allAfrica.com reports: South Africa: RFID Number Plates Introduced
Pretoria-based iPico Holdings has launched an electronic number plate (ENP) solution for the transport market.(via Emerce)
It is based on its ultra-long range (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) technology that allows multiple vehicles to be read at speeds up to 250km/h from a range of 6m.
iPico's passive UHF RFID device is the enabling technology for the electronic vehicle identification (EVI) initiative by government departments, private and non-governmental organisations. iPico says that if the government rolls out an EVI project, the new technology can be used as a high integrity vehicle identification system.
EVI applications include electronic licensing, tolling, traffic and speed control, ticketing and cross-border control.
