The project “Electronic toll collection system” mainly deals with identification of vehicles and carries out transaction processing. The “ELECTRONIC TOLL COLLECTION SYSTEM” is an Embedded System which is used for automatic toll collection. This system can be used in highway, bridge & tunnel. The major area of implementation of our project is related with traffic management system. Radio Frequency module is a generic term for technologies that use radio waves to automatically identify people or objects. The various benefits expected could be summed up as Speed of transaction increased safety, Cost reduction, fewer queues, Easier evacuation, more reliable equipment, less frustration. Less violent crime. Faster processing of vehicles, Reduces fraud. We have underwent a detailed study about the RF module application and implementation and found it applicable to the upcoming industries. Vehicle tracking and ticketing is just a low level application to imprint the wide level of application possible in this field. We combine expertise with an attentive understanding of our needs to deliver a technology solution that will accurately match your particular rules and requirements. It is applicable in areas where toll can be collected automatically, preventing road accidents due to overloading of vehicles, avoiding corruption and reducing manpower.
