FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – With nearly 50 million vehicles equipped with transponders issued to pass through electronic toll lanes1, states are developing regional interoperability plans to ensure tolling is seamless and fair for all drivers from one state to the next.
Conduent Incorporated (NYSE: CNDT), a leading provider of transportation and mobility solutions, is showcasing how its technology solutions aid in tolling interoperability at this week’s IBTTA Managed Lanes, AET & Technology Summit 2018 taking place in Charlotte, N.C.
The tolling solutions on display in Conduent’s booth include:
- Conduent’s Vehicle Passenger Detection System (VPDS), which uses patented video analytics to identify the number of occupants in a vehicle, allowing transportation and law enforcement agencies to monitor and enforce the use of High Occupancy Vehicle/High Occupancy Toll (HOV/HOT) lanes. This first-to-market HOV/HOT lane compliancy system aims to deter drivers from breaking carpool and Express Toll Lane rules and has achieved a 95 percent accuracy rating at speeds up to 100 mph.
- A Conduent performance monitoring and management system, which is an advanced system monitoring and maintenance online management tool that integrates back office and lane equipment, facility and fleet monitoring, while generating automatic work orders and alerts. Ongoing analysis using advanced data analytics and report generation tools assists operations teams by providing a gauge on how effective their tolling systems are, allowing them to make maintenance program adjustments as needed to improve efficiency. The solution helps agencies perform preventive and predictive maintenance on their systems, and also ensures the information stored is accurate, actionable and auditable for historical reference.
Also at this week’s show, Mark Cantelli, vice president, Technology, Conduent, Public Sector, will take part in a technical breakout session titled, “Back Office Systems” today at 10:30 a.m. ET. During the session, Cantelli and a panel of experts will discuss how CIOs in the tolling industry can deploy a new back office system and support nationwide interoperability with a regional approach.
“The industry’s goal is national tolling interoperability, but to get there, we need to start with regional rollouts,” said Cantelli. “Regional interoperability provides the flexibility drivers need to cross surrounding state lines without the worry of having enough cash or the correct transponder. As more regional hubs are established, the larger goal of national interoperability can be achieved.”
