Can RFID Monitor Petrol Lifting?

Posted By RFID Journal, 04.29.2013

I'm searching for a solution for monitoring petrol lifting from depot to filling station, in order to prevent smuggling and hoarding. Is this possible?

Viridis, a Toronto-based provider of vehicle-fuel dispensing systems, has developed a system that works for compressed natural gas. The system comprises Texas Instruments' passive low-frequency (LF) ISO 11785-compliant tags and interrogators, a customized reader antenna designed into the fuel-dispensing nozzle assembly, and specialized software to manage tag data. The RFID tag is attached near the vehicle's fueling valve, using a strong epoxy. Viridis software collects that tag data and controls the dispenser, so that it will only begin dispensing fuel when a valid RFID tag is read (see RFID to Ensure Safe Refueling of Natural Gas Vehicles).

I can recommend a few companies that might be able to assist you in developing a similar system.
