Federal Signal Technologies Awarded Turkish Electronic Toll Collection Project

IRVINE, Calif., July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Federal Signal Technologies (FSTech) and its Turkish integration partner, Litum Technologies, today announced that they have been awarded a nationwide contract by VENDEKA Bilgi Teknolojileri to transition Turkey's in-lane Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system infrastructure to ISO 18000-6C.  With 580 lanes, it will be the first electronic toll collection project using passive UHF RFID technology in Europe.

The current tolling system employs a free-flow active microwave system along with a barrier system that processes payment using proximity cards. In addition to upgrading the existing 5.8 GHz free flow lanes to ISO 18000-6C technology, FSTech will provide an end-to-end solution converting 580 proximity card lanes to electronic tolling. This solution consists of Sirit readers, PIPS cameras, Idris vehicle classification, and lane controller technology specifically developed for this project.  

"We are pleased to have the support and confidence from Turkish authorities to upgrade the present electronic toll collection system infrastructure. The ISO 18000-6C UHF RFID technology continues to gain global momentum as it delivers a unique blend of superior system performance and competitive cost advantages.  That is a very compelling reason for any concessionaire, toll agency or toll operator worldwide to adopt this proven technology," commented Manfred Rietsch, President of FSTech.
