Tecsidel starts its first MLFF Single Gantry project in Sweden

Tecsidel starts in December 2017 its first Multi-Lane Free Flow (MLFF) Single Gantry project in Sweden. This project awarded by Trafikverket (www.trafikverket.se), consists of the supply, implementation and start-up of the electronic toll collection system at Gothenburg Ring.

Unlike other MLFF solutions, based on two or three gantries, which Tecsidel had previously deployed in Portugal, Norway and Sweden, this solution includes DSRC OBU reader antennas, laser scanners for automatic vehicle classification, enforcement and automatic license plate recognition cameras, all on a single gantry. It incorporates, apart from a new scanning technique, new algorithms applied in the processing of the data obtained by its devices.

This solution performs those functions with the same time and reliability than with the multi-gantries configurations. Those functions are vehicle classification based on volumetric features, the ability to read the plate of each vehicle that circulates through the lanes covered by the gantry. Tecsidel implements this MLFF system with one unique Lane Controller that controls the multiple lanes.

Gothenburg Ring is composed by 7 plazas and 14 lanes and Tecsidel plans to end the project in 2018.
