Modeling of an RFID Technology as a Reporting Mechanism in Vehicle Tracking System
Integrated vehicle tracking research has been on the rise as both public and private sectors use the facility in acquiring real time management information to enhance their business processes. It is predominantly used for monitoring and tracking but may not be able to report incidents. The research proposes a design to effectively communicate from the vehicle any incident which may happen on a highway. The design involves combined wireless technology using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Global System for mobile Communication (GSM), and Global Position Satellite (GPS). It is based on the use of RFID as a communication tool from the driver of a vehicle to a local database server. This design termed Transport Highway Integrated Security System (THISS) will bridge the gap in the combined wireless technology by providing access to the driver with a key tagged RFID to help transmit prioritized signal via an
in-the-vehicle unit to communicate the real time location of an incident.
