Impinj Partners with Digilogics to Bring High Performance RFID Solutions to Mexican Government Agency, Registro Publico Vehicular
Impinj Speedway Revolution reader certified for purchase by state and local government agencies to support ambitious electronic vehicle registration initiative
April 14, 2010 - Seattle, WA
Leading UHF Gen 2 radio frequency identification (RFID) technology provider Impinj, Inc. and Mexico-based label stock converter Digilogics S.A. de C.V. today announced that the government of Mexico has certified Impinj’s Speedway Revolution reader for purchase by state agencies and the automotive industry in compliance with the electronic vehicle registration initiative of the country’s public vehicle registry, Registro Publico Vehicular (REPUVE). All cars, trucks, buses and other public vehicles as well as auto manufacturers and importers, must participate in the countrywide vehicle identification program.
Selected by Digilogics for its outstanding performance and reliability, the Speedway Revolution reader, featuring patented AutopilotTM technology, will encode required data onto REPUVE sanctioned Gen 2 tags which the initiative requires on all new vehicles by July 2010. In addition, Digilogics is developing software to exploit the unique capabilities of the Speedway Revolution reader to allow use beyond the REPUVE program, including in warehouse management systems (WMS) and other critical business processes.
“Many potential customers contacted Digilogics because they were not satisfied with the quality and performance of currently available RFID reader products,” said Luca Pastorello, partner at Digilogics. “Impinj’s Speedway Revolution delivered the performance and reliability necessary for the demanding requirements of this project across the entire spectrum of users, including automotive manufacturers, state data and verifying centers and installations on roads and motorways.”
“We are excited to be working with Digilogics on the REPUVE project,” said Daniel Bowman, senior marketing manager at Impinj. “Digilogics’ unique RFID expertise, market presence and focus on government solutions will provide an excellent support structure in the deployment of this initiative.“
