An RFID based Toll Payment System for Green World

M. W. Raad, Tarek R. Sheltami

Abstract

As the urbanization and fast-i.mproving quality of life raises the energy consumption, over 72% of carbon emissions come from cities. With the current petrol-powered cars on the road, there are large amounts of CO2 emissions, which pollute the atmosphere resulting in what is called global warming. At the same time, the advent in technology has brought up emerging technologies like Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), wireless sensor networks, and Internet of Things (IOT), which found their way in tracking everything particularly in supply chain and manufacturing. In this paper, the research focuses on the state-of -the art technologies used to reduce Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions in traffic congested areas. It is based on developing a prototype of a wireless sensor module based on RFID technology to mitigate the CO2 footprint in the environment interfaced to an access control toll payment system in parking lots.
