NLEX Corp. said it has completed the upgrading of its RFID at the toll lane level throughout the entire North Luzon Expressway and Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) network aimed at boosting detection capability and improving the overall customer experience.
The company said the number of NLEX-SCTEX toll lanes with advanced reading feature increased to 188 as 132 antennas were realigned last year. It also added 56 toll lanes this year.
The RFID upgrading project involved a thorough engineering review that identified the best possible positioning of the antennas and sensors to quickly detect the RFID stickers installed in customers’ vehicles.
Compared to the previous setup, the enhanced RFID scanners can detect up to three vehicles in advance, quickly identify, record 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,” said NLEX president and general manager J. Luigi L. Bautista.
