to a new age
of mobility. Stay smart and safe on the road.
Limitless possibilities for locomotion.
Mobility and transportation are hot topics right now. What means of transport will we use to get around in the future? What fuels will we use? How can transit be made sustainable? How will cities regulate their traffic flows? And will the move away from individual transportation also work in rural areas? There are still no clear answers to many of these and other questions. One thing is certain, however: the industry is on the move—more than ever before. There are correspondingly many players on the market, and they all want to seize their opportunity. This means that manufacturers and suppliers of mobility solutions are facing an enormous challenge: they have to make decisions today that will still be viable tomorrow in order to survive in this rapidly changing industry, on both a national and international level.
This applies in particular to the area of user authentication and access control, which is more important than ever in the mobility industry. The success of car and bike sharing concepts, the increasing demand for e-mobility, the requirement for sustainable company fleets—all these developments make it necessary to reliably regulate access to vehicles and infrastructure. In this context, different aspects matter to different stakeholders. For providers of mobility solutions (such as operators of charging stations or company fleets), transportation and car sharing companies, and government regulators, security is a key issue—in several respects. Access to vehicles must be reserved for authorized persons in order to protect other road users as best as possible. It should therefore be possible to trace at any time who had access to a car, a truck or even a forklift. Vehicles and infrastructure must also be secured against theft and misuse. At the same time, the protection of user data is subject to strict legal requirements. In addition, the solution must enable operators to perform transparent and simple billing. And, last but not least, it must allow for easy adaptation to changing requirements and future technologies. For users, on the other hand, convenient handling is what counts most when it comes to user authentication and access control. The motto here is: simply log on and start immediately—preferably with a smartphone.
At the heart of a modern system for user authentication and access control for mobility applications are universal readers that simply make everything possible. Authentication can be done by card. Or you can rely on the communication medium of the future: smartphones that use Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) or Near-Field Communication (NFC). Of course, cards and cell phones can also be used in parallel as an identification medium. You can make the decision individually for each application—or even for each person. And simply change it if necessary.
How can my organization benefit from user authentication and access control?
A solution for every need.
The transportation sector is developing at an increasing pace. Various forces are impacting the market in the process. Climate protection and sustainability are moving the industry just as much as digitization and new mobility concepts and technologies. From today's standpoint, it is impossible to predict where the journey will take us in the future in many areas. This makes it all the more important to implement an overall solution for user authentication and access control that allows maximum flexibility and permits adjustments at any time. We support you with a customized, scalable system that can be designed entirely according to your needs. Start with just a few users or selected applications and add more at a later date. Or go big right away. With a solution that works worldwide. One thing is always true: because the solution is based on universal readers, all types of transponders, such as cards or smartphones, can be used for any application.
So that everything runs smoothly.
User authentication and access control are essential in the mobility sector. That's why you should rely on a tailored solution that meets your individual challenges. Right from the start. So that you are prepared for the future. We have put together a complete package for this purpose: From powerful software and hardware to expert advice and unique support.
