Global access control and security system supplier, GPP Perimeter Protection AB, was selected recently to deliver an automatic vehicle identification (AVI) system for bus transportation services provider, Veolia, in Hurva, Skåne, Sweden. Bengt Wedin, of Veolia, introduced it, saying: "This new system, for protecting access of our lanes from unauthorized vehicles, works perfectly." System supplier GPP Perimeter Protection AB has also been satisfied with Idesco's products. "Idesco's wireless devices made this application very easy to install", recalled Mathias Torstensson from GPP Perimeter Protection.
GPP Perimeter Protection AB already knew Idesco's products were robustly reliable in harsh and inclement conditions, including exposure to extremes of frost, dust and moisture. Veolia had requested a reliable stand-alone bus identification system to control motorway access of their gated private motorway ramp, to dispense with drivers needing to disembark to open the gate.
Veolia's resultant new AVI system, built with Idesco products, not only saves time but reduces fuel costs by allowing windshield-tagged buses to transit gates without stopping. It's also safer and much more convenient for their drivers. Idesco's fast-installing and wireless plug-n-play package was comprised of EPC readers, passive (unpowered) tags, an ICU reader receiver and a DCU gate controller. "This system for expediting our vehicles not only saves us time but, even better, serves the environment by reducing fuel consumption. Consequently, the overall system solution GPP Perimeter Protection AB developed and deployed using Idesco readers and controllers has been great - we are very pleased," concludes Bengt Wedin from Veolia.
