Abstract
DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communications) is a well known widespread technology. One of the main applications of DSRC is RTTT (Road Transport and Traffic Telematics), especially EFC (Electronic Fee Collection) on tolled roads, bridges or tunnels. Other vehicle-related applications had been envisaged, such as car parking or fuel refilling automatic payment. These applications were successfully developed, deployed and are in current use in Portugal. In this paper we present a low-cost, complete DSRC chain developed by the authors that is compatible with the existing DSRC systems already in use.
