  • 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.
