There’s Still Time to Register for RAE’s July 14th Webinar, “Automatic Vehicle Identification & Ingress (AVI) Solutions - Making Life Easier”

Join Reno A&E tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. PDT for an informative 45-minute webinar on our Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) & Ingress System that provides for rapid access for authorized vehicles to enter gated / secure areas automatically. Our unique AVI transponder emits a low frequency signal that is inductively coupled with any existing roadway loop connected to any one of our several AVI loop detectors. This webinar will relate how gated communities are using the system to allow only authorized vehicles to gain prompt access, without having to use keys or key pads. This technology is also being used to provide transit signal priority for buses at intersections without additional roadside infrastructure. To register, kindly visit
