New Smart Method of contactless payment in HOV lanes (High Ocuppancy Vehicles)

Summary of the technology

The whole method is embedded into an smartphone App. The method considers two options: Computing the total cost independently of the entry point and computing the total cost depending of the entry point. The method allows user authentification into a certification authority. Pre-paid cards can be used to buy credit.

Description of the technology

We have developed a new toll collection method to be used in SMART cities and tollroad scenarios. The method can be used as a contacless payment method in High Ocuppancy Vehicles (HOV) lanes in cities and highways. The method preserves privacy of passengers and can be implemented and used without need of additional tools in the vehicle.


Our method combines a new cipher primitive based in identity-based dynamic threshold signature with a new technique of key distribution to automatize the payment. NFC as well as Bluetooth are used as a communication technology.
