RFID tags in tires required by 2004

surprisingly wasn't censored by today (like many slashdot posts)
please spread the word ! / and post on other boards if possible ... apparently they've been in some tires since 2002.
Your car tires have RFIDs in them ALREADY!!! (Score:4, Interesting)

Its a us federal sponsorred initiative to track vehicles near certain highways feeding certain urban areas.
basically the fbi enters a rfid number into the database and then history of travel for the car pops up.
the feds can also pre-enter rfids they want to watch after getting a reading off your parked car or from the canadian-us customs border (where they already actively log the car rfids in the tires and associate them with plates)
Your tires have a passive coil with 64 to 128 bit serial number emitter in them! (AIAG B-11 ADC v3.0) .
Photos of chips before molded into tires:
Californias Fastpass is being upgraded to scan ALL responding car tires in future years upcoming. I-75 may get them next in rural funnel points in Ohio.
YOU MUST BUY NEUTRALIZED OR FOREIGN TIRES!!!!! Soon such tires will become illegal to import or manufacture.
Using these chips to track people while they drive is actually the idea of the us gov, and current chips CANNOT BE DISABLED or removed. They hope ALL tires will have these chips in 4 years and hope people have a very hard time finding non-chipped tires. Removing the chips is near impossible without destroying the tire as the chips were designed with that DARPA design goal.
They are hardened against removal or heat damage or easy eye detection and can be almost ANYWHERE in the new "big brother" tires. In fact in current models they are integrated early and deep into the substrate of the tire as per US FBI request.
Our freedom of travel are going away in 2003, because now there is an international STANDARD for all tire transponder RFID chips and in 2004 nearly ALL USA cars will have them. Refer to AIAG B-11 ADC, (B-11 is coincidentally Post Sept 11 fastrack initiative by US Gov to speed up tire chip standardization to one read-back standard for highway usage).
The AIAG is "The Automotive Industry Action Group"
The non proprietary (non-sokymat controlled) standard is the AIAG B-11 standard is the "Tire Label and Radio Frequency Identification" standard
"ADC" stands for "Automatic Data Collection"
The "AIDCW" is the US gov manipulated "Automatic Identification Data Collection Work Group"
The standard was started and finished rapidly in less than a year as a direct consequence of the Sep 11 attacks by Saudi nationals.
I believe detection of the AIAG B-11 radio chips (RFIS serial number transponders) in the upgraded car tracking http://www.tadiran-telematics.com/products6.html is currently secret knowledge. Another reason to leave "finger print on Driver license" California, but Ohio gets it next, as will every other state eventually.
The AIAG is claiming the chips reduce car theft, assist in tracking defects, and assists error-proofing the tire assembly process. But the real secret is that these 5 cent devices are a us government backed initiative to track citizens travel without their consent or ability to disable the transponders in any way.
All tire manufacturers are forced to comply AIAG B-11 3.0 Radio Tire tracking standard by the 2004 model year.
Viewing b11 synopsis is free, downloads from that are $10 and tracked by the FBI. Use the google cache to avoid leaving breadcrumbs.
A huge (28 megabyte compressed zip) video of a tire being scanned remotely is at http://mows.aiag.org/ScriptContent/videos/ (the file is "video Aiagb-11.zip"). I would use a proxie when touching it. The FBI is monitoring the "curious" hackers.
And just as showerheads are now illegal to import into the USA from Canada or mexico, as are drums of industrial Freon, and standard size toilets are illegal to import for home use, soon car tires without radio transponders will be illegal to bring across state borders.
All the tires stored in the federal logging computers at the current and future interstate highway chokepoints can be (with some effort) tied to particular peoples vehicles, but typically they are used forensically, (ie. After a vehicle is found, its history of travel is used as evidence against it, installing at factories, and people using credit cards to buy new tires makes a few more strategies easy for the feds).
The US gov is getting away with this. You read it here first. Well over a YEAR and a HALF ago, from me, but fbi shills kept marking my message to -1 to silence this post except in recent post where it survived at +2 after 20 hours.\. It never gets modded up (after 12 hours), and this is the probably fourth time I posted it over the last 14 months, each time within hours, a cluster of shill slashdot accts by the government mod it down to 1, 0 or most often -1.
I do not care, but come people might.

RFID Tags Gain Traction in Tire Tracking
August 28, 2001—When tomorrow's rubber meets the road, it will likely be carrying a small, electronic tracking device that will aid the verification of tire warranty, authenticity, and performance. A new standard, developed by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) is ready for roll-out. Called B-11, the soon-to-be-released standard is said to be the world's first application standard addressing item-level identification using RFID technology.
This past June, the AIAG conducted a technical demonstration to evaluate RFID technologies, and in July, the organization's Tire and Wheel Identification Work Group adopted the MH10.8.4 air interface standard. ("Air interface" refers to the way RFID interrogators interact with the computer chips on tags.)
Placed on the inside of the vehicle's tires by the tire manufacturers, the UHF-based, 128-byte, read/write RFID tag provides the ability to associate that tire with a specific vehicle. Along with the unique tag ID, a 12-character coding structure, called the DOT (Department of Transportation) Number, will be written to each RFID tag by the tire manufacturer. The DOT code identifies the manufacturing plant, tire size, unique components of the tire, and the week and year that the tire was manufactured. Congress's recently passed Transportation Recall Enactment, Accountability and Documentation Act (TREAD) supports this initiative. Tires with RFID chips could be released as early as January 2002. According to the Rubber Manufacturers Association, last year's shipments of tires for new passenger vehicles and light trucks totaled 67.3 million, while replacement tires totaled 233.2 million.
Prime among the RFID tag manufacturers for this new application is Intermec Technologies Corp. (Everett, WA), whose Intellitag system supports the new standard. "Intermec has been working with the major US auto makers and tire suppliers for some time to develop an RFID product to provide a permanent and unique identity for each tire that goes on a vehicle," said Eric Freeburg, a Detroit-based executive with Intermec and a member of the AIAG committee (see related item under "PEOPLE"). The application means improved data collection and sharing throughout the supply chain, noted Jim Evans, vice president of Intellitag product management for Intermec. "Now we're taking the technology to the next level by working with the major auto makers to develop an inexpensive chip that will provide real-time inflation and temperature information to the driver."
