INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION PAYMENT SYSTEMS

Integrated Payment Systems (IPS) represent a key technology for electronic commerce in a wide range of sectors. IPS for transportation, based on modern electronic and information technology allow new forms of revenue generation critical to the planning, design, construction, rehabilitation and maintenance of our aging infrastructure.  Such payment systems are also able to increase the efficiency of our transportation systems for consumers. However, in order to gain broad acceptance, these systems must be secure and preserve privacy, with challenges arising due to the low-cost, low-power and distributed nature of the systems.

This small, informal workshop brings together people from industry, government and academia.  Goals will be to identify future challenges in security and privacy for integrated payment systems across various modes of transportation including transit, tolls, parking, etc. RFID-based technologies will likely play a key role in these payment systems. The workshop will include one day of invited talks, panel discussions, and breakout sessions. A tentative list of questions we are going to discuss in the scope of our breakout sessions can be found here

The workshop will be invitation-only. If you have not received an invitation but are interested in attending the workshop, please contact one of the organizers.

This workshop is funded by a UMASS President's Office Science and Technology Award.
