BMS installs fully automatic licence plate recognition system in South Carolina


South Carolina’s Southern Connector has signed a 5 year contract with BIT Mobility Solutions (BMS), a subsidiary of the BRISA Group (Portugal), with total value of $ 2 million.

Southern Connector needed to adopt a new back office system for improved effectiveness and efficiency in revenue collection and to minimise toll violations.

The 16-mile long Southern Connector Toll Road in South Carolina, USA, currently operates 16 lanes  –  4 Open Road Tolling (ORT) , 4 Automated Coin Machine (ACM) and 8 manuals – in both main plazas and 4 tolled ramp lanes with both ORT and ACM systems in place. Operations are done using a team of 28 collectors and supervisors working in shifts.

BIT Mobility Solutions capabilities in technological solutions for tolling and operation management systems were put to action, supplying a new Tolling back office and requalifying roadside equipment, involving both integration of legacy components and supply of new subsystems.

This solution includes: Integration services; Digital cameras; Vehicle classification system; Lane controllers; Licence Plate recognition system; New Backoffice; Image Review system.
