STAR Systems International Intros New RFID Vehicle Hangtag

STAR Systems International, a provider of RFID hardware, tags and professional services, has announced its new GATRIA vehicle hangtag for parking, access control and other automotive identification applications. According to the company, the hangtag is designed for ease of use, performance, portability and reusability in automatic vehicle identification applications, and can be hung on a vehicle's rear-view mirror to provide RFID detection and identification in a portable, reusable form factor.

GATRIA is designed for applications requiring temporary or portable vehicle identification functionality, STAR Systems explains. The solution is suitable for use in such applications as access control, temporary guest vehicle access, seasonal parking, fleet management, automotive service and repair stations, automotive dealerships and car washes.

Businesses, gated communities, universities, parking garages and other organizations can issue, reclaim or disable the tags needed. With a portable hangtag, credentials can also travel with an individual user rather than being tied to a specific vehicle. The tags can be customized with a company logo or other designs and text, STAR Systems adds.

"GATRIA provides a unique solution for customers looking for a reliable, automated system for short-term or temporary vehicle identification applications," said Bob Karr, STAR Systems International's managing director, in a prepared statement. The hangtags measure 127.4 millimeters by 101.6 millimeters (5 inches by 4 inches) and can be easily installed, removed and stored, the company indicates. The wideband-designed 860 to 960 MHz tags are compliant with the ISO 18000-6C (63) and EPC Gen 2 RFID standards, and also support password authentication.

GATRIA joins STAR Systems' existing line of RFID vehicle-identification solutions. These include the Aries headlamp transponder, the Astria vehicle registration sticker, the LEO license plate tag and the Venus windshield tags. The hangtag is currently available for shipment.
