NXP’s MIFARE Ultralight Nano, a contactless smart paper ticketing IC, is powering the technology used in the entrance passes for the 150,000 athletes, government officials, university leaders, VIP guests, delegates and other event participants from all over the world. The solution is in the form of an ID badge that will provide authorized access to the sports venues, training centers, athlete residences, meal programs and VIP events such as the opening and closing ceremonies.
NXP collaborated with the Taipei City Government and the Universiade Committee to develop the MIFARE Ultralight Nano smart ticketing solution.
“2017 Taipei Summer Universiade is the biggest international sports event hosted by Taiwan,” Li-Chong Su, the chief of Taipei Summer Universiade Committee, said. “In order to ensure the security of every participant, including athletes, judges and VIP guests, flow control is critical. With their advanced technology, the complex identity verification process turns out to be faster, more convenient and more secure for all participants.”
The 29th Summer Universiade in Taipei is taking place in Taipei, Taiwan, from Aug. 19-30, 2017.
