1.2 PROBLEM STATEMENT
Malaysian Expressway nowadays becomes one of the busiest expressways in Asia. The major factors includes the increasing number of vehicles along federal routes, opening of major ports and airports in Malaysia and the increasing population in major cities and towns of Malaysia. This is the reason why it always jammed and congested when the user want to make payment at toll point especially during peak time and peak season such as Hari Raya Holiday. Currently, the Electronic Toll Collection System (ETC) that used today using cash, touch n go and smart tag.
Normally, most of the users using cash payment but the transaction will take longer time. For touch n go, it is more convenient than cash because user no longer need to prepare for small change or wait in queue at the cash lane to complete the transaction. But this method also needs a process to touch the screen and consume time as well, but it takes less time compared to cash payment. Smart Tag can be described as the fastest way to make payment which allow user to pay toll with drive-through convenience but the device for this method is expensive. Both Touch n Go and SmartTag maybe have possibility in security problem. For example, if the card had scratched or lost, maybe the user can’t use that application and need to report for the replacement.
Online Toll Payment System (OTOPS) added better alternative to solve this entire problem because it is only uses the device which the users already have such as internet and mobile phones and payment can be made even before they drive. Furthermore, using plate number as recognition considered as are non-repudiation method to recognize the vehicles.
