OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for ITS, tolling, and Connected Vehicles, announces that one of the world’s leaders in electronic toll collection, FETC, International Co.,Ltd. has joined OmniAir® as an Associate-Level Member. Based in New Taipei City, Taiwan, the company is a total solutions provider, with deep expertise in RFID-based electronic toll collection and smart cities.
A wholly-owned subsidiary to its parent company, Far Eastern Electronic Toll Collection Company (FETC) planned, built and operates Taiwan’s state-of-the-art electronic toll collection (ETC) system, with 16 million daily transactions. The company also offers tolling products and solutions, ranging from tags and readers to back-office management systems.
“We are excited to have a global leader in tolling like FETC International, Co. as OmniAir’s first new member of 2020,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director of OmniAir Consortium. “FETC’s expertise and experience will help OmniAir to fulfill its mission of promoting interoperability and certification for ITS, tolling, and connected vehicles around the world.”
Since its establishment in 2004, FETC was officially commissioned by the Taiwan government to build and operate the ETC system and associated service operation for a nationwide freeway network. In early 2006, FETC successfully launched Single Lane Free Flow (SLFF) ETC operation in 23 toll plazas.
Later when RFID-based ETC technology was made available to the general public in 2012, the rapid increase in utilization rate allowed Freeway Bureau, MOTC and FETC to migrate to distance-based and multi-lane free flow (MLFF) ETC December 30th, 2013.
Currently, more than 7 million customers traverse the 331 MLFF gantries generating more than 6 billion accumulated transactions.
FETC is one of the 200 affiliated companies in Far Eastern Group (FEG).
