ODIN Technologies reported Wednesday it will work with Unisys, which was awarded a $62 million contract earlier this year to install RFID systems across several hundred border crossing lanes between the United States, and Canada and Mexico.
The companies will deploy RFID technology for the Department of Homeland Security Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative. The Customs and Border Protection division of Homeland Security plans to combine RFID applications with License Plate Recognition in an effort to improve security along U.S. borders.
The WHTI program also includes RFID-enabled ID cards for faster border crossing.
