Panchkula. Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Dr. CP Joshi would inaugurate today country’s first RFID technology based electronic toll collection plaza at Chandimandir in Haryana today. This technology will help users to make payment without stopping at toll plazas and will reduce traffic congestion and commuting time. Toll Statements can be made or made available online to the road users and they need not have to stop for receipt.

RFID offers the cheapest solution for such transactions. It is also extremely simple to use - the user just need to put the RFID sticker on the vehicle.

Before issuance of RFID tags, the road users need to register with the agency with the basic details like name, address, vehicle type, vehicle registration no. etc. The information will be stored in the central database along with the unique identification code of tag. To begin with, 1-2 lanes in each direction will be dedicated for Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) at each toll plaza. The number of ETC lanes may be increased depending on the number of tag users.

Each ETC lane will be equipped with Automatic Vehicle Classification (AVC) system for cross verification of vehicle categories to avoid any misuse of tags. The ETC management software will compare the class of vehicle as per the Tag account and the AVC class. In case of discrepancy, the system triggers the camera fitted in lane and captures the image of the vehicle along with the number plate. The information will be used for issuing fines.

In a typical RFID based toll environment as a car reaches the toll gate, the tag transmits the stored information (serial number, account number, etc.) to the RFID scanner placed on the gate in the form of radio waves. The reader passes this data to a software system that processes it and charges the customer account. All this happens in a flash of a second.
