Abstract: With the major growth in roadways, there is a raise in the number of toll booths. These toll booths have lengthy queues, the time consumed in paying cash and returning change causes additional delay. In this paper, a system uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, ARM LPC2148, GSM, relay and computer host. RFID is used to obtain the vehicle number. RFID card with unique id is mounted on every vehicle, data contain on the card is examined by the RFID scanner placed at the toll gate. If the vehicle belongs to authorized person or registered, fixed money is automatically deducted from the owners account, message will be send to registered mobile number and automatically toll gate is opened. In this project Rs.50 is deducted for car and Rs.100 is deducted for bus. If the account balance becomes insufficient then buzzer is alarmed, message will be sent to the owner that she/he has insufficient balance and should use manual toll payment. If the vehicle belongs to higher officials such as VIP, police, army, ministers or ambulance the toll gate is opened automatically and the amount is not deducted. For upcoming situation all vehicle information that passes the toll will be stored. Stolen vehicle directory is also present, if the card number of the vehicle matches then buzzer is alarmed, message will be sent to the registered police station, amount is deducted from owner’s account and gate is opened. The advantage is that message is sent both to the owner and police station. Coding is done in Embedded C. This system eliminate the manual cash handling, reduces traffic congestion and help in lesser fuel utilization. This makes automatic toll collection more convenient for the public use.
