Kapsch Is Chosen to Complete The AET Conversion Of New Hampshire's Turnpikes

Kapsch TrafficCom announced that the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) has selected the company to convert the turnpike interchanges at Dover, Rochester, and Bedford to all-electronic, open-road tolling. NHDOT previously chose Kapsch to convert its Hampton and Hooksett toll points. The sites now designated for conversion “will each feature single-gantry architecture that contains all tolling equipment. The Kapsch nVDC stereoscopic video sensor will trigger license plate reading (ALPR) cameras while supporting vehicle detection and classification, along with sensors and in-pavement treadles. The Kapsch VRX camera will facilitate video tolling for vehicles that do not have a toll transponder,” according to the company’s news release. “As part of the project, Kapsch will also enhance its existing multiprotocol readers (MPR2.3) along NHDOT toll sites, enabling the agency to process all tolling protocols and support the goal of national tolling interoperability.” JB Kendrick, Kapsch TrafficCom North America’s president, said “The introduction of new free-flow traffic lanes at all NHDOT toll sites will offer drivers increased convenience and faster journeys, and we are glad to partner with NHDOT in this effort by expanding our proven AET solution. . . .”
