DALLAS, TX—Sirit has entered into an OEM agreement with Dallas-based EFKON USA, a provider of intelligent transportation systems and advanced vehicle communications. Under the terms of the agreement, EFKON will integrate Sirit's Title 21-based toll tag technology into a range of new toll products that it unveiled at the International Bridge, Tunnel, and Turnpike Assn.'s 74th Annual Meeting and Exhibition in Dallas.
EFKON's newly announced products include Pront, a high-performance toll tag system used for open road tolling, and can also be used for parking access control; and HOTShot, a battery- and solar-powered system for high occupancy tolling (HOT) that uses smart cards and biometric identification for virtually failsafe authentication. Sirit's underlying 915 MHz toll technology, based exclusively on the open Title 21 standard, provides the platform for these solutions.
