Malaysia North-South Avenue will officially launch RFID payment system from 2020
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an automatic identification technology that uses radio signals to identify specific targets and read related data. When the driver passes the RFID channel, the system can automatically read the RFID tag data and then deduct the toll fee through the electronic wallet (Touch'n Go eWallet).
In order to ease the problem of traffic jams at the toll gates of the avenue, the Malaysian government will implement the RFID payment toll system at all open-to-llll stations on the North-South Avenue from January 1, 2020, and the closed toll station on the North-South Avenue. (Closed-toll) will be implemented on April 1, 2020.
Open-toll means that when a motorist passes through an avenue toll booth, the toll will be deducted directly. Conversely, a Closed-toll means that when a motorist passes through the first avenue toll booth, it is not directly deducted from the toll, but is charged for the toll when leaving the highway.
The RFID system combines the features of Touch'n Go and SmartTAG. Drivers can pass through the toll booth without having to drive the window or install a battery, which is very convenient!
