3M RFID Technology Applications
Automatic Vehicle identification is descriptive of an integrated, total solution utilizing radio frequency identification (RFID)
technology to electronically identify vehicles and validate the identity, status and authenticity of vehicle data for a specific
application. AVI technology has become one of the most widely used applications of RFID technology globally. AVI allows
parking operators, gated communities, fleet operators, state and
local agencies and airports to identify a vehicle for revenue
collection or simple and secure access control.
3M is uniquely positioned to optimize your Automatic Vehicle Identification system.
3M products are built on more than 15 years of RF domain expertise addressing multiple frequencies (LF/HF/UHF), multiple protocols and are compliant with global standards offering customers a wide range of RFID options aimed to address the world's automatic identification applications for today - and beyond.
3M is an industry-leading, vertically integrated manufacturer of antennas, inlays and tags for specialized, passive RFID applications. We bring together a proven reader platform, customized tags and services, designed to work together to provide solutions focused on driving performance. 3M provides complete end-to-end solutions to new and current customers, targeting key transportation markets worldwide.
3M RFID technology's affordable solutions use Open Standard Technology (ISO certified), and the Multi-Protocol Reader, which reads the top six transponder technology types in the U.S., allowing you to choose which technologies you access.
The 3M RFID solution also uses affordable sticker tags (no need for batteries) rather than expensive active transponders. From barrier-based to open highway application, 3M readers provides the highest performance, accuracy and reliability available.
At the heart of 3M's Automatic Plate Reading Identification solution is the transponder or "tag", a device that is placed on a motorist's windshield to identify the vehicle. The tag communicates through 3M's antenna to a reader controller card which identifies the tag and transfers the information to the host management system. The transponder can be read by the reader with an accuracy level in excess of 99.6% at vehicle speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.
