Auto Passport RFID
Vehicle Tag Recognition System
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology whereby data encoded in RFID tags or smart labels are captured by a reader via radio waves.
Auto Passport utilizes this technology and brings it to the car wash industry in the form of RFID Tag Recognition. As a pre-paid customer approaches the wash gate, the overhead Auto Passport instantly receives the RFID information from their RFID windshield decal, welcomes the customer, asks if they would like any upgrades, opens the gate, and queues their wash.
So while the Auto Sentry® flex payment terminal is delivering your car wash's personalized presentation, a two-lane Auto Passport system can process more than 30,000 cars in one month.
With RFID technology, we can identify, time-stamp and store information on each vehicle that passes through the wash. And all happens automatically, without user interaction.
Some of the Auto Passport RFID features include:
Auto Passport LPR
License Plate Recognition System
A second system option for automated gate entry is the Auto Passport License Plate Recognition system. Similarly to the RFID Tag Recognition, the License Plate Recognition system automatically identifies and welcomes the pre-paid customer, asks if they would like any upgrades, opens the gate, and queues their wash. However, with this system the customer is electronically identified by their vehicle’s license plate number.
Some of the Auto Passport LPR features include:
Digital Menu Boards
