NLEX upgrades RFID detection capability

MANILA, Philippines — The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), a unit of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp., has upgraded its RFID (radio frequency identification) detection capability to improve customer experience at the toll gates.

The NLEX said it has finished installing RFID early detection features in 188 toll lanes, completing the current RFID upgrading project at the toll lane level throughout the NLEX and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway network.

The project involved a thorough engineering review that identified the best possible positioning of RFID antennas and sensors to quickly detect RFID stickers in vehicles.

Compared to the previous setup, the enhanced RFID scanners can detect up to three vehicles in advance and quickly identify and process the toll lane transactions.

“Part of our commitment to our customers is to consistently improve our electronic systems and services, providing them with a better experience each time they travel,” NLEX president and general manager Luigi Bautista said.

Aside from the RFID system upgrade, NLEX also installed driver-friendly contactless terminals to address RFID scanner glitches.

Customers simply need to tap their Easytrip card at these terminals to avoid unnecessary queuing at the toll lanes.– Ramon Efren Lazaro
