How would you use RFID's to improve your city?
Scheduled Bicycle Removal in Amsterdam
May 09, 2013 Benjamin G5

In Amsterdam, a big problem arises from people locking bicycles and not retrieving them. They then sit, unused and deteriorating while taking up valuable space in bicycle racks, on bridges, and where other people wish to place their bikes. The municipality could tag these bicycles with an RFID chip in order to know how long they have been there, the general condition (ex. if a wheel is missing), and the possibility of a planned removal. If they notice the bike has been moved, then the chip is ignored and deleted from the reader database. If not, then the municipality can schedule large removals of bicycles, freeing up space and getting rid of eye-sores.
