RFID Solutions for On- and Off-Street Parking
Contactless entering and exiting, automatic billing of charges and app-based supporting services—this is what the future of parking looks like. At the 19th EPA (European Parking Association) Congress and Exhibition, exhibitors will be showcasing their latest solutions, technologies and services for parking facility management for three days.
Along with increasing mobility the worldwide traffic volume keeps growing, as well as the related customer expectations. Especially bottlenecks such as entrances to parking garages and toll gates call for solutions that accelerate traffic flow. The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global enables contactless Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) in diverse applications. Reliable access control and electronic billing of distances driven on toll roads are thus efficiently supported. In the “Secure” version, an encrypted solution for applications with high security demands is available as well.
Convenient Off-Street Parking
When drivers approach a parking garage gate in their vehicles the barrier automatically opens via the wireless technology of the chip in the ((rfid))-Windshield Label applied to the inside of the front window. The fees to be paid are calculated by capturing the entry and exit times and charged to the customer based on the payment data stored in the IT system of the parking facility operator.
In on-street parking, the ((rfid))-Windshield Label and its counterpart, the ((rfid))-Parking Permit, enhance efficiency as well. With the ((rfid))-Parking Permit, vehicles can automatically and conveniently be identified on the outside in a contactless process from a distance of a few meters even without line of sight, which enormously reduces the verification effort. This verification can be complemented by a direct visual check based on the printed image and security features.
As a one-stop-shop Schreiner PrinTrust not only offers a diverse product portfolio of labels specifically developed for parking and AVI but also takes care of distributing the access media to the users. For these purposes, Schreiner PrinTrust offers the delivery of the total project from a single source–from the selection and production of suitable RFID labels through to individual mailers to consumers.
In addition to new developments for parking, PrinTrust offers solutions for new forms of urban mobility. The new adhesive plates are compact and flexible, and suitable for small electric vehicles to which classic license plates are difficult to attach.
Vehicles without proper registrations cause massive damage worldwide—from tax losses to vehicle thefts to higher security risks such as circumvention of access controls. Schreiner PrinTrust’s Third License Plate is an effective means of deterring fraud and abuse and of providing faster proof of illegal practices. The security label complements the conventional metal license plates. It is provided with the license plate data and affixed to the inside of the windshield. Consequently, unlike externally installed license plates, it is protected against theft and illegal use. In addition, it offers protective mechanisms against tampering and counterfeiting and may be used to cover further applications such as proof of insurance, proof of taxes and fees paid, parking permission, toll or access controls.
