The initial Tolling and Emerging Payment Technologies Working Group meeting took place last week and had a strong showing with representatives from E-Zpass, GeoToll, MET Labs, AECOM, Kapsch, TransCore, Spirent, and Carma. The meeting led by Ted Osinski of MET Labs, acting chair, focused on several goals established by the committee.
The group also began looking at short and long-term objectives.
It is not too late to help shape the focus and direction of the working group and help develop answers to inquiries received concerning mutli-protocol reader certification and how does OmniAir assess? How does the reader prioritize the protocols and how can it be tested? Is there a standard way of testing, or do we have to rely on specific reader implementation? Should there be interference tests and if so, how do you test for it? These are just a few items this group will be working to solve. If you would like to contribute to this working group, contact Kate Oldham, OmniAir’s Director of Member Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
