RFID for Munich Toll System?

May 24, 2004

Members of the Green Party in Munich have proposed an RFID-based toll system for the central area of the Bavarian Capital. The traffic experts of the party want to establish a Pay-per-use-system: When citizens try to pass into the centre of the city, their RFID-chips are billed by contactless readers. Photos of the licence plate number shall be taken, if the available credit sum of RFID chip is not sufficient.

The German Government currently tries to establish a Motorway toll system for trucks,, based on GPS satellite technologies.

Sounds a bit like the Q-Free system developed by Norwegian Q-Free / MicroDesign [1].

Singapore does this for their city center--since 1999 at least.
