Reviver Auto is testing out digital license plates, touted to be able to track a vehicle, show slogans and (in case we don't see enough every day) show advertising. Privacy advocates are not impressed.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, what the company calls Rplates are also able to pay tolls automatically, track stolen cars and enable electronic vehicle registration — no more stickers necessary.
The plates can also track mileage and are able to set geofence notifications, Reviver Auto says. For instance, if a car goes beyond a certain assigned area, it could potentially notify managers.
