Electronic Toll Collection

RFID technology can dramatically decrease vehicle queuing at automobile toll plazas, speed throughput, and significantly improve the quality of life for commuters and communities. Electronic toll collection transactions to occur under normal highway driving conditions. Open road tolling eliminates plaza barriers and creates a new toll road design that mitigates congestion. High occupancy vehicle tolling is an extension of electronic toll collection. It is also a concept that is rapidly gaining favor with transportation agencies and planners as it allows them to make better use of the often underutilized high occupancy vehicles. With high occupancy tolling, single occupant vehicles (SOVs) can drive on HOV lanes for a fee. Open road tolling gives toll authorities the flexibility to set variable pricing for toll services. Pricing types include premiums or discounts based on the time of day and congestion level. Variable pricing models can be pre-established, or modified in real time, responding to existing traffic situations. Variable pricing allows the transportation authority to maximize the use of HOV lanes.

Public Transport

Contactless RFID-cards for large metro systems and other traffic systems offer numerous benefits compared to conventional contact-based tickets. As the ticket validation is carried out without direct contact to a reader, public transportation organizations are able to realize cost-savings through reduced maintenance efforts for mechanically heavily stressed equipment in conventional, contact-based mass transportation systems. Furthermore, the ticket validation process is much quicker than manual stamping thus reducing waiting queues and offering a convenient entry process for passengers. Access control and time entry (tickets and cards) are central applications . Public transportation involves both, and RFID technology is increasingly used in this area.RFID-based public transportation applications help significantly increase efficiency with several millions of passengers per day that need to be equipped with reliable and convenient access solutions. The adoption of contactless entry systems in public transportation is growing not only for high-quality access cards. Public carriers increasingly seek to improve their systems with comprehensive solutions that cover the entire range of tickets used.

Access Control

RFID technology provides a hands-free access control solution with many advantages over traditional access control badges and systems. With conventional systems, such as bar code, magnetic stripe, and proximity readers, user must handle the badge and place it close to, or make physical contact with the reader. RFID access control technology allows the user to enjoy complete hands free access control. The RFID tags which are used in the access control system can report any unauthorized access and issue an alert to the host software. In addition, it can be used to trigger cameras and video recorders in order to capture unauthorized or authorized access in real-timeRFID for employee access control systems is being used world-wide. There are many areas in which RFID tags are carried by people to allow them to gain access to facilities or services like secure access to work place, safety access to dangeruos equipments, acesss to computer or vehicle , access to leisure facilities.
