A recent Associated Press article states:

PEMBINA, N.D. — New technology is being installed at the U.S.-Canada border crossing at Pembina, in northeastern North Dakota.

Radio frequency identification readers are being installed in all vehicle inspection lanes.

The technology can read chip-enabled travel documents, promising shorter waits for travelers who have them.
