LicenSys together with our development partner, Tönnjes International, has developed the RAIN RFID plate and Third License Plate label products. When used with overhead or handheld RFID readers they form the next generation of automated positive vehicle identification technology.

The solution significantly increases the efficiency, accuracy and security of vehicle identification well into the future.

It combines fraud-resistant identification technology with an RFID chip that is integrated into the license plate and the inclusion of the Third License Plate label provides an additional level of security.

RAIN RFID vehicle identification solutions are already in service in several Latin and South American countries.

This technology can be used for automated vehicle identification and improves toll monitoring, access control, and combating vehicle related crime.


Our solution provides government and law enforcement agencies with a highly effective technology to positively identify all vehicles, including those attempting to avoid detection. It also provides strengthened governance for safer more efficient roads.




The RFID chip and antenna is an integral part of the aluminium license plate and cannot be removed or tampered with, without visible damage or without compromising its intended functionality.

The IDePLATE® uses the secure embossed aluminium production method and can be combined with other visual security features at the time of secure manufacture.

The data stored in the RFID chip can be accessed and verified at any time using mobile or stationary readers – both in standing and moving free flow traffic. This product is designed for automated vehicle and toll monitoring, access control, and combating criminal offences such as vehicle theft, vehicle identity and registration fraud.

IDeSTIX® (third license plate)

The IDeSTIX® label is offered with a coloured license plate image to provide a straight forward comparative visual identifier together with an integrated RFID option for a manual RFID read.

The IDeSTIX® are based on holographic security labels that self-destruct on any attempt at removal and so rule out manipulation and misuse. This ensures a maximum level of security.

RFID overhead reader


Our RFID reader products include proven overhead readers that can be mounted on an overhead gantry or existing transport infrastructure such as bridges or overpasses. A hand-held reader for manual plate or label verification by law enforcement agencies is also available.

We are developing a smart RFID in-road sensor to provide the next generation of RFID read performance, and as a platform to collect other vehicle data in addition to vehicle ID.


The IDeTRUST® software matches the data on the IDePLATE® or perhaps the IDeSTIX® against that stored in official vehicle databases. In the event of traffic or access checks the data is decoded and verified and can also be exchanged with any linked-up official interfaces – for example the police or vehicle registration authorities.

Through the use of digital signatures in conformity with ISO/IEC 20248, all UTI RFID solutions offer the possibility of both offline and online verification of the vehicle-related data.

Also in this area, highly sophisticated technology ensures the greatest possible protection against falsification and manipulation.

With the IDeTRUST® Verification App, vehicle identification can also be performed via smartphone. In this case, the relevant data is integrated on registration into a tamper resistant QR code or RFID chip on the license plate or third license plate.

The IDeTRUST® Verification App can be installed on all standard smartphones and is also a convenient method of vehicle identification for private business applications – for example in car parks, for vehicle fleets or at fuel stations.
