The Vehicle Identification Device (VID) is a highly secure smart-card based vehicle identifier used for automatic capture of Level 3 data for fuel consumption monitoring.
The VID stores information such as the account number, registration number, fuel grade, and tank capacity of the vehicle. It has inputs for odometer and engine operating hours, an extended memory map and incorporates transaction counters. The tag is powered by the vehicle’s electrical supply.
