E-License Plate Maker Sets Sights on Service Expansion

Electronic license plates may be gaining interest, with nearly 2,700 on cars in California and Arizona.

The plates, produced by the company Reviver, function as an electronic screen capable of altering its message — such as the car’s license plate number — as well as messaging, and even a “find my vehicle” feature, thanks to the technology’s wireless connectivity.

Reviver representatives say the technology is set to evolve with a host of other features, like handling parking and toll payments, said Neville Boston, CEO and co-founder of Reviver Auto. Tolling features could be added by the end of the year, with parking payment features available in the near future…

The plates have been available in California and Arizona, while Reviver plans to announce new partnerships with about four other states in the next month. The company is currently in the pilot phase with Maryland and Pennsylvania.
