Video Tolling also referred to as ‘Pay by Plate’ is an emerging automated, seamless payment method based on automatic recognition of license plates. A growing number of traditional barrier tolled motorways are turning to video toll lanes in order to provide road users with a better travel experience, as they avoid all the hassle associated with tag-based tolling. But more than anything, they’re doing it to move themselves into the era of modern future-focused tolling.
Video Tolling (VT) provide a seamless payment channel for motorists who don’t want tags – occasional drivers, foreign users, or younger drivers. Video Tolling provides them with a seamless toll paying experience. They just need to register online or via a smartphone app. Users enjoy the benefit of being recognized when traveling through the VT lane, as the barrier ‘magically’ opens for them. In this configuration, your toll plaza will consist of a mix of ETC lanes, VT lanes and Cash & Credit/Debit Card Lanes
In this configuration, Video Tolling replaces the need for tags or readers at all. Our simple roadside solution consists solely of Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) cameras installed to the side in each VT lane.
