 A highway toll collection system is implemented in almost every highway. This is an important component of the modern Intelligent Transportation System. The regular way of toll collection is by paying manually. This intelligent toll collection system is a technology in which the image of the license plate is captured and processed. When the vehicle crosses the toll booth, it is sensed by the pressure sensor placed on the hump. When it is detected, the camera will capture the image of the license plate. The vehicle owners account details is linked to the RTO database. Thus by processing the image captured the vehicle owner’s account is detected and the toll will be collected automatically. Whenever a vehicle approaches the toll booth, the camera will start to capture the images and stores them. The camera should be able to capture good quality images irrespective of the external factors. It should be able to know the number plates from different countries as well. Thus database should contain the information of every vehicle owners.
