LEGIC and its newest license partner, Nedap AVI (automatic vehicle identification), will be offering secure long-range identification in the Netherlands designed to monitor and control vehicle and driver-related activities. Nedap’s TRANSIT system in conjunction with the contactless LEGIC Combi-Booster–an in-vehicle mounted device–will transmit both secured LEGIC smart card data and an embedded vehicle ID simultaneously.
LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, the world’s leading supplier of secure contactless smart card technology, has announced the appointment of Nedap AVI as its latest licence partner in the Netherlands.
Nedap AVI is a specialist in vehicle identification systems offering the ultimate in fast and secure long-range identification in order to monitor and control vehicle and driver related activities. It has an established reputation for supplying and developing highly sophisticated vehicle access solutions worldwide.
The company’s newest innovation is an automatic vehicle identification (AVI) system using LEGIC ID technology. Nedap’s TRANSIT system working with the contactless LEGIC advant based Combi-Booster, which is an in-vehicle mounted device, transmits both secured LEGIC smart card data and an embedded vehicle ID simultaneously.
The system provides reliable identification of vehicles from up to 10 meters (33 feet) at high speed in typical access control applications. It can be configured to provide hands-free vehicle access to gated and other highly secured areas, without the need for the vehicle to come to a stop. Benefits include the ability to substantially improve the level of security and operational efficiency while controlling access for vehicles which are commonly driven by many different drivers (e. g. busses, test cars, forklifts, police cars, etc.). The system can also be used for applications including automated parking payment, airport and seaport access control, fleet-management, toll collections and more.
Jan R. Hofman, Regional Sales Manager Automatic Vehicle Identification for NEDAP AVI said: “We are the first licence partner to offer long range vehicle identification based on LEGIC technology. The development is based on our experience in various market segments and the typical requirements for applications such as parking, access control and fleet management. Our TRANSIT and Combi-Booster system substantially improves the levels of security and convenience for customers who selected LEGIC technology because of their need for high standards and requirements.”
Klaus U. Klosa, Managing Director at LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, is pleased with the new development of the NEDAP Combi-Booster based on contactless LEGIC technology. “We are proud to have an experienced company like NEDAP, with innovative ideas, as our new licence partner. NEDAP AVI is a market leader in long range vehicle identification and has a worldwide customer base. This has advantages for all our new and existing customers and will revolutionize applications with vehicle and driver identification needs in high security areas and we look forward to further developing our close working partnership.” Pictures
