Four reasons for long range AVI

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2012 Access Control & Identity Management

Why should you consider long range RFID for automatic vehicle identification?

Systems for automatic vehicle identification (AVI) have been around for more than a decade. Systems that support vehicle access control and vehicle identification in general are applied in many different applications all over the world.

Manufacturers like Nedap annually ship thousands of long range RFID readers to qualified system integrators that apply microwave readers or UHF readers in installations at airports, seaports, bus terminals, taxi stands, city centres and industrial estates. However, at events and other occasions we still notice that many people are aware of the existence of such systems where a vehicle is identified at a distance of up to ten metres to allow that vehicle and its driver easy access.

Why should you consider long range RFID for AVI? There are a number of reasons to consider when comparing that technology over conventional proximity card technology or other conventional systems.

Convenience

One important reason to embrace AVI systems is the convenience they bring. Vehicle access control based on normal proximity access control cards or, even worse, barcode or magnetic stripe cards, often results in people leaning uncomfortably out of their windows towards the reader to show their access credential.

Security

In a lot of situations you still see guards checking authorisations of vehicles and drivers at the perimeter of industrial estates, residential areas and business facilities. This is usually time consuming, can cause inconsistent credential validation and is labour intensive. In a lot of situations automatic vehicle identification is not only more convenient but also more secure.

Traffic flow in a green environment

Congestion, queues and miscommunication can cause delay and have a negative impact on business and the wellbeing of people. We are moving towards an era where 70% of people will be living in urban territory.

Cities and business currently are investing heavily in infrastructure and facilities to keep all those people and their vehicles moving securely. Maintaining mobility is a challenge in itself for city administration and business management. Meeting that challenge while conforming to new emission standards is virtually impossible.

Tracking and tracing of vehicles

AVI is much more than just vehicle access control. Not only cars, but all kinds of vehicles can use AVI systems. Vehicles can be tracked as part of logistics or production processes.

AVI systems that use long range RFID have a lot to offer. In all the years Nedap has been developing and selling AVI systems, we still have to encounter the first customer that feels that he or she did not get sufficient return on the investment in AVI equipment. By far, most installations are running for many years, continuously contributing to the business of our clients on a daily basis.
