle access

September 2018 Asset Management, EAS, RFID, Integrated Solutions

Nedap’s long-range RFID optimised secure vehicle access solutions provide organisations with the ability to protect employees and vehicles through the deployment of technology that controls access. The individual long-range readers can be deployed directly onto existing or new Impro access systems.

John Powell, CEO of Powell Tronics says there a number of instances where Nedap systems have been deployed to ensure secure vehicle access. Capital Plaza is a modern multi-tenant business centre located in Moscow. Capital Group requested the integration of an access control system and the Nedap long-range RFID system for automatic driver-based vehicle access to the car park.

In order to optimise vehicle access control at the entrances and exits of the parking facility, Nedap’s TRANSIT readers were installed. This long-range RFID reader identifies vehicles and its drivers up to 10 metres away. TRANSIT supports simultaneous identification of both the vehicle and driver.

In addition, within the transport sector, one of the more significant technological developments is the way that transportation fleets can be monitored from a distance. Nedap systems automatically conduct error-free data gathering pertaining to vehicle and vehicle related activities. Companies are provided with detailed information about their fleet, which enables them to plan and schedule vehicles in the most efficient way.

“Vehicle identification ensures that equipment such as loading docks, weighing platforms and refuelling stations can be utilised more efficiently by facilitating process automation. As a result, more transactions can be handled during the same time period. This results in less equipment being needed and decreased capital costs,” says Powell.

By identifying vehicles at several strategic locations in a vehicle depot, fleet managers can obtain detailed information about vehicle readiness. Based on this, real-time information vehicle utilisation can also be increased, thus potentially leading to reduced new vehicle requirements.

“We invite installers and integrators seeking long-range RFID access control and secure vehicle access systems to contact us so we can devise a solution to fit their exact requirements. In addition to the Nedap long-range RFID readers and cards we have a number of bespoke software solutions to complement the hardware components,” says Powell.
