New RFID-based access control system deployed at Karachi port
A new, high-end RFID-based access control system has been deployed at a Karachi port in an attempt to bolster security, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The newly-installed Radio Frequency Identification System at the Ernakulam Wharf of the Kochi Port includes a sensor-based facility that recognizes vehicles at wharf gates. It aims to regulate the movement of vehicles, cargo, and people in the sensitive wharf area.
Under the new system, port users will be given RFID tags, which have to be fixed on the windshields of vehicles. Access is granted when the sensor of the system captures and recognizes the vehicle at the gate.
The system works on ultra-high frequency signals, and every entry and exit of vehicles is stored in a system, which enables long period of storage with easy retrieval facility of historical data at any point in time.
The introduction of RFID is one of the key measures adopted under the modernisation plan of India’s seaports, formulated by the Centre for port sector security and efficiency enhancement.
