The Prox’N’Drive is a contactless reader/writer designed for car fleet management or car-sharing.
Its housing is slightly flexible and designed to be installed behind the windsceen or a lateral window.
It has automotive connections (Molex) and supports a wide range of power voltage (from 3.3V up to 24V DC). It has also a low power standby mode (LPCD) enabling the car central processing unit to sleep until the coupler says that a card is shown.
Here is a presentation of the Prox'n Drive in video.
