Project title: Electronic toll collection system.

This system allows the vehicle drivers to pass the toll tax booths without stopping at the toll booths. The toll amount is deducted from the RFID card. This RFID card is rechargeable and account is stored on the records.

This system will have two benefits.

First benefit is that movement of traffic will be much faster as user will not wait to give the money because, driver has to just show the RFID card in-front of the card reader.

Second benefit is that driver doesn’t have to carry the money each time. He will just recharge the RFID card by certain amount and will use this card each time he travels. This is little bit similar to using credit cards.

RFid Based Highway Toll Tax Collection System

Description in detail:

Description in detail: It mainly consist of following blocks

1. Receiver: We are going to use a Infrared receiver. It is used to detect that vehicle has passed away from the electronic toll collection plaza.
2. Transmitter: Infra-Red transmitters used are IR LEDs. IR rays from transmitters are reflected from the vehicle and are received by the receiver.
3. Microcontroller: This is the CPU (central processing unit) of our project. We are going to use a microcontroller of 8051 family. The various functions of microcontroller are like
I. Reading the RFID card number from the RFID reader. II. Sending this data to LCD so that the person operating this project should read various informative messages. III. Sensing the command given using keypad and receiving singnal from the IR receiver. IV. Sending the data to the motor or buzzer depending upon the RFID card number and balance inside the card.
4. LCD: We are going to use 16×2 alphanumeric Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) which means it can display alphabets along with numbers on 2 lines each containing 16 characters.
5. DC motor and Motor Driver: We are going to use a DC motor to open the gate. A motor driver IC is required to drive the motor.
6. RFID card reader: This is one of the most important part of the project. It reads the unique number from the RFID cards and sends it to the microcontroller.

Applications and Advantages:

1. This project can be used in Toll collection plaza on Highway.

2. Can be used in octrai collection booths for faster access.

Future Development:

1. We can send this data to a remote location using mobile or internet

2. Voice alarm system can be added to indicate that room is full & persons cant enter inside.

Video of the project:

Youtube video link coming soon.

Question and answers about this project:

Question: I am from Coimbatore and need a little more advanced version of it which includes a vehicle identification system, vehicle weight detection and much more. Can you provide this?

Answer: Sorry, at present we can’t provide these modifications.

      Hi Shreyas, project details are mentioned above. You will get rest of the documents with the project, like project report, circuit diagram, program. As mentioned above there are main 3 modes of operations, RFID mode, Manual mode and recharge mode.

    How much amount will be in the RFID card? How do you recharge it after the amount is over in the card? Will you first itself recharge the card?

  • 19 October, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    If there is no amount in the card ,the person wont be able to pass through the toll right?

  • 19 October, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    My main questions are if there is no amount in the card will the person be able to pass through the toll?
    And second is in this project will the card you give already be recharged earlier?
    Or will you give a card when shown to the RFID reader, just open the toll?

    • 21 November, 2013 at 5:37 pm

      Hi Nikhil, if there is no balance in card then respective message will be displayed on LCD display and buzzer will be turned on. And person will not be allowed to pass through toll.
      When you turn on the project, at that time each card will have a initial balance of Rs.50. Also we have provided a keypad to recharge the RFID card. You can press recharge key to go into recharge mode.

    May i know the frequency range and distance to detect rfid card from rfid reader?

  • 22 April, 2014 at 11:51 pm

    plz tell something extra which I can add to this . this is must
    plz tell me as soon as possible
