A common procedure car owners experience when they enter an establishment is to pass through a parking barrier, and a usual scenario is either the driver taps a RFID card for the barrier to open or a building staff manually opens it.
But as the technology advances, more ways have been developed to create a more convenient parking experience — the use of UHF Products.
WHAT IS UHF?
UHF stands for Ultra High Frequency — a frequency band of a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) System widely used to transmit data. In the case of parking management, it is used to automatically open or lift parking barriers; owing to its wavelength that can be read from a distance of up to 10 meters or more.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An RFID System requires a tag and a reader. The UHF Tag stores, processes, and transmits a specific serial number for one specific object; in this case, a vehicle.
The UHF Reader sends its own signal in which the tag responds with the information it carries and is then transmitted to the access control management software. The parking barrier will then be lifted upon valid recognition.
