UHF RFID technologies enable long-distance, secure vehicle access to restricted car parks
Latest-generation long-range UHF RFID technology has been deployed at a secure parking area at Russia’s Moscow International Business Center (MIBC) that is used by both government and private-sector employees, a recent news report has revealed. The aim of the project is to enable faster entry, without the risk of hacking due to untraceable technology.
The MIBC, a commercial development first conceived in 1992, is still under development.
Initially, it was a riverfront industrial zone and a rock quarry populated by closed factories and abandoned buildings. Now, following revitalization, between 250,000 and 300,000 people work and/or live in the area, which features skyscrapers for offices, residences, stores and entertainment venues.
Construction for the tallest skyscraper, known as One Tower, began this year; once it’s finished, the structure will stand 403.5 meters (1,324 feet) in height, making it one of the tallest buildings in Europe.
After unsuccessfully trialling ANPR technology and MiFARE readers, the organization managing the parking area has decided to deploy the UHF system, which comes with security features intended to prevent the hacking of data.
The benefit of UHF transmissions is that the long range enables gate readers to authenticate a driver before a vehicle comes to a complete stop; however, that long range also allows the potential for hacking from a nearby reader device, but this solution is mitigated by using a specialist chip in untraceable mode.
In order to be able to use the new technology, each vehicle must have a special tag installed, encoded with a unique ID linked in the software to a specific individual authorized to access the parking lot.
