London Congestion Charge on RFID
August 18, 2004
Silicon.com reports that Transport for London (TfL), the integrated body responsible for London's transport system, is considering to spend up to £34m on new digital enforcement technologies for the Congestion Charging Scheme (CCS), which could include radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. Surprisingly, Silicon quotes: "A Tfl spokesman said it was not viable to use this technology when the congestion charge began in 2003." Surprising, because companise like QFree have been in business for almost 20 years already.
