Well if you're not doing anything wrong then you don't have anything to worry about.

What if the plate takes a rock from the vehicle in front of you.  It says during the pilot program the plate shall not transmit or retain location.  Ya I believe that.

In this case, thank the University of South Carolina and a bunch of technocrats that develop a solution to a non-existent problem, then lobby the sh!t out of politicians to adapt this 'breakthrough technology'

Product Information

The Problem:  
?Uninsured Motorist (Cost an estimated 150 billion in the US alone)
?Current vehicle identification technologies are 60+ years old
?Stocking and managing diverse license plate inventories are costly
?Entities relying on stickers (month/year decals) are ineffective for their intended purposes
?Attempts to remedy these problems have only been marginally effective (license plate readers, RFID, digital license plate, etc…)


Our Solution:  
?Compliance Innovations patented application for e-paper utilization with the 21st century electronic tag
?The ability to produce a vehicle license plate which can be change wirelessly to reflect current registration status
?A digital license plate with ultra low power consumption and kinetic energy harvesting capabilities
?Provide visible compliance status to law enforcement and the driving public


Competitive Advantage:  
?No other product with immediate visible compliance notification
?Product can be tied into the existing Amber Alert notification system
?Eliminate month/year decals. If concept is still requested, it would be part of the display
?Issuing agencies can use one Compliance Innovations license plate to issue every type of license plate (Only one type of plate needed in inventory)
?Increase revenue (County, Local, Municipal, State. etc.)
?Increase compliance rate
?Increase highway safety
?Increase insurance industry revenue
?Used by law enforcement in the visible notification of a crime committed (stole plate, stolen vehicle, etc.)
?Law enforcement will no longer be required to collect suspended license plates only ( known as memorandum officers)
?Eliminate decal fraud (internal and external)
?Decrease DMV walk-in customers on plate exchanges (example: USC to Clemson, etc., completed by electronic means)
?Eliminate International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) decals, IFTA decals can be incorporated into Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV)
?Incorporate the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) program into the CMV plates (38 jurisdictions participate in this program)
?Incorporate USDOT numbers into CMV plates (these change frequently, depending on who the carrier is leased to)

When is this going to stop?

I'm fucking tired of the relentless march to total surveillance and a total police state. They never run out of ideas and they're always coming up with new ways to exploit technologies.

I want to go back to the 1970s, even if women were a bit hairier back then.

Electronic license plates? Smells like a lot of fun for your Sunday afternoon wardriver.

Hackers will go CRAZY with that. And bling-wearing gangstas with money will have an illegal plate-changer-job done to their blacked out 300 donk so they can drive placidly from every driveby.
Link Posted: 9/9/2013 7:41:57 AM EDT
The company ties to shit like this should be outlawed. They have a company cooking up "smart license plates" then supporting legislation to eventually have them on everyone's car! 100% horse shit! Then, they say they can change what's on the plate, such as ads when the car stops Who gets the money for the ads? Can I charge them for the electricity to run this monitoring device if it has to be wired into my vehicles electrical system?
I swear it should be illegal to even propose crap like this

be kinda fun to spoof plates - build little transmitters, say about 50 of them, all with the same plate # response, plant them on a bunch of cars - would more than likely drive the cops nuts trying sort that one out...

Picture this. Bank robbers change vehicle plate to match the plate of a same color and model vehicle belonging to an innocent person. Rob bank. Get away. Change plate to something else.

CA cops. Innocent driver driving around with wanted plate. What could go wrong?

That's the beauty in these programs, it doesn't matter how much it costs.

We'll just make the vehicle owners pay for it!

XXX porn by way of hacked signal.

Stolen plates for purposes of scavenging a "monitor".

I'm sure the board will be hardware encoded to the license plate number. Next,someone could always hack the display with their own custom electronics. I'm sure people could also have fun transmitting the "stolen plate" signal




I could have so much fun with this.

Won't happen because the police unions will fight it tooth-and-nail.  Automatic tickets would seriously cut into their overtime.
