The RFID tag is used to track the car within the BMW factory. It is an “internal” tracking device. The Siemens-developed system places an active tag on each completed vehicle as it is prepared to leave the production line. A worker scans the car's unique vehicle identification number (VIN), printed on a bar-coded label attached to the vehicle, and also the unique ID encoded on the RFID tag. The two numbers are then linked in the RTLS database. For the rest of the time the vehicle remains at the plant, a network of RFID readers linked together over a wireless LAN will detect the tag as it beams its unique tag ID number every four minutes. So, unless who ever stole the car, goes back to the plant, the car wont be tracked because it will be out of reach of their wireless lan system. The MOBY-R system uses WhereNet's WhereLAN Location Sensor and Locating Access Point technology to create a 2.4 GHz wireless network within a facility. To track vehicles both inside and outside the plant, access points (devices that read the tags' transmitted signals) are installed 250 to 350 feet apart indoors, and 750 to 1,000 feet apart outdoors. BMW has used its RTLS network to replace a manual method of tracking finished vehicles, increasing efficiency and speeding throughput of vehicles through its production plants. You should have had a tracking system installed in order to be able to track the car real time over GPS. PS: Do you know how many models of beamers there are? Maybe you should have mentioned model and year on your question. BMW is not as unique as you may expect. Mentioning the fact that you own a BMW is not enough info for people to answer your question correctly. Your car could be an Isetta for all we know. Addendum: Good, now we know what beamer you have. If you've registered for remote services online, You need to log in and tick the box under services. It then will show you a message on the screen about activating GPS tracking in the car. But from what I understood you have to activate/deactivate GPS tracking from within the car itself. Therefore I am still not sure you will be able to locate the car. You could try contacting BMW. If they can do remote updates on your car software, maybe there is a small chance they will be able to help you track it.

American Museum of Natural History has a smart phone application that is a portable wayfinding guide and virtual docent. Sony Wonder Lab which is a media and technology has a variety of immersive spaces such as markerless motion capture, RFID tracking, personalization, and virtual surgery that uses haptic controls. I would also look at the BMW Museum in Germany, the Casson Mann designed exhibits at the Science Museum in London, and the David Small media piece at the Nobel Prize Peace museum. The list is long.
Accenture is advancing RFID location tracking technology and has experience deploying and integrating RFID solutions. The US Military requires their entire supply chain to be tracked using RFID for location. Hospitals use RFID to track the location of patients from check in to check out, provide call buttons, keep track of expensive dialysis and X-ray machines, and find doctors. Businesses use Location-Based Services and Applications all the time for tracking their assets. Freight tracking and vehicle tracking are mainstream and already the market looks crowded with solutions. GPS tracking works well for vehicles, but for the cargo RFID has become common. Parcel services (USPS, UPS, Fedex) generally provide detailed tracking, and RFID is a part of this tracking s. BMW allows customers to track their vehicle while it is manufactured, and several manufacturing facilities use wireless location services. Some airlines offer RFID tracking for checked bags, and many businesses use "context-aware" IT management software to physically locate network problems. Dubai has parks with RFID tracking for children. Seoul South Korea has a park with RFID tracking for children. A refinery in the Midwest has RFID-WiFi location tracking inside the plant. "Assets" are Tagged with an RFID device. The RFID device is tracked with RFID readers, Low Frequency RFID Exciters, and WiFi networks. RFID readers only activate at close range. Exciters activate Active RFID Tags at longer ranges, up to 30'', and the Tag then transmits it's location using a Wi-Fi beacon. When not in range of an Exciter, Wi-Fi positioning engines use tri-lateration to calculate the location of Active RFID-WiFi Tags. They can calculate position with an accuracy of 5 meters, and in ideal environments even less. RFID Location Services are here already. NFC is in the hype cycle, but really it's a less scary word for RFID, specifically short range passive RFID combined with a RFID reader. The next big move is Telemetry.
QR code: A QR code is a barcode and is often associated with a product or a website. QR codes are very popular in Japan but not so much in the US. The idea behind QR codes is that when a consumer snaps a picture of a QR code with their smartphone, often using a special app, he or she will encounter appropriate product information or a brand's promotion. NFC: NFC is, put simply, a means for two devices to interact wirelessly at a very short range, usually 4 to 10 centimeters. NFC can be used for a lot of things, although it is most often talked about in the context of mobile payments, as in a mobile phone wallet. There are rumors that the iPhone 5 will have NCF capabilities and that the owner of an iPhone 5 will be able to tap their phone at a store's checkout/cash-register/POS to make a payment. But NFC on a mobile phone has a lot of other potential uses, like getting into your hotel room; unlocking the door of your BMW car; swapping business cards with professional acquaintances, etc. To generalize, NFC is mostly used for pairing devices and, to a minor extent, can be used to transfer information. NFC is meant to be user-friendly. Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a mid-range wireless technology. Unlike NFC, most devices are already able to make use of bluetooth. Wireless headphones, keyboards, etc use bluetooth. RFID: RFID stands for Radio Frequency ID (ID = identification). RFID is often built into special stickers, sometimes called RFID tags, that are put on packages. Stores and delivery companies use RFID to keep track of inventory and transported goods.
All automotive companies have recalls. However over the past 40 years, Ford has had more vehicles recalled as a brand, than any other. More than BMW, GM, VW, FCA or Toyota. On one hand, this is a good thing. It means the manufacturer learned of a problem and has “voluntarily” chosen to stand behind their product and fix it for free. However, the fact that numerous prototypes made it through the testing phase without these problems surfacing is questionable and disturbing. There are a few things to keep in mind, regarding recalls. First is cars are perhaps the most complex items a typical consumer will purchase. They consist of numerous individual systems that all must work perfectly together, and that’s no easy task. Even for a large automaker, an unforeseen problem can come up, which engineers and testing staff could’ve missed. It’s possible to test for most use scenarios, but it’s nearly impossible to test for every conceivable contingency or use. Second, many of the individual parts on a modern automobile are made by sub-contractors. A popular example today is the infamous Takata airbag debacle, which affected many manufacturers. In those cases, it’s difficult to hold the car company responsible for something the sub-contractor built. Third, consumers are much more demanding of their more complex cars today. In previous years, cars were pretty simple machines and the public understood that. Things such as ABS, brake/shift interlock systems, the ECU, pushbutton RFID starting, seat heaters, passive restraint systems, automated stop systems and more didn’t exist 50 years ago and consumers were happy with what they had available at the time. If a floor mat came loose and caused the gas pedal to stick 50 years ago, there would never be a recall. A judge and jury would laugh it off and tell the driver to not allow their floor mat to slide up under the pedal. Today however, it becomes a major issue as people are generally more litigious. Not to let Ford off the hook, as they definitely need to do a better job of preventing recalls through a more rigorous and thorough prototype testing program, but I certainly can understand how and why these things happen.

Other areas that are being looked at to use NFC technology, and one that I think will be bigger than payments, is Identity. But using an NFC device, whether that is a phone, a dongle or some other form factor and touching or having in close proximity to your PC, the ATM etc, your identity can be verified. A trial of this is taking place with IBM at the current time. Mobile Health, using NFC, is being used already with RFID tags on medicines being tagged by NFC phones to check prescriptions and validate usage. B BMW have announced and NFC project that looks very interesting http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/108472/20110203/iphone-lg-electronics-retail-ipad-cloud-computing.htm although this is also linked to payments, it does incorporate other non payment features.
RFID has been implemented in various aspects of the auto industry for many years. I can recall nearly 17 years ago my company was selling RFID transponders to BMW for airbag identification. And well before that from the 1990’s RFID immobilizers were introduced as anti theft devices and they are now required by law in many countries. , Keyless entry with RFID is being offered by few automakers and I believe some automakers experimented with the use of NFC for Bluetooth pairing of mobile phones. Check this video from Honda The full potential for RFID (NFC) can be further seen in this

When you talk Tesla and Kia e-Niro, my assumption is that you compare Tesla Model 3 to the Kia e-Niro. To set the record straight: I own a Tesla Model 3 Long Range All Wheel Drive and I own Tesla stock. But I think that I can give an open-minded answer as my background is automotive for as long as I have been alive. Both are good cars, and have good reviews. I like how Bjørn Nyland is doing reviews of a lot of EVs, so that might be a good alternative source too. He is Norwegian, is from ?origine? Thai, loves Tesla, and is open-minded too on all EVs. His Youtube channel has a lot of good tests and reviews -> ,Bjørn Nyland So both Tesla Model 3 and Kia e-Niro / Hyundia e-Kona (sharing a good portion of the technology) are all good EVs. The experience with changing over from a normal car to an EV like Kia e-Niro will be less different than switching from a normal car to a Tesla Model 3. The Kia e-Niro still uses a lot of the interior design from a traditional car. And regarding build experience and quality Kia is good, so choosing a Kia is certainly not a bad one! The service organization in the markets in which they operate good and experienced. The interior’s look and feel of the Kia e-Niro is less luxurious due to older interior design with shiny plastic and a small touchscreen integrated into the center-console. It does not have the richness of features as the Tesla Model 3, but the infotainment system does support both Apple Carplay and Android Auto (for free). On the e-drive energy efficiency, both Kia e-Nero and Tesla Model 3 have roughly the same performance. The Tesla Model 3 is available in different configurations, which have differences in battery size, number of driven wheels, and features on mainly interior and infotainment system. The interior is, in my humble opinion, good looking and looking more luxurious. It is minimalist, and that is something you like or not. The limited knobs and buttons is something you can get quickly used to. Similar for the big central “iPad”. The Tesla Model 3 is way richer in amount of technology in the car: ability of internet connectivity, Full Self Driving hardware and optionally FSD software, ability to play Netflix / Youtube videos and ability to play games when standing still, and Over-The-Air updates (really a game changer in the industry), its e-drive technology lead (battery - inverter - e-motor). No Apple Carplay and Android Auto, but streaming via Spotify and over phones bluetooth. Quality of Tesla Model 3s are, like Kia’s, good. On the charging side, both cars support the same public slow and fast charger networks. Tesla has the advantage of being able to use Tesla Supercharger network which is very cost efficient and most easy to use (no use of RFID, apps or whatever necessary … just connect and charge, and costs will be invoiced via one’s Tesla account). The Tesla also supports higher charging powers, so effectively charging quicker to continue your journey. Regarding handling, Tesla managed to set the benchmark in the blend of handling and comfort. With that said, the Kia e-Niro is not a bad driving car, but it has to recognize the Tesla Model 3 being the better of the 2. So the choice of Kia e-Niro or Tesla Model 3 is one you can only make. I really recommend to test drive each of them before fixing your choice. My preference would be and is the Tesla Model 3, and that is driven by its superb handling, new technology hosted in this car which continues to evolve with each (roughly monthly) software update, Tesla’s granular and cost effective Supercharger network, Full Self Driving capabilities (under development but already good driver assistance systems), the looks of the car, and the recognition that Tesla is doing a awesome job to move the needle in leading the transition to renewable forms of transport. There are drawbacks to the choice of a Tesla Model 3. The huge success of Tesla in the market place and their need to sell higher volume cars has an impact on their Service network. This has 2 negative side effects. The consistency of a delivered new car has improved, but can in some cases be not on par with established brands. This means that when you take delivery of a new Tesla you need to do a check whether all is OK; no paint defects, little scratches, little bumps, or what more. When you get these points noted during delivery and make an appointment to get them fixed they get fixed. But the check that normally a dealership would do for you (at least that is what my BMW dealer always did very well) is not that good at Tesla … I assume due to the pressure linked to high volume deliveries by a relatively small team. Second drawback, and this is improving in the last few months, is the lead time to get things fixed. Emergency response is good, but little things take some time to get an appointment for fixing / replacing. Tesla service employees are very kind and helpful and try to do their best to get / keep you going, but the overall performance is simply lower than that of competitor products. Luckily Tesla’s do not break down often. Now there will be all kind of weirdos who claim quality is bad in a Tesla, and they use bogus sources for it. When one tries to make a point that reliability of Tesla’s is a serious issue, and takes the statistics that incorporates paint defect at delivery, or a scratch at delivery to be a reliability issue … then you are abusing data to push one’s agenda that Tesla sucks. Unfortunately these types (so called short-sellers, so individuals that strive on the failure of a company) are also active on Quora. Simply go through their answers on Quora and see what they have answered. Mostly they are very similar answers, on a very limited number of topics, all with only negativism in them. And let’s be realistic: how on earth can a company and its product be that bad when it is a completely and true market success. So, to wrap things up. If you want to spend less and still want a good EV then you will have a great car with the Kia e-Niro. It will serve you well. You will have minor drawbacks with lower charging speeds and less granular fast charging network when being on longer road trips. If you have some more money available, love technology, drive often longer trips, then I think the Tesla Model 3 will be a better fit for you.
