TAG PERFORMANCE TESTING
How CISC Xplorer enables to design high performance vehicle licence plates
RFID licence plates for cars and trucks offer great benefits for fast, secure and reliant vehicle identification, access management, road tolling and alike. However, the material of the plate, its environment and the fast speed of the vehicles (e.g. road tolling) require design optimisation of the RFID tag.
When LicenSys, a long established expert for licence plates in Australia and New Zealand, started to experiment with RFID on licence plates, they soon realized that they are in need of expert equipment for RFID testing. To stop the guesswork, LicenSys looked for the CISC’s RFID testing solution and 20 years of RFID expertise to be able to handle all specific performance requirements of licence plates with RFID.
“RFID Xplorer’s easy to use GUI with advanced features helps us ensure our tag’s performance, read range and capabilities”, says Gabriel Seitz, Senior Systems Application Engineer. “It also has an easy to use RF Sniffer that allows us to dive into the details and debug. We have also used API for extensive automated testing which helped us to seamlessly make the transition from lab testing to production testing.”
TAKE THE GUESSWORK OUT OF THE PROJECT
Being able to test the performance of the RFID licence plate is a key to understand, control and improve the RFID licence plate. Equally important is to understand the communication between the RFID licence plate and the RFID reader. With the CISC Sniffer, the proctol and the communication of the RFID system can be fully analyzed and in the next step actions can be derived for the optimization of the tag design.
DESIGN SECURE TAGS WITH TESTS ON CRYPTO COMMANDS
RFID licence plates for vehicle identification, road tolling and access management have specific security requirements. The holistic RFID testing solution of CISC enables not only to test any metric of the RFID systems, it also allows to test crypto commands and vary the different parameters within the standard like modulation, timing and even user-defined command sequences and errors. Allowing read range measurements when using encrypted communication with ISO/IEC 29167-10 AES-128 crypto suite leads to a very accurate pre-evaluation of the system performance.
