Positive vehicle identification
The RAIN 1 based Positive Vehicle Identification (PVI) systems include RAIN license plates and RAIN windscreen labels and three types of readers. The RAIN license plates use a passive RFID tag as an integral part of the plate. The RAIN windscreen label includes a passive tag, barcode, holographic and tamper-resistant security features.
Reader types; an overhead reader, a hand-held reader, and a smart in-road sensor (the research project). The smart in-road sensor will contain radar, vibration, shock and emissions sensors to classify and detect a vehicle without a tag. This data can be integrated with current imaging technologies.
1 The RAIN technologies are standardised as ISO/IEC 18000-63 and ISO/IEC 29167
The fleetVALID™ concept may assist with:
- Congestion Management (Road planning, building and operation)
- Pollution Management
- Road Safety
- Revenue Raising (Road User Charging, Tolling, Congestion Charging…)
- Registration and Permit Compliance
The concept uses a fully secure and interoperable data standard (ISO/IEC 20248) which ensures seamless integration with other Intelligent Transport and Internet of Things systems, fully supporting safe and efficient transport networks.
