Key Products
Originally conceived for highway access toll collection, automatic tolling systems are now enabling a growing range of digital payment services when accessing restricted areas, parking lots, toll bridges and other controlled areas, including zones subject to congestion charges or urban toll schemes.  The technology used for electronic toll collection (ETC) and open road tolling (ORT) systems relies on a dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) wireless data link between the vehicle and the toll gate that enables a secure identification and payment process.

Our products and solutions

ST supports developers build advanced automated tolling systems with an extensive range of dedicated wireless connectivity ICs, MEMS inertial sensors, and secure elements as well as highly secure smartcard and radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags and readers.
