Contactless smart cards use radio frequency (RF) technology to interact with a reader.Each card has an antenna embedded inside the card that enables communication with the reader without physical contact.
The market for these cards is growing rapidly because of the obvious benefits of ease of use, speed and versatility. OPRFID is well placed to help you source these products creating tremendous new opportunities for issuers.
Popular applications are not limited to but include public transport for fare payment, access control, cashless vending, parking, loyalty, electronic purse, gambling, road toll, student, employee IDs in government and corporate environments, e-passports and other secure travel documents, and cards for cashless payment.
