Back end News: Waze announces RFID updates on the app for better navigation
18/12/2020 – 09:25
Navigation app Waze has announced recently radio-frequency identification (RFID) updates to help provide better routes for users.
As part of the efforts in fighting COVID-19, the Philippines’ Department of Transportation (DOTr) recently mandated toll road operators to implement a cashless and contactless payment scheme. Motorists are now required to have RFID stickers installed on their vehicles. The new Waze feature allows drivers with an RFID sticker to add their local passes such as AutoSweep and EasyTrip on the app by adding it on the Toll and HOV passes settings. It will also route them to toll roads that are accessible to their registered passes.
