AUTOMATIC VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION: TESTS AND APPLICATIONS IN THE LATE 1970'S

One general approach to identifying a vehicle uniquely and automatically as it passes on the roadway without requiring any action by the driver uses a transponder on the vehicle and an interrogator by the roadside. When the identity is passed from the interrogator to a data system which may have data storage, retrieval, computation, display, and actuation capabilities, various functions such as charging for the use of road or parking facilities, fleet management, and fine grain traffic control become possible. This paper reports recent testing of such systems and considers some probable early applications.
