In the state of Maharashtra, the commercial capital state of India, Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation, MSRDC, is in the process of modernizing the state’s border checkpoints. In the past, formalities were manually processed resulting in high processing times and traffic jams at the stations. The new border control system utilizes passive UHF RFID based Automatic Vehicle Identification technology that enables both reliable large scale vehicle and traffic management as well as enhanced traffic flow.
The Windshield Label is issued and affixed on each vehicle’s windshield and automatically read when the vehicle approaches the checkpoint. The RFID reader setup is set at the side of each lane and the system also uses cameras for identifying and verifying the vehicle’s license plate number.
The required vehicle information; tax, insurance, permit, pollution and driver, is instantly retrieved from the central database. This allows border officers to make quick decisions regarding the border control.
