Philippines: Vehicles Required to Install RFID Microchips Starting October.
- The RFID microchip is getting more ubiquitous. Even Big Pharma is getting into the act: Novartis chip to help ensure bitter pills are swallowed. BusinessWorld reports :
MOTORISTS WILL be required to install radio frequency identification (RFID) microchips on their vehicles beginning next month in an effort to crack down on various violations.
The device would check against non-registration of vehicle, traffic violation, car theft, and public utilities without permit or franchise, among others. The Land Transportation Office (LTO) would require the chip to be installed during vehicle registration, including those of motorcycles, for a fee of P350.
The microchip, which should be installed in a conspicuous location such as the windshield, would have information regarding the engine and chassis number as well as license plate number, color, make, series, registration data, owner information, franchise and vehicle route. The microchip would be read by a transmitter that would be randomly set up nationwide, and the information would be relayed to the LTO.
