RFID solutions for fleet management
You’ll benefit from RFID for fleet management for vehicles and equipment in several ways: 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.

You have questions. We have answers.
Can I use ELATEC solutions to ensure that specific vehicles can only be driven by people who are authorized to drive them?
RFID, NFC and Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) are currently the most popular access control mechanisms for fleet management on the market. One of the reasons is that they can be easily connected to fleet management systems and logistics applications, so when a person logs onto a vehicle via RFID, the telematics system automatically and reliably checks whether he or she is legitimate as a driver and whether all compliance aspects for vehicle use are currently met (e.g., certifications, rest periods, etc.). If everything fits, the journey can begin; if not, the vehicle does not move a meter.
Operators use different transponder technologies. Can I be sure that our fleet management solutions with ELATEC products work everywhere?
Our RFID readers are compatible with >60 transponder technologies, including NFC and BLE for mobile access. They are also certified in 110 countries. In short: ELATEC products are universally applicable for fleet management solutions worldwide. So, yes, you can rely on them anywhere.
Our vehicles are on the road, sometimes under extreme conditions. Can I be sure that the ELATEC readers are sufficiently protected and function properly for this?
Our products are available in different versions. Their robustness has been well proven in a wide range of applications, including fleet management for vehicles operating in all kinds of conditions. In terms of water and dust IP ratings, we have achieved the maximum certification of IP-68 with some products, which means that they are protected against permanent immersion in water and are dust-tight.
