CALGARY, AB -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 6, 2007 -- Advanced ID Corporation (OTCBB: AIDO), the world's leading supplier of UHF tag reading technology, is pleased to announce a technology development and joint marketing program with Pneu-Logic Ltd., the world's leading supplier of electronic data capture technology for the tire industry.

Advanced ID, a United States public corporation, and Pneu-Logic, based in Great Britain, have signed a joint development and distribution agreement to integrate the two companies' tire identification and inspection technologies.

Advanced ID's hand-held UHF tag readers used with the Pneu-Logic fleet inspection tools will debut in March 2007. Pneu-Logic has tested the Advanced ID reader extensively and is pleased with its performance.

Dan Finch, President/CEO of Advanced ID, said, "Working with Pneu-Logic has shown us that our UHF-RFID solution for the tire industry in conjunction with Pneu-Logic will provide a complete, cost-effective solution that the tire management industry will embrace. We expect 2007 to be the year when RFID tire management replaces the bar code as the industry's long-term tire ID product. Moving forward, our partnership will provide the capability to sell our integrated solution throughout the world. Our continuing discussions with existing and potential customers indicate that our partnership will sell approximately 500 RFID readers and 1,000,000 tags or patches in the next twelve months. This is in addition to the Pneu-Logic products sold through the partnership."

Advanced ID will continue to pursue sales of embedded tire tags to the tire manufacturers on a direct basis or through our existing Advanced ID distribution network.
