A toll road, also known as a turnpike or toll way, is a public or private roadway for which a fee (or toll) is assessed for way. It is a form of road pricing typically implemented to help convalesce the cost of road structure and protection, which (on public roads) amounts to a form of taxation. Toll roads in some form have survive since antiquity, collecting their fees from passing travelers on foot, wagon or horseback; but their significance increased with the rise of the automobile, and modern toll ways collect their fees from motor vehicles completely. The amount of the toll usually varies by vehicle type, weight, or number of axles, with shipment trucks often stimulating higher rates than cars. It is composed at toll-collection points known as toll booths, houses, plazas, stations, bars or gates. Some toll-collection points are unmanned and the user deposit money in a pot which measures the amount and allows passage or entry if enough. To cut cost and minimize time delay many tolls today are composed with some form of automatic or electronic toll group utilizing electronic communication from a toll payer's transponder and the toll collection system. The paper presents a new way for electronic toll collection system and to match car number plate finding system. The electronic toll collection system (ETS) has been made-up based on microcontroller. Here a system is developed to collect tolls according to the weight of the vehicle. The car number plate detection method utilizes template matching method to estimate the location of car number plate. Then, using this output from the template identical method, color information is used to eliminate the unnecessary color areas from the estimated number plate region without disturbing the correct color regions. Hence, the number plate region can be resolute more precisely. This work can easily be done by image processing system using MATLAB. The method has low difficulty and reduced the processing time magnificently. This automated system also shows a better appearance in highway traffic management. This paper shows the gateway to fabricate a highly mechanical toll-plaza.
