Timekeeping for Sport Events: from Passive UHF to Active RFID
CTO, Race Result
A marathon with more than 40,000 participants and reading rates of nearly 100 percent? The UHF RFID solution for time measurement by Race Result makes it possible. Since no suitable antenna existed on the market, the company developed a foldable RFID ground antenna. Different environments present different challenges: While passive UHF RFID solutions are mainly used for local sport events, active RFID is deployed in especially challenging events such as the Olympic Games.
Aarhus is Paving the Path to a Smart City
Business Solutions Manager, ID-Advice
In 2015, the Danish city of Aarhus equipped two intersections with an RFID-controlled application for traffic optimization. If the traffic situation allows it, bicycles equipped with RFID tags automatically get a green light when passing a reader next to the bicycle lane. In 2017, the city and the system integrator plan an extensive roll-out of the solution in Aarhus – and all over the world. In addition, the city is converting an entire sector into a testing ground for innovative smart city solutions.

How Different Smartcard Systems Can Work Together on one Medium
Marketing & Sales Director, AEG ID
Users of hybrid systems or all in one solutions for time logging, access control or payment face the same major challenge: fluctuations in card performance. AEG Identifikationssysteme plans to solve the challenge with a new card geometry for smart cards and key fobs. The company offers both end users as well as system integrators, from industry to logistics to healthcare, customised engineering. All card components are adapted to the respective requirements together with the customer.
Six Universities in Berlin, 110,000 Students, One Card
Dr. Tamás Molnár
Head of Service Centre Campuscard Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Buy meals in the canteen, take the train, rent books – all with one single card: the Berlin CampusCard is a joint project of six major colleges that will issue RFID ID cards to all 110,000 students in the university network until mid 2018. The Berlin universities need reliable printing technology for fully automated card issuance and update systems. The used thermo-rewrite printers by Evolis offer a flexible updating of validity and other information directly on the card.
Register Court in Warsaw Tracks More Than Half a Million Documents With UHF RFID
Managing Director, DG Studio
In the archive of the Registration Court in Warsaw, more than 500.000 paper files are tagged with RAIN RFID labels. Smart shelfs are the digitalised repository for over 10.000 files. Employees are also using mobile RFID readers for finding particular files. Automatic RFID gates register each tagged file taken and returned in trolleys with up to 150 files per unit.
Vancouver Metropolian Transit: Hands-Free Fare RFID Gates for People with Disabilities
President, RFID Canada
Passengers with disabilities will be given a choice of RFID tags on lanyards that will trigger the opening of the fare gates, which today only work with the tap and go payment card system. As a customer’s wheelchair approaches the designated fare gate at one of the stations the RF signal is picked up at a pre-defined distance by an UHF RFID reader. This is all accomplished without making any physical modification to the fare gates themselves. Future enhancements possibilities include real-time data analytics and visualization for business decision support.
No Chance for Manipulation! Smart Wireless Perimeter Security for Prisons, Chemical Parks and More
Projektleiter des PerimeterLocator, Novatec Sicherheit und Logistik
RFID-based sensors protect fences against penetration or overpassing and is used for fence monitoring and protection of open air areas. Specially designed wireless acceleration sensors recognize vibration patterns on the fence and can tell whether someone is climbing over the fence, cutting through it, or whether environmental influences such as wind blows or heavy rain are acting on it. The sensors are 'taught' by the fence fields communicating their vibration patterns. Even mobile goods such as containers, lattice boxes or vehicles can be equipped with a sensor and thus protected.
