Access control and other types of vehicle tracking applications have emerged as an extremely viable option for radio frequency identification technology in everything from gated communities to waste disposal sites to car washes (RFID). It also goes beyond simply raising the gate or opening the door; data in the database linked to the number programmed into the CAR RFID TAG can provide valuable information about the customer and/or vehicle. Controlling access and/or tracking the vehicle are just a few of the features of the application. It is entirely up to you how far you wish to go.
RFID is a contactless technology, which means more than ever before in today's world. As a result, there are numerous reasons to use RFID in vehicles. I've listed three of the most popular applications below.
Access Control Provides an Additional Layer of Security
Controlling vehicle access to specific locations, whether they are corporate facilities, gated communities, or downtown parking lots, can be difficult. By knowing which vehicle/individual had access to a specific area and when, RFID for access control applications adds an extra layer of security. Furthermore, if an incident occurs that necessitates the involvement of authorities, being able to track vehicle entries and exits is unquestionably advantageous. RFID is also a more efficient method of controlling access, obviating the need for on-site staff and the inconvenience of stopping for a card reader.
Vehicle Identification Comes in a Variety of Forms
Depending on the industry, vehicle identification can take many different forms. Car washes, for example, use RFID tags to identify vehicles enrolled in membership loyalty programs, with the number programmed into the tag associated with vehicle information in the back end software. Windshield tags for car washes are an excellent example of where the printing on the tag serves a dual purpose – both as a visual for the car wash with which the customer has a loyalty program and as advertising for the car wash while driving around. As a result, a double-sided RFID Windshield Tag is ideal for this type of application. More information on this product can be found further down.
Vehicle tracking services range from toll roads to dealerships.
Vehicle tracking applications range from tollway tracking to inventory tracking for large wholesale car dealerships and even large rental car companies. By automating inventory control, RFID helps to streamline the process and eliminate lag time for the customer. It can also increase employee accountability while decreasing labor and equipment costs. Car dealerships can also track information about the vehicle as it goes through the inspection process, much like a work-in-process application in manufacturing.
How to RFID Tag a Vehicle
Not all RFID tags are the same, and access control, vehicle identification, and vehicle tracking applications all face unique environmental challenges, such as extreme temperature ranges and sunlight, so depending on your specific application, there are a variety of tags that may be suitable.
RFID Windshield Tags – RFID Windshield Tags can be mounted inside or outside the vehicle. Exposing the tag to outdoor elements, such as UV rays, will reduce its longevity and necessitate a more durable tag construction. RFID Windshield tag inlays are typically optimized for use on windshield glass and have a read range of more than 20 feet. RFID Windshield Tags may also include built-in security features. Destructible material, strategically placed security slits, and even chip detachment prevent the RFID Windshield Tag from being transferred from one vehicle to another. RFID Windshield Tags can be printed on-site for applications where the information is dynamic or unknown prior to the tag application process. This type of RFID Windshield Tag is ideal for the vehicle tracking applications described previously.
RFID Rearview Mirror Hang Tags – The RFID Rearview Mirror Hang Tag, like the RFID Windshield Tag, is an excellent choice for access control, vehicle identification, and vehicle tracking. Whereas the RFID Windshield Tag is best suited for long-term applications, the RFID Rearview Mirror Hang Tag is best suited for short-term applications. Remove and reuse these tags as needed to increase your ROI. The RFID Rearview Mirror Hang Tag can effectively use redundant technology – RFID, barcode, and human readable numbers – thanks to double-sided printing and even double-sided variable printing (barcode on both sides).
Sideview Mirror RFID Tags – Some customers prefer not to have the RFID tag visible in the application, so the Sideview Mirror RFID Tag is an option. Place the RFID Sideview Mirror Tag beneath the car's sideview mirror to keep the tag hidden. There's even the option of flood coat printing the tag the same color as the vehicle to make the tag look even more vehicle-like. The success of this type of RFID tag, as with all RFID applications, will be heavily dependent on reader placement.
RFID Headlamp Tags – RFID Headlamp Tags, like Sideview Mirror RFID Tags, are ideal for vehicle applications where users do not want the tag to be highly visible. RFID Headlamp Tags are made up of a tag with a clear construction and an inlay that uses a light-sensitive chip.
RFID applications for access control, vehicle identification, and vehicle tracking are more affordable and accessible than ever before, and the possibilities for RFID are as diverse as the vehicles themselves.
