The idea is to use the low cost technology of passive RFID UHF and web-services in order to assure the storage of certified data and their safe movement along the physical and virtual network.
Benefits connected to the use of the system:

- Lower pollution due to queuing time-series
- Development of a virtual network over the physical one
- Development of an ad-hoc data storing and processing system
The same system can be adopted by smaller community or multi-hubs company for controlling vehicles’ movements and access.
