German license plate technology on the advance

Tönnjes E.A.S.T. presents motor vehicle detection systems at Intertraffic Amsterdam

Bremen, March 2016. From 5th to 8th April, the Germany company J. H. Tönnjes E.A.S.T. presents its tried and tested detection systems for vehicles at the Intertraffic Amsterdam. In other European countries and at international level, vehicle identification based on RFID technology (radio-frequency identification) is already in use. According to the company’s own information, it is one of the market leaders with its solutions. Core piece is a passive chip integrated in the license plate. In Amsterdam, the company presents technical details and corresponding application examples to a broad specialised public.

At present, the forces of the Dutch army are gaining practical experience with an IDePlate, a license plate with integrated chip. The inspector of the Royal Dutch Land Forces, Lieutenant-General Mart de Kruif, praises the project as ground-breaking. Test area is one of the largest military training areas in the Netherlands. In other countries, the RFID technology for motor vehicle detection is in the testing phase or, like in Peru, is already being used nationwide. In Europe, apart from The Netherlands, Turkey and Latvia are among the most progressive. According to the Managing Directors Olaf Renz and Dietmar Mönning, there are also enquiries from Germany. “The interest, especially from large companies from the automotive and logistics industry to optimise the security of their fleets and the company area, is great. Easy and efficient solutions, on the other hand, are rare. With the IDePlate including manipulation-proof software, we offer a fully developed alternative for many application areas”, explains Olaf Renz.

The Intertraffic in Amsterdam is the world’s largest innovation platform for mobility solutions. More than 800 exhibitors from over 40 countries present their products and services all around the traffic and transport industry.
