Development of National Highway ITS Facility Management System Utilizing RFID Technology in Ubiquitous Environment

This paper reports on a study that applied radio frequency identification (RFID) in ubiquitous environments to road traffic intelligent transport systems (ITS) in metropolitan areas in Korea. RFID is already in widespread use for the operation and maintenance of logistics, security, transportation cards and electronic libraries. The ITS equipment installed for the project includes 335 sets of detectors, 61 variable message signs, 48 CCTV systems, 51 AVI systems, four weather systems and three items of road surface equipment. Data is collected in the operation center, and provides traffic information such as travel time and the level of congestion through variable message signs, the Web and kiosks. The authors propose the use of an RFID facility management system to support the inspection and maintenance process. As a demonstration model, the facility management system was tested on 394 pieces of local equipment used for the collection and provision of traffic information, including unmanned area centers. With the national highway ITS facility management system established in Korea, that authors conclude that it is now possible to save manpower and time needed for maintenance. In addition, management and supervision tasks have become easier.
