New Product Links GPS and RFID to Track What's in the Vehicle

Advanced ID Corp., a developer of RFID solutions for supply chain applications, has partnered with Atlanta-based EarthSearch Communications to develop a product called AutoSearchRFID. The companies says it is the world's first integration of GPS and RFID at the hardware level. It not only provides real-time tracking of trucks, buses and ships but of the contents in the vehicle. Fleet managers can now monitor not only the location of the trucks, but they can monitor the movement of the packages and boxes in the trucks while in transit.

"This unique combination of GPS and RFID, along with the user friendly GPRS interconnections via international cellular networks, provides a product that offers the fleet operator unparalleled visibility of the supply chain and the contents of fleet vehicles on a real-time basis," says Kayode Aladesuyi, president and CEO of EarthSearch. Advanced ID and EarthSearch have signed a two-year agreement. EarthSearch will use one of Advanced ID's devices on an exclusive basis for specific application of the solution.
