RFID solutions for your fleet management
You’ll benefit from RFID for fleet management for vehicles and equipment in several ways: in terms of processes, maintenance, safety, cost control, risk minimization and the sense of responsibility it gives your drivers, operators and riders.
These benefits are dependant upon reliable user identification and access control – the prime area of application for RFID.

Your benefits at a glance
RFID keeps your fleet running just as it should: Whether you’re a freight forwarder with commercial vehicles or a transport company with trucks. Long distances or short routes.
And not least because driver identification and access control significantly boost the usefulness of telematics for fuel and other fleet management solutions. At the same time, they lower costs, maintenance and administrative expenses.

RFID in theory and in practice
How you can benefit from RFID in other areasContactless user authentication and access control have become an indispensable part of our everyday (work) lives. Give your customers, employees and partners in other fields of application the convenience of RFID.
You have questions. We have answers.
How do RFID readers work?
When you use an RFID reader, it produces an alternating magnetic field at a frequency of 125 / 134.2 kHz (low frequency) or 13.56 MHz (high frequency). This field supplies energy to one or more transponder (media) located in its range. At the same time, data is exchanged between the reader and transponder through this field.
What can I use RFID systems for?
There are many potential uses for RFID technologies. Do you need technology-based personal identification (e.g. employee ID, personal ID, passport)? Not a problem with RFID! RFID is also a reliable solution for the identification of animals, contactless payments, time recording and physical access control (e.g. doors, turnstiles, lockers, ski lifts). And that’s nowhere near everything: Other potential applications include product identification, product protection (e.g. theft prevention), goods tracking, lifecycle management, Internet of Things (or IoT), fleet management and car or bike sharing.
How does RFID benefit me?
When you use RFID transponders, one of the benefits is that they don’t need visual contact to be read or written. RFID gives you a comparatively wear-free technology. For instance, there are no contacts that deteriorate (neither in the reader nor the transponder). This eliminates scanning problems that can occur with the contact-based credit cards or magnet stripe cards. Unlike printed barcodes, you can also write information to many RFID tags. RFID is also capable of withstanding environmental conditions like the wind, weather, UV radiation, soiling and chemicals. RFID also provides a scalable degree of security (e.g., from simple read-only tags to high security transponders tested by EAL/common-criteria).
