Description of the project:

Electronic toll collection 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.

Automatic toll collection 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. And then the RFID based automatic gate control system will open the gate to pass through.
Second benefit is that driver doesn’t have to carry the money each time. He/she 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.

You will get a CD with this project:

CD contains following things:


  1. Project Report in pdf format and in word format ( .doc or .docx )
  2. Circuit diagram
  3. PCB layout
  4. Microcontroller Program in assembly language
  5. Hex file of the Microcontroller code
  6. Datasheets of all the components / ICs used in the project
  7. Power point presentation / PPT file

Description in detail:

Description in detail: It mainly consist of following blocks

1. Receiver: We are going to use an 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 signal 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. RFID automated gate project can be used in Toll collection plaza on Highway.

2. RFID based automatic gate can be used in octroi collection booths for faster access.

Future Development for the project:

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

2. Voice alarm system can be added to indicate that card has insufficient balance & persons can’t pass through RFID based automatic toll gate system.

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.

Question: If there is no amount in the card will the person be able to pass through the toll? And the second question 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?

Answer: If there is no balance in the RFID card then respective message will be displayed on LCD display and buzzer will be turned on. And the person or the car will not be allowed to pass through toll. When you turn on the project, at that time each card will have an 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..

    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?

  • 2 January, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    how to recharge the rfid card?

  • 6 January, 2014 at 12:47 pm

    I want to buy this project…but before that i want to clear some queries..
    Can we interface this project with pc n how?
    Can we generate analysis report of how many cars passed throug toll?
    What language u r using for this implementation in pc java or .net?
    What language is used to code microcontroller?

  • 6 January, 2014 at 12:53 pm

    If i buy this project and before my exam if any of the component from circiut damages then it would make condition severe for me..so will u provide some xtra components along with circiut like n all??

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

  • 5 February, 2014 at 9:21 am

    The Amount recharged is stored in the microcontroller , so when there is power interruption the amount stored will get erased .
    if yes pls let me know , i need this project urgently

    Hi…I like this project & I would like to know some information regarding shipping & equipment you provide . . .

  • 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

  • 31 July, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    sir I want to.know that is rfid.good.for an diploma basis or only for be??

    • 31 July, 2014 at 5:12 pm

      Hi Sanket Shah, RFID based projects are good for Diploma and also they are good for BE students.

  • 10 October, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    As u said, if there is no balance in the rfid card then the vechcle does not pass through the gate. So if da vehicle does not pass through the tollgate then what about the remaining vehicles that are back of the present car. there will be no way for the other vehicles to pass through the gate till the present car passes the gate right..?? Is there any solution to overcome this problem……
    Please reply…..

    is it possible to in arm 7 based instead of 8051

  • 7 February, 2015 at 2:33 pm

    is it a complete hardware project or a part of the software included..if included what on what domain or platform the software is developed..pls rply asap..thank u..

  • 13 March, 2015 at 10:29 am

    is this possible get the hardware offline or directly from your place

  • 24 April, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    Sir i would like to order this project, so if u give d how to order..and more information giving to d CD means vedios pls tell me..

  • 24 April, 2015 at 8:41 pm

    which micro controllers can be used for automatic toll tax system using rfid

  • 27 July, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    Sir , I am Pallavi I have question is wat is the platform used, project contributions also extra curricula tell me fast on my mail sir.

  • 11 August, 2015 at 11:03 am

    can we know how to measure the weight of the vehicle?

  • 22 October, 2015 at 5:05 pm

    Hi! if there is no amount in the card and the car is at the toll plaza, how will it exit it? This then causes more taffic and beats the purpose of time and fuel saving. Is there any solution you can suggest?
