Advanced ID Works With Fleet Managers, Re-Treaders and Resellers for Embedded Tire Tags and Has Agreed to Establish a Tire RFID User Group

Advanced ID Is Working With Companies in Several Countries Who Have RFID Based Tire Management and Tire Maintenance Applications That Require a Life-of-Tire ID Capability

CALGARY, AB -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 27, 2007 -- Advanced ID Corporation (OTCBB: AIDO) continues to add fleet management, resellers and re-tread companies in Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela who are buying RFID Tags for heavy duty truck and bus tires. Our trial in Mexico, for example, has reached the next level with additional hardware being purchased with the intent to implement the program at a production level. Our new trials in Brazil and Venezuela, as well as increased interest in Europe and Asia, indicate a huge potential requirement for the Advanced ID product line.

As these companies move forward with implementing an RFID based tire ID and maintenance system, the increased value associated with managing their tire inventory becomes apparent.

With numerous companies working on RFID tags in tires, Advanced ID has agreed to act as a point of contact with the tire manufacturers and will establish a Tire RFID User Group where the emerging industry can speak with a common voice.

Dan Finch, President and CEO of Advanced ID, comments, "The tire industry has been looking at embedded tire tags for at least four years. The first tire tag, shown in 2003, was a simple tag but demonstrated the technical capabilities of an embedded tire tag. Advanced ID's latest tire tag represents the state of the technology and has generated increased interest around the world. We know that expectations are high that the tire tag will revolutionize asset management as it relates to tires and we are providing a solid business case to the tire manufacturers to embed RFID tags in tire lines."
