Malaysia Rolls Out Touch 'n Go RFID-based Toll-Collection System
The Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) recently implemented RFID-based toll collection across all 62 of its toll plazas on highways throughout the country that utilize an open-toll system. The implementation began on Jan. 1, 2020.
The agency reports that the move is intended to improve traffic flow at toll plazas, since users will not need to stop and tap a Touch 'n Go card at a reader. In addition, the agency explains, the deployment is designed to eliminate issues that were associated with the system previously in place—battery depletion, for example, since RFID stickers do not require batteries.
Touch 'n Go has been conducting public trials since 2018 involving RFID technology, and the agency reports that the number of users registered to utilize the system is currently at more than 830,000. The trial period's extension was so that the company could address several problems, LLM explains. The rollout, according to the agency, is the first step toward the government's planned Multi-lane Free Flow (MLFF) system, which it expects to implement within two years.
