The reason behind the name change is that over the past few years Nedap AVI (Automatic Vehicle Identification) has developed energetically and has expanded its portfolio. From specialist in long-range RFID solutions for vehicle and driver identification to a solution provider with a wider portfolio. This portfolio now also includes long-range identification of people in and around buildings, wireless vehicle detection sensors for on-street parking guidance and remote management of vehicle entrance points to restricted city zones.
Ruben Wegman, CEO of Nedap: “In the past few years, the product portfolio of Nedap Identification Systems has expanded rapidly. The group has been able to bring new relevant technologies to the industries of security, traffic and parking. Our long range RFID readers can be used indoors and outdoors for both vehicles and people. Current technological development enable access control solutions that combine security with high levels of convenience. This is the right moment to change our name and to prepare ourselves for future market demands. Along with the announcement of the new name, a new corporate design will be introduced.”
Nedap also announces a new activity that will be part of Nedap Identification Systems: Nedap Mobility Solutions. “This activity will bring together all of our solutions to help cities become smart about mobility. Our wireless parking detection system SENSIT as well as our advanced solution for vehicular city access control will be part of this activity. In 2013 Nedap saw the breakthrough for SENSIT. The wireless parking sensor market is a very promising one and so far we have already deployed the platform in several cities around the world. We expect that this is only the beginning. The city access control system so far has been mostly deployed in Dutch cities. Based on requests from foreign cities and the international interest in mobility solutions for cities, we came to the conclusion that now is the time to roll out this solution internationally,” says Maarten Mijwaart, business unit manager of Nedap Identification Systems.
