    Shanghai-illegal-taxi-cab-rfid-blogThe Chinese city, Shanghai, has begun using RFID technology to curb counterfeit taxi cabs to protect both passengers and taxi drivers.

    The authorities of Shanghai have put an RFID-enabled electronic license on each of the 50,000 taxis in the city. The tag, which will be pasted on the left side of the windshield, contains information including license plate number, engine number, color of the taxi, and details of the operating license.

    Law enforcement personnel will be able to scan the tag using a handheld device and instantly recognize whether the taxi is licensed and deemed legal.

    In Shanghai, illegal and counterfeit taxis have been causing headache to the authorities. Since the gradual roll-out of the system, approximately 271 “clone” taxis have been detained by the authorities.
