A world of rfid solutions

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is increasingly used by Governments, enforcement agencies and private sector operators to enhance the policing of roads, identifying and monitoring criminal activity and in counter terrorism.

While ANPR cameras and supporting technology have improved significantly in recent years, they rely completely on licence plate accuracy. Yet licence plate fraud and the cloning of vehicle identity by changing plates or altering characters is on the increase, seriously impacting ANPR effectiveness.

A highly secure method of vehicle identification uses long range Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) fitted to, or embedded within, the licence plate.

A unique identifier is transmitted from the RFID tag which is compared with what the ANPR camera is seeing. An alert is created where there is a mismatch or no RFID is present. This can then trigger a response either for an enforcement team at the location or a follow up response from the back-office.

Combined ANPR and RFID technology from e-Plate provides the most secure and validated vehicle identification system.

Various elements of the system are patented or subject to patent applications.

License Plates

Tagging the vehicle – this can be the number plate (front or rear, or both) or the windscreen (front or rear). e-Plate has a product for both  plus options in the case of plastic or embossed metal number plates. No modifications to the plate are required. Reading the ID – e-Plate readers are compact and can be fixed by the roadside unattended), mobile or handheld by a foot patrol.  Line of sight not required. Mobilising the data – e-Plate employs the i-Anywhere Platform by Sybase, the world’s largest software enterprise company, to get vehicle data to the point of action.


For maximum security, the active e-Plate tag is broadcast-only and is programmed
once only with the vehicle ID (registration characters, VIN no, or any other chosen
identifier). The secure ID is broadcast from the reader to a database containing
all authorised vehicle data
