Audis Now Being Tracked By RFID Tags

Identec Solutions RFID tags will now be used by Audi to track their Audi TT line while in production. I guess the worry is what happens is they forget to remove the RFID tags. Does that mean they can track all your destinations?

Implications - Recent months have seen a string of reports about RFID privacy concerns in various products, so here's to hoping that Audi makes sure these ones get used (and removed) responsibly. If they only end up being used to track the progress of the 350 Audi TT chassis being produced at Audi's plant in Ingolstadt, Germany, then that's one thing. If they end up being used to track consumer usage patterns, however, it would be a very controversial move. Stats for Audis Now Being Tracked by RFID Tags Trending: Older & Average
