Two of Germany’s leading developers of vehicle identification technology, Kathrein and Tönnjes, have used a racetrack to test and demonstrate the effectiveness of their UHF RFID (radio frequency identification) tag reads at speeds over 140mph (220km/h).

Many traffic monitoring applications such as electronic vehicle registration (EVR), Electronic toll collection (ETC), automated vehicle identification (AVI) or intelligent transportation systems (ITS), require highly accurate identification at the highest possible speeds. These systems also require that the communication between a reader and a transponder, as well as between a reader and a back-end system achieve the highest level of security. Internet of Things (IoT) and RFID technology developer Kathrein Solutions, in partnership with secure vehicle identification system supplier Tönnjes, and chipset manufacturer NXP Semiconductors, have developed and demonstrated an end-to-end high-security solution for the optimal detection of vehicles in multi-lane free flow (MLFF) tolling situations.
