The Q-Free EIP solution ensures that all video based transactions captured at the MDX tolling lanes will be converted into billable transactions or violations. After the initial implementation, Q-Free will support and operate the system on behalf of the customer for a period of 2 years. Optional, and upon joint agreement, the contract can be extended for up to two more years.
“This contract is evidence of Q-Free’s global leadership in road user charging solutions based on video and imaging technology. Q-Free has supplied core Automatic License Plate Registration (ALPR) software to the US market for years and hence providing us a solid foundation to extend our opportunities by offering more advanced higher value add solutions like the EIP system”, says CEO Dr. Øyvind Isaksen. ”The USA is the world’s largest Road User Charging market and we see a clear trend in the US towards free flow All Electronic Tolling systems.

The project will start immediately. The EIP system is planned to go live in Q1-2014.
