Company Summary

HOV/HOT lanes are being converted to “dynamic pricing lanes” that charge commuters a toll based on the number of people in a vehicle, average speed, and distance travelled. VODC has the only known patent-pending technology that can provide the vehicle occupancy component. Caltrans has stated a need for 4,000 units. Texas wants to convert 566 miles to dynamic pricing lanes. Applicable for Dept. of Homeland Security and military applications.
