IDePLATE & IDeSTIX in Oirschot

As part of a long-term project on the training and education grounds of the Dutch Ministry of Defense, Tönnjes and Kirpestein presented RFID based solutions for vehicle identification to Lieutenant General Mart de Kruif, commanding officer of the Royal Dutch Army. Military vehicles were equipped with IDePLATEs and IDeSTIXs, license plates and windshield labels with integrated passive RFID chips. Reading units, which are mounted on a gantry, read the information stored on license plates and windshield labels. De Kruif called this solution a real-life technical innovation which provides concrete applications for military purposes.
