|English term or phrase: odometry tire tag|
|The odometry tire tag is a component of the odometry system. The odometry sensor in conjunction with odometry tire tags inside the vehicle tire provide the LPR Processing Unit with the data required for precise odometry.|

A vehicle positioning system using RFID tags. HF RFID tags are mounted in a vehicle wheel, more particularly a tire and an RFID antenna is provided in proximity to the wheel. A controller causes interrogation of RFID tags as the wheel turns and on the basis of the received identifiers ascertains a distance traveled, for example based on known distance between RFID tags on the wheel.- https://patents.google.com/patent/WO2017096493A1/en

License plate readers are increasingly widely deployed, but RFID readers are a cheaper and more versatile technology for vehicle tracking than LPRs, at least at present. A separate, properly positioned LPR camera is typically required for each lane, and optical character recognition software is needed to extract license plate numbers from raw imagery. A single, cheaper, RFID reader can cover multiple lanes, from a wider range of placement locations.
Vehicles without toll payment devices have other promiscuous RFID chips that broadcast unencrypted unique identifiers. New motor vehicles sold in the US are required to have automated tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), most of which rely on sensors and transponders attached to, or embedded in, new tires. There are no legal controls on tracking or logging of vehicle movements by means of these tire tags, and no way for ordinary motorists to know when, where, or by whom their position has been recorded, who has logs of past vehicle movements, or how those logs might be used in the future. Similar (and similarly uncontrolled) but shorter-range unique-numbered RFID chips are used as stored-value transit fare payment devices in many major metropolitan areas, so even non-drivers are at risk of being covertly tracked.
