Schreiner PrinTrust: Labels for automotive vehicle identification (AVI), parking and government uses
Automatic billing of costs, contactless entering and exiting, plus app-based value-added services: RFID technology will facilitate parking in the future. Government uses are reliably supported by RFID as well along with enhanced security. Schreiner PrinTrust (Oberschleißheim, Germany) is a leading provider in the fields of RFID and security labels for vehicle identification. At Intertraffic 2020 in Amsterdam from 21-24 April, the spotlight will be on solutions for government uses and smart parking. Schreiner PrinTrust is going to showcase its latest portfolio of solutions for automatic vehicle identification (AVI): Third License Plates with RFID for official vehicle identification and RFID Windshield Solutions for on- and off-street parking will be the focus topics at its trade show booth.
Maximum security for government uses: The ((rfid))-3rd License Plate
For government uses, PrinTrust offers suitable solutions for vehicle identification that successfully address a serious issue: Vehicles without proper registration cause major damage worldwide in various forms—from lost tax revenue to vehicle thefts to increased security risks such as the circumvention of access controls. Effective ways to deter and provide faster proof of fraud and abuse are therefore in demand: The Third License Plate from Schreiner PrinTrust is a security label applied to the inside of a windshield and complements the commonly known metal license plates, which can easily be stolen, copied and illegally used on other vehicles. Due to its location inside the vehicle and protective mechanisms against tampering and counterfeiting, the Third License Plate frustrates attempts to steel or tamper with it. When peeling off the label the antenna and printed image are destroyed and tampering attempts become immediately visible. The self-adhesive seal is printed with the vehicle data issued by the registration authority and can also cover other use cases such as proof of insurance, payment of taxes or toll fees, parking permits and access control.
RFID labels specifically for smart parking and AVI applications
In the wake of increasing mobility, the volume of traffic keeps growing worldwide along with higher consumer expectations of efficiency and convenience. Therefore, solutions that accelerate traffic flow are particularly needed in bottleneck areas such as parking garage entrances and lanes at toll gate plazas. The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global enables contactless automatic vehicle identification (AVI) in a wide range of applications and efficiently supports reliable access control and electronic billing of fees for toll roads or parking facilities. Additionally, the “Secure” version provides an encrypted solution for use cases involving high-level security requirements. The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF is produced in the high-security environment certified according to ISO 14298 at Schreiner Group in Oberschleißheim.
When a driver approaches a parking garage gate, the barrier will automatically open by means of wireless technology via the chip embedded in the ((rfid))-Windshield Label on the windshield. The fees to be paid are calculated according to the recorded entry and exit times and charged to the user based on payment data stored in the parking facility operator’s IT system.
Efficient checks of on-street parking
In on-street parking applications, the ((rfid))-Windshield Label and its counterpart, the ((rfid))-Parking Permit, enhance efficiency. The ((rfid))-Parking Permit enables automatic and easy identification of vehicles from the outside at a distance of a few meters in a contactless process, which enormously reduces the effort involved. Due to the use of RFID, data transmission does not require line of sight. A complementary visual inspection can be performed by checking the printed information on the label and its security features.
All components from a one-stop shop
Schreiner PrinTrust offers an extensive product portfolio of labels specifically for parking and AVI purposes and more from a one-stop shop. Because in use cases for parking, suitable access media must be distributed to a large number of clients, Schreiner PrinTrust also offers handling of a customer’s entire project—from the selection and production of the RFID labels and optional carrier cards for the respective project, RFID cards to individual mailers to be sent the end users. This enormously reduces the coordination requirements for the customer and ensures the high quality of all components.
Full range of vehicle-related products
In addition, Schreiner PrinTrust will showcase security labels for a wide variety of vehicle applications such as stickers, highway vignettes and transfer seals.
