“Intertraffic Amsterdam” is the leading exhibition for the traffic and mobility industry. Kathrein was among this year’s more than 800 exhibitors and showcased, among other things, a barrier controlled by Kathrein RFID technology: When a miniature car with a built-in RFID transponder approached, the barrier opened automatically.

In order to implement this access control model, seven Kathrein apprentices took care of the matter. They built the barrier mainly from used components from decommissioned production facilities. The conclusion: It was a very interesting joint project for the apprentices.
