Audi Launches the First Integrated-Toll Payment technology in US

The German prestigious brand announced on Wednesday that Audi launches the first integrated-toll payment technology in US on select vehicles this year. Normally, drivers should register with a state’s tolling agency and receive the proper transponder to use a fast lane. Or, drivers must actually stop the vehicle to pay a toll with cash. This new technology is called the Integrated Toll Module (ITM). The Integrated Toll Module will keep drivers from managing multiple toll accounts across state lines. The ITM is created the rearview mirror and functions as a transponder that can connect with toll systems. The automaker isn’t specific on details, but the ITM promised to open the agencies throughout the U.S as well as Canada and Mexico. Car drivers will be able to control the system from the vehicle’s settings. Options will include turning the system on or off, and adjusting occupant settings for HOV\HOT lanes. Audi did not correctly say which vehicle will feature the system, but we assume that some of the brand’s latest and most luxurious vehicles will include the system as standard. The technology was created by Gentex Corporation for Audi. Gentex also offers auto-dimming mirrors for all Audi vehicles.
