RFID eliminates overhead wiring for trams
The use of RFID enables a vehicle to detect the location of a charging station in advance or to determine which operating mode it is permitted to drive in. The result is that inner cities free of overhead wires can now become a reality.
HARTING Ha-VIS RFID systems are robust and reliable wireless devices that permit approach detection to a charging station with positioning accuracy of better than 50 cm. In addition, the RFID transponder contains information on the authorised operating mode. The RFID transponder may be mounted on a platform, on the track or at a stop, even within concrete to protect from vandalism.
