Neology, NXP Partner on RFID-enabled Traffic-Management, Vehicle ID Systems

Neology, a provider of secure RFID solutions, and NXP Semiconductors demonstrated new traffic-management and vehicle ID systems at an automotive show held this month in Germany.

Neology is introducing its RFID License Plate solution, which features NXP's new Ucode DNA, a passive EPC Gen 2 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID chip that NXP says is the first to provide cryptographic authentication. Unveiled in April 2015 (see NXP Releases IC for Secure Encrypted UHF Reads), the Ucode DNA uses a dynamic password that changes with each read event and requires the verification of every password from a server, in order to prevent eavesdropping and tag cloning. The RFID License Plate solution features theft prevention and law-enforcement notification in case of plate tampering or unauthorized transfer, the company reports. A self-declaration feature for electronic road tolling is also included.

Additionally, Neology is launching its RF In-Car Device that transmits relevant vehicle telemetry data. The compact device plugs into a standard vehicle OBD port via a pass-through connector, and communicates with the outside world using an ISO-18000-6C I2C chip from NXP, according to Neology. Specific applications include fleet management, car rental and traffic congestion management, among others.

The new products are being showcased at the IAA Cars 2015 trade show, which is taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, on Sept. 17-27.
