RFID[Radio Frequency Identification] tags will be soon installed at the heathrow airport terminal 5, in order to monitor the Taxi exists to handle a predicted one million taxi movements when the 2012 Olympics begin.
The system will reduce taxi waiting times at what will be the world’s busiest airport and allow it control and track taxi access to the terminals. Fixed and handheld devices will monitor taxis, which will be equipped with RFID tags, to identify vehicles and their drivers. Data will then be transmitted back to system headquarters over a wireless network. Staff will also be able to communicate using the devices to ensure flexibility in the event of unplanned events like road works or accidents.
