In 2013, the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs is planning to test the integration of RFID-tags in the number of cars. This is reported in the Ministry of Industry and Trade. Each number plate will introduce a special chip that will store not only information about the car (color, model, engine number), and details about its owner. This project will be part of the Moscow program "Smart City".
On the principles of the future system said Vladimir Kalinin, head of the department otdelanachalnik Microsystem of St. Petersburg "
The first "demonstrations" will be held in late May of this year, said Kalinin. The company will present the new "smart" room Minister of Internal Affairs of Russia Rashid Nurgaliyev. After that, the minister will discuss with the participants the way for its further development.
About how innovation can affect ordinary citizens, have told the All-Russian Society of motorists (BOA). BOA chief analyst Andrew Charles expects positive changes in accounting and moving vehicles. For example, you will be able to quickly obtain detailed information about the car — including the history of the machine and its units that now is not be verified by the traffic police. It will be possible to track vehicles from abroad on their importation into the country. The only problem is that the hardware is necessary to introduce in Russia. If this is done, the innovation in clear favor, says Andrew Charles.
Abroad already have cases of use of RFID-technology of car plates. They are used in many countries to deal with offenders, traffic tracking, combat congestion and tracking stolen vehicles. In Malaysia, the mandatory chipping service was introduced in 2007. Since then, Kuala Lumpur has a whole infrastructure reading RFID. In addition to the automatic reader at many traffic lights and police posts were set up special patrol crews outfitted with equipment tracking and identification. This means that the police can remotely check any vehicle on the consistency of information from RFID-tag real parameters of the machine.
The memory of such a label stores all the important information about the car, starting with the color, and the last information about the owner. And the absence of a signal from the tag — a definite cause for detention. In fact, in Malaysia, created an analogue of 3M-GM, introduced in the U.S. in the 90s — they were stickers with a unique number, which does not protect the vehicle, but their absence was an occasion for a thorough inspection of the car.
