    New Security Guards’ Check-in System Combines NFC and GPS 


    FC Solution, a Thailand-based company, has introduced a tracking system which requires security guards to check in to a location by tapping their NFC phone to a tag. The system also records the employee’s GPS location to ensure guards can’t cheat the system by removing tags placed around a secured area and putting them in an easier-to-access location.

    “We add the GPS location in the data record after the tag is tapped so the employer can check this tag read against the GPS location,” says FC Solution’s Vanchai Wongthamrin, “Before, without the GPS, the employee could take all the tags with them and keep them in the control center.”

    “All data recorded by the CloudFCS service can be accessed from a back office computer in real time,” says Wongthamrin. “The system can also be used for asset tracking.”

    Delhi Government Introduces GPS & RFID Tags 

    To ensure better road safety, the Delhi government may soon insist that all public transport vehicles like autos and taxis have a GPS system and RFID tag on board.

    A GPS system will ensure that the movement of a particular vehicle is tracked while an RFID tag can help in payment of toll charges electronically and reduce congestion on toll plazas.

    The tag is affixed to the upper central portion of the vehicle’s windscreen and the toll is automatically deducted by the RFID reader fitted at the toll plaza when the vehicle crosses a toll plaza.

    The state government said that the vehicle owner could be forced to install the GPS system and affix the RFID tag.
