Tecsidel is awarded its first Toll Collection System (TCS) project in USA by Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority (www.ccrma.org). This project has started in November 2017 and consists of the supply, implementation and maintenance of the TCS for the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge, in Hidalgo County (Texas). The Pharr Reynosa International Bridge serves as the 6th largest port of entry in the USA and ranks #1 in the import of fresh fruits and vegetables for the third year in a row. This bridge continues to break import-export records by crossing an annual average of $30 billion in trade with Mexico and the world.
The installation comprises 1 plaza and 4 mixed lanes: Manual + Automatic Vehicle Identification, and the system integrates 2 levels:
- Detection, classification, control and recording of vehicle transits. Collection of toll fees.
- Detection and recording of possible abnormalities on transits, and alerts to the Plaza and/or Central System.
- Data acquisition, surveillance and recording of the information generated by the Lane.
- Control and monitoring of lane operability. Processing, analysis and reporting of anomalies.
The modular design of Tecsidel Toll + system ensures scalability and high flexibility enabling the use of different hardware providers without affecting the lane logic. Lane logic works in a higher level and with generic interfaces that allow adaptability and easy integration of new lanes and plazas.
The project also includes Tecsidel Maintenance Management System Plus (TMMS+) The main purpose of this computerised system is to obtain the maximum effectiveness in terms of time and logistics for maintenance actions performed by the maintenance ground staff. TMMS+ offers the ability to monitor vital system components and generate automatic alarms and events. These components include:
Toll Systems Equipment: Lasers, Barriers, Antennas, Treadles, Loops, OCR, Automatic Payment Machines, control cabinets, etc.
Hardware-Software applications: Memory usage, CPU, disk space availability, server performance, database efficiency, etc.
TMMS+ is 100% customizable, allowing configuration of all parameters and evolving according to the Concessionaires needs.
