Uruguay Deploys Sirit IDentity 5100 Based Tolling System

Sirit equipment enables single centralized automatic vehicle identification solution
Sirit Inc. (Sirit), a global provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, announced that its IDentity 5100 readers and transponders have been selected for deployment on the only automated toll road in Uruguay.

CorporaciĆ³n Vial del Uruguay (CVU), a government agency responsible for overseeing Uruguays National Highway Concession program, has finalized plans to upgrade the Toll Collection System in all of the toll plazas operating in Uruguay, selecting Sirit IDentity 5100 readers and transponders, which are based on ISO 18000-6C open protocol and designed for long-range, high speed automatic vehicle identification (AVI) applications.

The automated toll system installation is a cooperative effort between Telsis S.A, a Uruguay based company, and Telectronica (www.telectronica.com), a company with AVI installations in South America and Mexico, in conjunction with support from Sirit.

The selection process for the AVI system was managed by CVU, who conducted a thorough evaluation of potential AVI solutions and narrowed the equipment down to two suppliers. Both prospective systems were installed and comprehensive tests were carried out in the presence of officials and technical staff from each of the participating organizations. In the final evaluation, Sirits IDentity 5100 solution was selected for its advanced performance and reliability.

The selection of the Sirit IDentity 5100 readers and transponders as the solution of choice recognizes the superior performance of Sirits AVI products and confirms the industrys move towards standards-based solutions for global AVI applications, said Wolf Bielas, President, Latin America, Sirit.

Phase one of the deployment included 12 readers and 20,000 transponders operating on Uruguays main highway, connecting the City of Montevideo with the City of Punta del Este. At the completion of phase two of the installation by mid-2009, a total of 40 readers will be installed connecting the entire road system in Uruguay with a single centralized AVI system using Sirit readers and tags.

Whats exciting about the installation is the fact that Uruguay will be using a single RFID system enabling the use of the existing infrastructure and paving the way to deploying solutions for a number of other applications, such as parking, heavy vehicle weight systems and truck identification, said Edgardo Ventura, President, Telectronica.
