NEAR-TERM RFID APPLICATIONS IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

Current or near-term applications of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology demonstrate positive environmental contributions in the IVHS arena. Today, the use of RFID technology in intelligent transportation systems are most obvious in Electronic Toll and Traffic Management (ETTM), Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO), and Automatic Equipment Identification (AEI) applications. The primary environmental benefits of RFID-based ETTM and CVO applications are gained from relieving congestion and improving the efficient and safe movement of vehicles. RFID-based AEI applications also favorably impact the environment, chiefly through operating efficiencies gained from improved asset utilization. Following are explicit examples of some of the ways in which RFID technology in transportation systems promote environmental benefits.
