  • (1888PressRelease) January 16, 2018 - Delmenhorst - Tönnjes E.A.S.T. has released a short film on YouTube to present its pioneering IDePLATE technology for automated vehicle identification.

    There are over one billion cars in the world – and this figure is only set to increase in the future, meaning reliable identification and verification systems are required more than ever. However, automated traffic monitoring requires clear and precise vehicle identification. Tönnjes E.A.S.T. offers an efficient and innovative solution with its electronic IDePLATE, combining forgery-proof licence plates with RFID technology. The number plate contains a chip with an encrypted identification number. Authorised readers are only held by the responsible authorities, enabling them to link numbers with owner data. “We give each vehicle an individual and electronically retrievable number – just like a passport for your car”, explains Dietmar Mönning, the company’s Managing Director.

    The IDePLATE performs even better with the RFID windscreen sticker, IDeSTIX, which also contains a chip and acts as a vehicle’s ‘third licence plate’. “The reader will immediately detect whether a vehicle is carrying the wrong number plates”, says Mönning. The need for action in this area is underlined by the figures: According to the insurance company, ARAG Versicherungen, around 160,000 number plates are stolen every year in Germany. The IDePLATE system does more than just protect against theft and misuse; it offers a whole range of applications. The IDePLATE system provides the basis for the automation of numerous processes, including access and border controls, standardised toll systems and speed measurements. Visual inspections are still the method of choice in Germany, but Mönning describes this as “outdated and highly prone to errors, which is why the authorities should discuss a safer and more efficient solution”. The system developed by Tönnjes E.A.S.T. is already being used in Europe and the rest of the world, such as in Kenya and Peru.
