Title: Radio frequency identification parts verification system and method for using same

Abstract: A system and method for collecting data relating to the parts of a vehicle and using such data to determine if the vehicle can be operated. The system entails the deployment of a plurality of radio frequency identification tags on or within various parts of the vehicle that are capable of issuing radio frequency signals containing data related to each corresponding part. A radio frequency transceiver capable of interfacing with and receiving data stored within each tag operates in conjunction with a central processor unit capable of analyzing the data from each tag and determining whether the vehicle needs parts to be replaced or can be operated with its existing set of parts.
