New system will replace all roadside tolling equipment with latest RFID toll

Government Contracts/Contracts

Vienna/McLean (US) - The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) has awarded
Kapsch TrafficCom (Kapsch) a contract to replace and maintain all roadside
tolling equipment in the mixed-mode, cash, and express toll lanes under MDTA
management. The contract commenced in February 2018 and includes the replacement
of all toll equipment, expected to be converted to the Kapsch system by 2020,
and six years of subsequent operations and maintenance as well as the option to
extend the contract for additional four years. The project volume of the base
contract exceeds EUR 55 million and will be managed locally from the Kapsch
office in Rockville, Maryland.

The new roadside equipment will include RFID toll readers, automated license
plate recognition (ALPR) cameras, and scanners in the mixed-mode lanes. In
addition, Kapsch will install its stereoscopic Vehicle Detection and
Classification sensor (nVDC) in the all-electronic toll (AET) lanes. The nVDC is
a 3D video-based sensor that can track and classify vehicles throughout the
entire toll zone while triggering ALPR cameras. Trip-building will be a feature
of the new toll system, a proven Kapsch solution in which individual vehicle
transactions at toll points are grouped into sets of continuous trips, and that
correlate with transponder reads and license plate numbers to produce a single
billable trip for a vehicle's entire journey. As part of the system replacement,
Kapsch will also provide license plate image-review services and fully-formed
transactions to the MDTA back office, enhancing accuracy and auditability of the
tolling system.

MDTA Deputy Executive Director Deb Sharpless stated: "Reliability, collaboration
and flexibility will drive this transformation and will allow us to meet the
evolving needs of our customers, adapt to changing technologies, and positively
impact Maryland's economy."

"Kapsch roadside equipment and innovative trip-building features are designed to
offer customers an increased level of service with enhanced functionality and a
proven solution," said Georg Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch TrafficCom. "With this
project we bring the MDTA toll system to a leading standard in all-electronic
tolling and are strengthening our core business in North America."
