We recently got over the NFC chips from Micare from Heppenheim berichtetthat are designed to protect classic cars and collector's vehicles from theft. And now it was time to try out the tiny near field communication (short: NFC) chips and to present you with a practical part. We did not have an expensive classic car available as a test object, our 11 year old VW Phaeton but is already on the way to a young timer, and the Wolfsburg man is enough to show the functional principle of the NFC chips and the Micare database. The high number of thefts of classic cars worth 25.000 to 150.000 euros increases almost every day and that Missing Car Register, under the brand name MICARE PS, would like to significantly reduce this in the future. The chips included in the delivery all lead to the vehicle URL on MICARE PS and are read out using the free MICARE PS NFC app for Android or iOS.
self-adhesive NFC chips
Our Wolfsburg flagship is now also included in the database for stolen classics and in general every vehicle can go there. Because the system does not address owners of a classic car in any way. If, for example, the vehicle receives a forged chassis number after theft, it is still possible to clearly identify the car using the chips. And that applies not only to complete cars, individual parts can also be assigned without any doubt. For example, if the engine cover of the stolen Ferrari F40 is offered online, the invisible hidden NFC chip (can be painted over, for example) prove credibly that the hood offered belongs to the stolen F40.
The readout works in a few seconds thanks to the 10 self-adhesive NFC chips. The 5 coded MICARE PS NFC-PPS coins made of metal are particularly resistant to chemicals and a temperature range from -20 to 180 ° C and at the same time have a diameter of only 15 mm with a height of 3 mm. Even smaller are the 5 coded NFC stickers (PET), which are particularly flat and, with a size of only 10 × 10 mm and a height of 0,83 mm, can be applied almost invisibly to almost all components of the vehicle and even painted over. The NFC chips do not send any signals and therefore cannot be located and do not consume any electricity. They can be read out with a commercially available mobile phone and can still be assigned to the corresponding vehicle without any problems and without any doubt for decades to come. But it's best to watch our video!
