RFID verifies 150K tickets at Grand Prix in Belgium

RFID helped to eliminate counterfeit tickets and ease the flow of spectators entering the Formula 1 Grand Prix held in Belgium last week. In order to manage the access of 150,000 fans to the race track, race officials relied on an RFID-based system provided by Belgian company RFIDea. Along with detecting and rejecting fake tickets, the solution offered Spa-Grand Prix greater security and efficiency.

All admission tickets for the Belgian F1 Grand Prix were embedded with RFID chips. Ticket takers, equipped with mobile RFID readers, utilized the data stored in the ticket chips to manage access to the different seating zones throughout the race track. A total of 80 RFID readers were used to control access to 20 seating zones.

By storing the entry and exit point information in the RFID chip itself, the counterfeiting and wrongful exchange of tickets – a huge threat at many events of such magnitude – can be nearly eliminated.

“Our software and infrastructure offer an undisputable added value for an event of such economic and logistical magnitude,” David Dalla Vecchia, CEO of RFIDea, said in a release. “Via a central server, Spa-Grand Prix is able to continuously control the traffic to and within the different circuit zones. Along with the additional safety and efficiency advantages, the organization can analyze and report on the status of attendance at all times.”

RFIDea was acquired by Zetes Group in May.
