Nedap - leading specialist in vehicle identification and detection technology - launches the next generation of its solutions for vehicle access control. Nedap MOOV is the world’s first access control system specifically designed for vehicle entrances in cities, industrial estates and parking facilities. With this new solution Nedap responds to the worldwide trend towards smarter cities and the increasing focus on mobility challenges in those cities.
Nedap has been active in the field of vehicle access control for decades. The Dutch company is also well-known for its building access control and RFID readers. Nedap MOOV originates from the Dutch market where the product is applied in more than 40 cities to regulate the volume and the flow of motorized traffic in city centers and shopping areas. In these cities, managed vehicle entrances to the city center are created to control who is granted access and who does not get access. Multiple identification technologies can be applied and custom authorization schemes can be implemented. For example, police and emergency services can be given unrestricted access using long-range active RFID systems. Suppliers can be granted access in certain timeframes using license plate recognition. It is possible to allow access to licensed taxis only, using RFID. Other persons may be granted access manually through the remote web based management interface.
Three dedicated modules
MOOV is not only suited for City Access Control, it also has a dedicated module for vehicle access management for business parks with multiple tenants. The system ensures that only authorized persons are allowed access to the estate and also enables every tenant to only use its allocated share of the total parking capacity.
A third MOOV module was designed for parking operators to manage the entrance to their parking and enable the seamless integration with advanced booking systems for parking facilities.
Safer environment for city residents and visitors
“It is great that we are now able to deliver the renewed and improved MOOV platform to our international client base. Nedap Mobility Solutions, part of Nedap Identification Systems, has a broad portfolio of solutions that can help cities worldwide to deal with the mobility challenges that they face today. Vehicles are by far the most popular mode of transport in cities worldwide and systems like MOOV can contribute very effectively to a better and safer environment for city residents and visitors”, says Maarten Mijwaart, General Manager of Nedap Identifications Systems.
Vehicle management control
Nedap’s VMC, a dedicated vehicle management controller, is connected to all potential local peripheral devices, like intercom, traffic lights, RFID readers and barriers. It is able to run standalone when needed. Moreover, it is connected to a cloud based server, which enables administrators to manage access to the city in a secure way, at any time from any location.
The system has proven to be effective in large and small cities. City centers have become more attractive to both pedestrians and drivers. Safety and traffic flow are optimized without hindering the emergency services, suppliers or taxis.
MOOV can only be supplied and installed by Certified Partners for City Access Control. Please contact your Nedap representative for more information.
