Electronic Open-Road Toll Collection

For toll collection in free-flowing traffic, we apply a variety of technologies and combine them into smart systems. In addition to their high operational performance, these fully automated solutions help our customers to ensure mobility, thus assisting in preventing congestion and reducing pollution. We offer complete solutions with a multi-technology approach for meeting all types of requirements, specific needs and regional considerations:

01. Multi-lane Stop & Go Tolling
There is a barrier in our stop and go based toll collection systems and the toll collection is done at the point where the box office is located in any case. If there is sufficient balance in the account of the incoming vehicle, charge is collected immediately from the account, and if the balance is insufficient, charge is collected in cash at the box office. After collection, the barrier lever is opened by the system in an automatic manner and the vehicle is passed.
02. Multi-lane Free-Flow Tolling
Based on RFID or Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR). In case of RFID technology, identification is made on the vehicle with the help of a sticker attached to the glass. In case of ANPR technology, the vehicle number plate is read remotely using camera technology to determine whether the vehicle is required to pay the toll and, if so, to calculate the amount. Either way, the toll is recorded automatically without the vehicle having to stop.
03. Mobile Tolling Services
Smartphones keep forging ahead: Already numbering 2.6 billion devices worldwide, the number of smartphones is expected to reach 6.1 billion in 2020. Work, communication, information – intelligent mobile devices have already become closely integrated into most areas of our daily lives. And now, we are also using smartphones to facilitate toll collection.
