Sirit Corp. announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply ISO-18000-6C RFID tolling technology to Washington State Department of Transportation.
For the initial contract that is valued at approximately $2.8 million, Sirit will provide its Identity 5200 readers and transponders for the SR 520 bridge in Seattle, as well as the existing SR 167 HOT lanes.
Sirit will provide toll readers, along with both standard and self declaration transponders, for a toll collection system on SR 520 across Lake Washington. The system will automatically identify and classify each vehicle traveling in both directions at a single location on the highway and capture the transponder identification number.
This Sirit solution is designed for long-range, high speed vehicle identification and tolling applications. The readers and tags are based on open standards and incorporate multiple protocols to enable interoperability with legacy tolling systems in Washington State, while ensuring that any future features and capabilities can be added.
