Electronic toll collection (ETC)

The electronic identification of vehicles and automatic payment or ETC (Electronic Toll Collection), is an advanced solution that is based on the communication by short microwave range between an antenna, installed in the lane collection, and an electronic device (TAG, OBU) installed in the vehicle.

The trend towards the use of these solutions is growing because they allow the payment of the toll without using cash or the detention of the vehicle, so it saves time and infrastructures.

Tecsidel’s electronic solutions can be used for the following applications: toll in highways, roads, bridges, tunnels and ferries; congestion control in urban environments, control of violations with location systems and tracking integrated with satellites and access control to venues and parkings.

This type of technology can be managed through mobile or portable terminals. Our e-solutions have interoperable systems and compatible with equipment from the world leading manufacturers. Tecsidel offers equipment and software for centers of customization and distribution of tags and uses cryptographic systems to ensure the authenticity of electronic transactions and reduce fraud.

Tecsidel offers solutions for each of the following ETC systems:

  • Free Flow
  • Congestion management
  • Access control and parking
  • Portable terminal

The interoperability of electronic toll collection systems is subject to the protocols used for communication between the antenna and the TAG, and the consistency of the data recorded on the TAG.

The functional interoperability depends on the information recorded inside the tags, and that allows the exchange of information between different issuers and the different dealerships in order to recognize the owner of the vehicle and can thus check transits. Tecsidel can adapt to all the requirements at the regional and state level depending on governmental and concessionary policies.

Market antennas used by Tecsidel systems support the most common protocols (ISO 18000-6B, ISO 18000-6C, ISO 18000-6D, ISO B_80K and ISO 10374) and, if necessary, it can be incorporated more restricted protocols.

The IPICO TAGs use the standard protocol ISO 18000-6D. These are read without problems by the antennas supplied by Tecsidel.
