1. SCOPE. Innovative & first of its kind, state of the art, all-in- one system for control and charging of Various forms of road traffic control, Road Toll & Parking fee, traffic control and crisis management using the latest in Wireless Technology and e- Payment method.

2. Objective of this paper: Explain the system and its operation which will be of benefit for the Public, the Government, the Road Traffic Authorities, the Municipalities and Technology Service Providers. Topics covered are: Concept, Technology/Network elements, Principle of operation,  Features, Benefitsand advantages and Business case. The system can help to reduce pollution by autonomously fixing usage time and area etc.

2.1  The Concept: This unique concept will replace current Road Toll fee and Parking fee collection methods with more generalized and simplified method of charging the usage public roads and spaces for commuting and parking of vehicles.

The proprietary idea. There are two ideas. i) A simple and easily implementable one.

  1. ii) A more elaborate and sophisticating technology idea.

i) A simple and easily implementable one. What is needed is a Mobile phone in working condition of any service provider. The simple idea to start with is to have a display board in every parking area with unique short coded call number displayed on it sufficiently bold and large enough with suitably lighting so that it can be seen from certain distance. Any one wanting to park in a allowed parking space shall call this Unique short code  and enter the vehicle number. For example *A general access code*Short code of parking zone*Vehicle number# That is all.  Vehicle number can be linked with UUI (Aadhar) to prevent fraud.Car Parking Charging ppt(1) If the driver of the cars calling from the same place where the car is parked, he can simply dial a common access code and leave. Give call again from same when taking the car from parking.  System will identify calling number, Vehicle Number, date & time etc., and  location and start charging and inform the user with a return message. While taking out the vehicle again repeat same procedure to end charging. The system will calculate charge according to place, time of the day and duration and debit it your phone account or a special purpose prepaid account and send a message about the duration and amount charged. Car Parking Charging ppt The officers checking can merely dial the car number to the system and concur the user had complied the process. While parking vehicle owner leaves a plaque “Parking Authorized” near to the wind shield.  As a matter of trust the inspecting officer need check at random. Such a system can be easily implemented in any place. ii) The other system is more elaborate and use more resources to implement is explained in detail below.

The key break through is in the unique idea of “Uniform Charging for Road and Parking space usage with built-in safeguard against non compliance and fraud”.   

Allowing usage only on predetermined days.

The same arrangement as mentioned above can be used for restricting of Cars or Vehicles on particular day  to prevent excess pollution or limit traffic overload etc.  Same way as in the case of parking,  a different access code is used while taking the Vehicle. System has data to identify whether particular vehicle is eligible for road use that day and returns an ‘OK to use message’. Else a ‘Not eligible to use” message and asks to pay a pre-defined fine for exceptional cases and then sends message allowing usage as “Emergency use” or  “Exempted as Special case”

Driver places a bold placard in the windshield for the inspecting officer to see. It can be cross verified by the officer by dialing the registered number of the vehicle and fraud is dealt heavily.
