Schreiner PrinTrust Intros RFID Smart-Parking Solution

Schreiner PrinTrust has announced that APCOA Parking has implemented its ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF solution. APCOA, a European parking facility manager, is using this digital platform for smart parking in 200 parking garages throughout Germany. The service includes contactless entry and exit, automatic billing and app-based supporting services.

When a user approaches a parking garage barrier in his or her car, the barrier will automatically open via the wireless technology of the RFID chip in the label, and the system will then debit the parking fee using that individual's stored credit card details. Users have the option of either permanently applying the RFID label to the inside of a windshield or using it on a mobile carrier card.

APCOA had sought an RFID solution tailored to this specific use case. In order to receive all components, including the carrier card and client mailer, from a one-stop-shop, APCOA wanted to implement the project with a single provider. The company ultimately selected Schreiner PrinTrust, a supplier of RFID-based solutions for parking applications.

The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF was specifically developed for use in automatic vehicle identification and for mailing to clients. It is resistant against heat and sunlight, the company reports, which helps to ensure a long life on the inside of windshields. The chip is designed to provide good performance in all weather conditions.

With invisibly integrated, full-surface light protection, the chip can remain fully functional even when exposed to direct sunlight, the company reports. Data security is ensured as well. A user's personal details are not stored on the chip itself; rather, via an allocated individual unique ID, they are securely deposited in the back end of a database. The ((rfid))-Windshield Label Global UHF is produced in a high-security environment certified according to the ISO 14298 und NASPO Security Printing standards at Schreiner Group's facility in Oberschleissheim.
