UHF RFID Tags Enabled for Easy and Remote Identification of Stolen Bikes
CycloSafe, was developed around a clever idea to equip mailmen of bpost with mobile reader devices to track and locate lost bicycles. The solution uses passive UHF (ultra-high frequency) RFID technology with 2 Confidex Silverline Slim RFID tags installed on the frame of the bike to enable easy and remote identification of the stolen or misplaced bicycle. 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.
