Automatic Vehicle Identification Systems
The growth of vehicle populations worldwide along with overwhelming amounts of vehicle data has created a demand for automated, highly secure, and highly reliable Automatic Vehicle Identification Systems (AVIS). Local, state, and national governments recognize the importance of implementing a more advanced system in order to increase safety and security, ensure regulatory compliance, and recover lost revenue.
Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR), Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), Border Control, Parking and Access Control, and Fuel Monitoring and Control are among the AVIS applications to increase efficiency, automate enforcement, and streamline vehicle security.
Automatic Vehicle Identification Features and Benefits
Secure: System provides a fool-proof way to prevent high-cost cases of fuel theft.
Fast: With no manual data entry needed by drivers, vehicles can pull-up, fill up and go.
Accurate: Real-time data capture, including vehicle identification, optional driver verification and optional mileage, is 100% correct every time.
No Cards: System doesn’t require activation devices such as cards, which are easily lost, to authorize fueling.
· Capture accurate vehicle identification data every time without driver input
· Optionally capture vehicle mileage and other vehicle data
· Optionally capture driver identification at island terminal or by presenting a key fob at the RFN
· Self-destructing tags cannot be removed from vehicle without deactivation from system
· Radio Frequency Nozzle’s (RFN) wireless transceiver is mounted to nozzle
· RFN reads passive vehicle tag and transmits information to the Vehicle Identification System
· LED lights on wireless transceiver indicate to driver that system is processing vehicle information and authorizing fueling
· Optional Vehicle Identification Device (VID) picks up vehicle mileage via the GPS Odometer Sender (GOS) and collects vehicle mileage and diagnostic data via an OBD connection
· Vehicle Identification System (VIS) traffics data with the RFN and VID while integrated with the FSC3000™ Fuel Site Controller
· VIS is compatible with Phoenix™ fuel management software
· Wireless transceiver on nozzle has a one-year battery life
· System will not allow fuel to be dispensed into any vehicle that is not equipped with a passive vehicle tag
· Passive Vehicle Tag adapts to any vehicle to easily mount around vehicle’s fill pipe
· Installation of Passive Vehicle Tags is fast and easy
· Non-destructing tags can be transferred to a new vehicle
· Wireless transceiver adapts to most nozzle types
How KocoData’s AVI Technology Works
· KocoData's Automatic Vehicle Identification solution is connected to KocoData's FSC3000™ Fuel Site Controller, which controls the fuel dispensers onsite.
· When the nozzle is removed from the dispenser the handle lift is detected and signals the Vehicle Identification System (VIS) to activate the Radio Frequency Nozzle (RFN).
· Next, the RFN seeks to locate the Passive Vehicle Tag installed on the vehicle fill pipe.
When the RFN locates the Passive Vehicle Tag it transmits back to the VIS, reporting the vehicle’s tag number.
The VIS optionally queries the Vehicle Identification Device to get the odometer or engine hours reading.
KocoData's AVI application combines the odometer/engine hours reading and optional driver’s data captured through a key fob.
