  • Abstract:
    In December 2007, the N.Y.S. Thruway Authority (“Thruway”) concluded a Federal funded research effort to study technology and develop a design for retrofitting devices required in implementing a fully automated vehicle classification system in Thruway toll plazas and barriers. A project team consisting of representatives of all functional business areas affected by this project was formed and research occurred under the guidance and direction of a Steering Committee consisting of Executives from each major business area (Finance, Operations/Maintenance, Engineering, Information Technology, Legal and the Chief of Staff). The research performed focused on technology available within the current market and study of infrastructure to identify how the technology could be retrofit into the Thruway’s toll plazas. The research successfully yielded selection of technology that will provide a fully automated system that classifies vehicles according to the Thruway’s toll structure. Additionally, the research team developed a highly efficient design for incorporating the technology within the Thruway’s 50+ year old toll infrastructure. The Key Findings section of this document details the positive results of this research effort.
