In this paper, the authors establish a new mobile Electronic Toll Collection (m-ETC) by integrating mobile communication with Radio Frequency (RF) communication on microprocessor control with an e-commerce business model. A simple ETC system architecture and protocol for e-transactions from vehicles to toll stations is proposed to complete toll interaction on wireless environment. A software flow through Internet is developed to link from toll station Road-Side Units (RSU) to car units. A Car Unit (CU) for vehicle, a pair of Road-Side Units (RSU), and an e-Center are established.
