AUTOMATIC VEHICLE RECOGNITION TOLL SYSTEMS: FROM RESEARCH TO REALITY

Improving vehicle throughput capacity at toll barriers is of paramount importance to optimize utilization of existing road resources. The application of automatic vehicle identification (AVI) systems at toll barriers can increase throughput by as much as 50 percent per lane. The Orlando/Orange County Expressway Authority of the State of Florida has developed and installed such a system over the past 2 years. This paper is an analysis and solution description of specific problems that occurred during applied research and production implementation of the AVI system. Integration problems and their resolution during the initial development tests and production integration of the system are emphasized. Among the issues researched and resolved by the expressway authority and its vendor were: automatic vehicle separation determination in heavy traffic in mixed lanes, high speed vehicle identification, cross read problem resolution in multiple lanes, host computer to lane communications, and general production operation of AVI systems in high density traffic in side-by-side multiple mixed lanes.
