In the Philippines, cardboard signs and self-painted license plates have dominated the street landscape since 2013. Private toll providers already exist locally, but there is no national system. For the authorities, this situation became unbearable. The government therefore sought – in addition to basic vehicle registration – to find ways of identifying vehicles while driving in order to establish automated billing models for the road. A further requirement was that motorized two-wheeler must also be automatically identifiable from all directions.
- Cost saving and efficiency increase
- Introduction of a uniform vehicle registration system
- Implementation of a comprehensive, automatic vehicle identification system
The Ministry of Transport decided to additionally use UHF RFID labels in the process of issuing millions of new license plates. In a first step, a total of 3.25 million aluminum license plates and around 2.5 million self-adhesive UHF RFID labels with holographic security features will be delivered.
Special headlight labels will be used for the identification of motorcycles. By attaching the labels from the outside, the requirements for robustness are more extensive. The RFID labels must be able to withstand UV radiation, stone chipping and changing weather conditions.
Labels are security products that are subject to state sovereignty. Therefore, semi-finished products are delivered and only personalized on-site, for example by printing the holograms and encoding the RFID chips. Attempts at fraud are made more difficult because the UHF RFID tags cannot be removed from windscreens or lamp glass without being destroyed. This means that it is possible to prove beyond doubt that a license plate does not belong to a vehicle.
In addition to uniform vehicle registration with government-issued license plates, RFID technology is the basis for future automatic billing models for the use of toll roads. At the same time, the work of the police and registration authorities will be facilitated. Further automated parking and access solutions can be integrated.
If ICs of the latest generation are used in the UHF RFID tags, vehicles in flowing traffic can be identified perfectly at speeds of up to 250 kilometers per hour. If the encryption features are activated, detection up to a speed of around 200 kilometers per hour is 100 percent guaranteed.
