  • Smart tolling, which improved the drawbacks of the existing high-pass system, was developed and built through the Smart Highway R & D project in 2007. In order to successfully introduce and spread Smart Tolling, it is need to analyze factors that affected by intent to use. This study conducted research based on literature studies and empirical studies, and developed a research model to analyze factors affecting the users' intention of smart tolling system based on technology acceptance model (TAM) and value based acceptance model. The main variables of the research model are service characteristics (convenience, reliability), technical characteristics (flexibility, stability), environmental characteristics (switching cost, effectiveness of policy) and intention to use. To test the hypotheses set in this study, frequency analysis, exploratory factor analysis, and confirmatory factor analysis were performed using the SPSS 22.0 program statistical package and AMOSS 18.0. The convenience and reliability presented by service characteristics did not affect the intention to use of smart tolling service.

  • With the rapid deployment of hipass$^{(R)}$, the congestion is inevitable due to the operation of the hipass lane system. Recently, SMART Highway project have developed a multi-lane mainline tolling system, called SMART Tolling system. To analyze the effectiveness of the system in terms of capacity, this study tries to estimate the capacity and its improvement of multi-lane tolling system based on current hipass$^{(R)}$ data. The methodology uses the saturation time headway. This follows three steps; 1) estimate the saturation time headway, using hipass$^{(R)}$ data, and capacity. 2) estimate two factors (the first one is dividing the one side lane width and lateral clearance factor ($f_w$) into two side one, the second one is dividing the capacity of hipass lane operating a circuit breaker into the capacity of hipass lane not operating, the last one is increasing factor of lane width). 3) calculate the capacity of multi-lane mainline tolling system. The results of method produced 2172~2187 veh/hour as smart tolling capacities, respectively. Those are higher about 370 veh/hour than the values from existing literature reviews. Additionally, saturation time headways were identified as lower by 0.5 seconds/veh than existing headways based on hi-pass$^{(R)}$ based one, which naturally implies the improvement in capacity. Some limitations and future research agenda have also been discussed.

  • Intelligent transportation systems are one of the most important new forms of infrastructure on domestic roads, and is a system that makes possible the most efficient movement of vehicles on a road. The High Pass system, which is a domestic intelligent transportation system, started a little later than in other countries but developed at a rapid pace. With the recent introduction of smart tolling technology, it provided an opportunity to stop and review the tolling system. This study aims to investigate the driving method and results of LDCC for domestic smart towing through case study. Unlike other companies, Lotte Data Communication Company has long invested in payment systems. It has little experience investing in infrastructure, but participated in the Smart Toll System at the Gwangan Bridge in cooperation with the Busan City government, to lead the development of intelligent transportation systems. LDCC, which has made new investments, not only exceeded its existing core competencies, but also upgraded Korea's tolling system's ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improved its financial performance.

  • This study addressed the process to construct, operate, verify the test beds, which had been equipped with a variety of core technologies such as WAVE, Road-Radar, Smart Tolling developed by Smart Highway Project. We have met our research goals, but there were limitations to secure the performance and user feedback because of small scale and short operating time. So, we will enhance user safety, convenience and comfort by accumulating and analyzing big data then improving testbeds and related technologies through subsequent research projects for a long time.

  • There is a two lane ECTS(Electronic Toll Collection System) that users can pass with 80kph high speed in SeoBusan Tall Gate. This system to be combined two hi-pass lanes for removing meddle-island have been operated successfully. But, the appearance of two Lane ETCS makes toll gate more complicated, so it is very important how to arrange effectively various tolling lanes. This study was trying to evaluate lane configuration for minimizing speed and speed deviation among all kinds of lanes including two Lane ETCS in seoul toll gate. That is, we selected all scenarios to be happened actually, and evaluated them using micro traffic simulation model (VISSIM). The results of this study showed that each alternative had a very different speed and speed deviation by lane each other, so we will be able to achieve effective operation and configuration of lanes in toll gate using scenario methodology.

  • The Electronic Toll Collection System based on Free-Flow Multi-Lane is needed to solve some yearly problems such as traffic congestion, safety accident, maintenance by hold-up of one way hi-pass system. The hi-pass communication system is first-in, first-out method in one way environment so, it can't handle various running patterns such as vehicle platoon, switching lane and passing in multi-lane environment. In this thesis we compared and analyzed the communication system of foreign countries ETCS operating system and domestic hi-pass communication system, then studied communication system which can run in multiple-way accepting existing hi-pass OBU. And we formed the communication system of Free-Flow Multi-Lane environment as a plan using incoherent of IR antenna and coherent of RF antenna. The communication system in Free-Flow Multi-Lane environment can be used not alone in parking garages but in expressways of ETCS and toll roads from now on.
