One Tap Can Save Lives

The integration of NFC RFID transponders in leather suits. Why?

An NFC tag in leather suits supports first responders at the scene of an accident.

The scooter community is networked worldwide. One of the most successful drivers from Germany is Kevin Pohl from Cologne. His career began in 2008 on the world-famous Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. He started there at the International German Scooter Championship, the forerunner of today's European Scooter Trophy.

Kevin Pohl is German Scooter Champion, entrepreneur and Deputy RFID Production Manager at Avery Dennison. Anyone who gets into conversation with him is not bored. Racing has been part of his everyday life for over 13 years. In 2019, Pohl, who was born in Cologne, turned this sporting talent into a business idea: The integration of NFC RFID transponders in leather suits. Why? NFC transponders store personal data that can provide vital information in the event of an accident. The goal: To increase road and race-track safety.

In an interview with RFID & Wireless IoT Global, Pohl explains which NFC transponders he chose for this purpose and how the small market is reacting to the tagged leather suits on offer.
