In this paper, the authors explain about the prototype development of the proposed system and it presents hardware and firmware aspects of the design. A vehicle identification device profile was defined and developed using the Microchip Zigbee protocol stack. Hardware implementation of Zigbee RF tags, reader and writer was carried out using microchip micro-controller PIC18F4620, Chipcon CC2420 RF transceiver and an inverted F-type PCB antenna which was used with the transceiver. The designed application functions in the 2.4GHz frequency band.
