This article describes an automated vehicle identification project deployed at the headquarters of Eastman Kodak Co., in Rochester, New York. The project also had to be compatible with the company's new employee access control cards. Two automatic vehicle identification (AVI) tags were decided upon: a dual-ID tag that could be used whenever a vehicle was required to pass through a secure perimeter, and a single-ID tag that would make it possible to have long-distance reads of the AVI tags in facilities such as parking garages. All tags can be read by the same reader and the reading system can be programmed to grant access to either type of tag. The system allows quick identification of exceptions and aberrations related to vehicle access. It was also possible to seamlessly integrate the new employee ID badges with the vehicle transmitter. The long range of the sensors allows vehicles to activate gates and doors far enough in advance to permit cars to pass through without stopping.
