One of the biggest challenge for driver when it comes to highways are toolboths. They decrease the traffic flow and often are the reason of significant traffic jams. Technology RFID is an appropriate solution to eliminate such problem and facilitate driving thru toolboths. It allows to automatize the time-consuming process of manual payment done by drivers. How is it possible? Toolboths with highway staff will be replaced with RFID toolboths that have antennas built in. RFID tags, put on the windshield, will be activated by antennas. Activated signal will be sent to RFID reader, and then to central unit. Then, advanced software, integrated with internet banking systems, will charge driver?s bank account with the proper amount of money.
Drivers do not have to stop in order to make payments, what results in dramatic decrease of long queues of cars, trucks and motorcycles.
In such systems ? implemented at regional or national level ? tags are assigned to drivers, using database of registered vehicles. Every tag is subscribed to individual register number. In the effect, authorities (local or national) or road owners gain the access to the impressive database, concerning the number of cars, frequency of driving on highway, any changes in traffic in any chosen time period. Such detailed information allow to manage any highway-related operations (e.g. roadworks) in more effective way.
