Lock and Key Combination -
The ever increasing need for a simple way to track the
driver credential and potentially the vehicle identification
as a lock and key combination, has paved the way for a
new philosophy which dictates that a vehicle can never
be left with an active AVI access credential present unless
occupied by an authorised driver.
A driver-based AVI tag is made up of two components:
an in-vehicle card reader/transmitter and a personnel
credential, such as a contactless building access card.
The in-vehicle reader will read the building access card
and “boost” the signal to an external reader at ranges
up to 33 feet (11 metres), which will allow plenty of time
for the back-end security controller to activate the barrier
or gate opening prior to the time the vehicle arrives.
The Booster device will, in effect, act as the lock and the
building access card as the key. In some cases, the booster
will contain its own embedded vehicle ID, giving the backend
the ability to immediately match the right driver with
the right vehicle.
No Trojan Horses -
Removal of the driver ID is ensured as this credential is
required for building access once the driver leaves his
vehicle, leaving only the booster in the vehicle, which in
itself cannot activate the barrier or gate opening. This is
why unauthorised people cannot use an autorised car as
a “Trojan horse”.
