Stolen bicycles are a large problem in many European cities where people are increasingly using their bikes to commute to work and elsewhere. A growing number of people use bicycles not only to stay fit but also to avoid traffic jams and to minimize traveling costs. For many, the bicycle may also be a significant investment.
What had been missing until bpost introduced their solution, was a workforce that could cover large areas in cities to identify the possibly stolen bicycles. The co-operation between bpost and Zetes is a remarkable example of how new technologies can bring added value for traditional postal services and to communities around us.
The RFID system for this traceability solution required a special UHF RFID tag: a fit–for-purpose on-metal tag was designed and produced using the latest UHF technology. It was a privilege for us to be invited for this project by our partner, Zetes. As a high-end specialty supplier of RFID tags and labels, this project was in our sweet spot: we successfully developed the UHF RFID tag against very demanding requirements. Taking the tag into use is made easy and it has proven itself to provide constant, reliable readings when attached to a metal bike frame. We were happy to see that the system works according to the plan.
UHF RFID tag, Silverline Slim, was specifically chosen for this project due to its performance and the fact that it meets all the key project criteria. In addition to its superior reading distance when in actual use. Every stolen bicycle found with the CycloSafe solution will not only save someone’s day but will also increase the awareness of the benefits of RFID”.
