You have to consider the time it takes to install it, as well as the functionality, ease of use and the cost of ownership for the end user.
The installer wants an easy to understand, easy to install solution and the end user just wants it to work flawlessly for many, many years at a low cost. It must be a win-win situation, and this is why TagMaster Long Range Readers are the perfect choice for both parties.
Large logistic centres or industrial compound like ports or freight terminals have strict requirements when it comes to whom can access the area, monitor the whereabouts of the vehicle when in the area, and analyse and direct the traffic flow. TagMaster's RFID Long Distance Readers and ANPR cameras are a very suitable technologies to provide secure access and to monitor and analyse the movements of vehicles or use of resources in large logistic centres.
To secure a successful operation its key to:
- Control secure access to the area
- Monitor and control the whereabouts once the vehicles have entered the compound
- Provide an efficient traffic flow through timely and correct allocation of the vehicles
- Efficient time logging of the vehicles arriving, waiting and leaving the area
Entry access control
All trucks and trailers are identified with TagMaster superior RFID Readers which will read vehicles coming and leaving the area within 14m range. The readers capture secure data from passing tags and authenticates that it is a valid TagMaster tag. The data is forwarded to a software application hosted on a local server. It is also possible to combine RFID Long Range Readers with ANPR cameras (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) to register all in- and outbound traffic.
With TagMaster Long Distance Readers, trucks are monitored and directional information can be provided to the driver, such as what lane, terminal or Ship-to-shore Gantry Crane to go to, all based on trucks being identified entering or moving within the compound. This enables a secure and efficient flow of traffic.
Monitoring traffic flow
Efficient handling of resources are secured with sophisticated camera software which comes with numerous useful analysis tools. Statistics can show the busiest time of the day to help staffing allocation. The software can also report dwell times of incoming trucks, which can be used to optimize the efficiency of traffic, report waiting time and reduce emissions.
