Decades ago the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) was implemented on each vehicle manufactured in order to track the vehicle through manufacturing, quality control, adding options and customizations and then later on tracking the VIN to the dealerships and finally to the end user. Since it started in the mid 50's - by the 80's it was standardized in the US to be 17 digits for all vehicles in the USA.
While this concept is excellent for managing vehicles for warranty work, repair work, accident repairs, recall notifications, there has been little effort placed on making the process more manageable to use the VIN number easily.
Originally all VIN numbers were manually read by a person who wrote the huge number down on a piece of paper. Then bar coded VIN numbers became popular and people would take bar code scanners and scan the VIN bar code to get the vehicle ID number at the service centers, dealerships, container ports, etc.
Today if you want to be ahead of the game, provide enhanced customer service and support and be able to "See" what vehicles are on a dealership lot, what is coming into the lot, what is going off the lot - if you don't hire a bunch of people to manually track this you need the SkyRFID active tag solution!
Starting with the manufacturing process vehicles can be equipped with Sky 433 active tags for long range tracking 500 to 1000 meters or more! (1500 to 3000 feet) with a single antenna.
Then you can add more reader antenna combinations and zone the lots or even triangulate so that you know where each vehicle is at any time in real time from any computer screen that you can access.
Sky partners provide a graphical user interface so that you can visually detail your facility and its departments, parking spaces, etc. and then with Sky 433 hardware you can track vehicles coming into the lot and going off the lot at any time.
If by chance someone tries to steal a vehicle then you can get an automated SMS message as it is happening and alert the authorities right away not hours later.
Yes the tags are small, relatively inexpensive and last for 5 years without replacing which in most places is enough to manage the entire warranty process.
If you dont like the 433 really long distance offerings from the Sky we can also provide an alternate 916 MHz for shorter read distance at similar pricing.
