While many countries have introduced ETC (Electronic Toll Collection system) for reducing the cost of toll collection, improving service time and environmental burden, some countries that have not yet introduced ETC accelerate to innovate this system actively. In each country, the communication method for ETC is different, for example passive DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication) and active DSRC etc. Some countries need not only high performance but also cost-effective, a variety of installation methods and easy maintenance. In this situation, we have developed "ETC system using RFID tag" of 900MHz frequency band that fulfills these requirements. And we have evaluated performance of our ETC system based RFID tag on actual roads in Asian countries. As a result, performance of our system is as high as other ETC systems. In this paper we report the characteristics of this system and evaluation results on actual roads.
