Objectives: Road Transport is the primary source which is contributing to poor air quality. We propose, an Intelligent Toll Booth System to automate toll transactions and monitor the smoke emission from vehicles. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The automated toll operations are done based on the prepaid toll transaction card which is a passive RFID tag. The toll road usage is allowed based on the credit limit of the tag. The smoke sensor detects the amount of Carbon dioxide (CO2 ) exhausted from the vehicle. If it is beyond the specified range, a warning message is given to the vehicle possessor and to the respective transport office through GSM. Results: Intelligent Toll Booth System is validated to be more powerful, helpful and efficient than normal system for vehicle emission monitoring and prepaid toll transaction. It is apparent that our intelligent system proves to be more time conserving system and reduces the traffic congestion at toll booths, reduced labour and cost. Investigative results reveal that the proposed framework is viable for vehicle emission monitoring and prepaid toll transactions. Also this system agrees portability and needs very slight effort for smoke emission monitoring and toll transactions. Conclusion/Application: The proposed Intelligent Toll Booth system provides an efficient toll transaction method and smoke emission monitoring thereby reducing the congestion at toll booths.
