Q-Free intends to use its appearance at the ITS World Congress to reflect a broader and more accurate reality of the company’s strength and capabilities. That’s not going to be difficult, if one considers the technological and geographical diversity of the company’s success since the beginning of this year alone.
In March, Q-Free was awarded the contract for delivery of the congestion charging infrastructure for the Swedish city of Gothenburg which includes road side equipment, infrastructure and service and maintenance. Also in March, Brisbane Airport Corporation in Australia awarded a contract for the design and construction of an electronic access fee collection system for taxis and ground transportation operators, similar to the DSRC-based system already deployed at Sydney Airport Corporation by Q-Free.
A few weeks earlier, Q-Free won two AutoPASS contracts from in Norway to design, deliver and install two fully automated tolling systems, while in France, Portugal, and Spain the company received major toll tag (OBU) orders in the last few months from Vinci, Via Verdi, and Abertis respectively. Meanwhile, in the Far East, Q-Free is developing an innovative electronic law enforcement (ELE) system based on the company’s latest tolling technology.
