RFID-based Automated Toll Collection System

Mehfuza Holia, Zankhana Shah, Milindra Solanki



Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) is a technology that allows for electronic payment of tolls. One of the most efficient ETC technologies is the RFID technology. RFID-based ETCs permit swift tax collections on-the-go, thereby alleviating the delay problems associated with manual tollbooths. RFID systems make use of RFID readers, RFID tags and a processing system to provide seamless tax collection at tollbooths. RFID-based ETCs are very cost-effective because they are completely automated and low-maintenance structures. So, the expenditures associated with manpower and maintenances are absolutely negligible. This system when coupled with appropriate transceiver mechanism for tax deduction and enhanced security features can be used to eliminate all the issues associated with the manual system, thereby revolutionizing the modern tollbooth systems.
