Nedap Introduces Mace
Making its Gulf Traffic debut is Mace – Nedap Identification’s new mobile access control platform. Initially launched a few months ago, the system allows the use of smartphones to identify people using Bluetooth, NFC or QR-codes. The company says Mace was introduced in response to a global shift from issuing physical cards to using smartphone credentials.
The virtual credentials are stored in the Mace app which is available for both iPhone and Android phones and the QR-codes can be used in situations where wireless communications is undesirable or impossible. Nedap’s general manager Maarten Mijwaart, said the initial response has been very positive and the company is already working on pilot projects with potential users. It is also involved in ongoing discussions about the future shape of the platform.
