A new solution for vehicle and driver access identification

Nortech introduce driver ID tags

People and vehicle access control specialist Nortech are now offering long-range vehicle and driver identification tags to grant seamless access to approaching vehicles.

They are now offering long-range vehicle and driver identification tags to grant seamless access to approaching vehicles. Their design is to accompany the popular TRANSIT reader range from Nedap, the tags are ideal for use in staff car parks, for priority vehicle control, industrial site access control, fleet and parking management.

Key features enable long range driver based identification (of up to 10m), including simultaneous driver and vehicle identification, easy windshield mounting with suction pads and maximum perimeter security.

Where and why is it used?

Driver based ID systems, a building access card and in-vehicle booster ensure that a vehicle can never gain access to a secured area unless occupied by an authorised driver. Currently typical booster applications are found in high secured areas like airports, seaports, military bases, utility companies, corporate and educational campuses, police, fire and other installations where vehicles must be assigned to a specific driver.

The booster is used in combination with a personal access credential and is an easy to integrate solution for vehicle access, eliminating the need to issue new cards.

How does it work?

The booster is placed on the windshield on the inside of a vehicle. When an authorised building access card is inserted into the booster, it is read and then boosted to the external Nedap TRANSIT reader. The TRANSIT reader then transmits the credential ID to any standard back end security panel. If the credential is authorised and access is granted the gate will open automatically. Removal of the driver ID then allows the access card to be used for building access.

Users also have the facility to match up vehicles and drivers, as a separate ID (vehicle ID) can be programmed into the booster on certain models. This ensures the right driver is with the right vehicle.

Why aren’t we more prepared?

The security industry has been quiet on the impact of Brexit so far - it's time we took notice

I find it strange just how quiet the security industry is on the subject of Brexit.  Whether you voted to leave or remain, whether you believe in the PM’s plan or think she is wasting valuable time, Brexit is undoubtably the topic of the moment and will remain so for some time to come.  Yet collectively the security industry remains relatively mute on its potential impact – which could be significant.
