Abstract—Effective utilization of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology between vehicle and base station over a wireless channel to facilitate vehicle maintenance monitoring and vehicle authentication is proposed. This system is able to automatically register the vehicles in highways or gas stations and inform the user about the vehicle maintenance states. The details of the required services are sent to the user at the clocking of the mileage of the vehicle approaching time for service or already due to be serviced. The implementation is divided into two parts; the vehicle module and the base module. The proposed system attempts to solve the communication coverage problem. It also increases the supported range to solve the home use limitation and improve the accuracy of the data transferred by using Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
