Because RFID system has: vehicle-road communication, automatic identification, point positioning, remote detection and visualization functions, so in the mobile vehicle automatic identification and management system has a broad application market, has become one of the important application technologies of intelligent transportation, its applications include: Intelligent parking lot management, intelligent vehicle traffic management, vehicle scheduling management, port and dock vehicle management, intelligent vehicle weighing management, intelligent bus management, illegal vehicle inspection management, customs vehicle clearance management, vehicle exhaust emission control management, etc.
RFID system through vehicle-road communication to achieve intelligent management of vehicles, can make full use of vehicle digital information source, build "Internet of vehicles" management platform, so as to cultivate and create vehicle-related service functions and service industry. In JAPAN, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications launched the U-Japan initiative in 2007 with the goal of realizing Ubiquitous society based on the no-parking charging system and VICS dynamic navigation system. U-japan's vision is to promote the use of RFID based on the comprehensive provision of new services in all areas of daily life.
In the RFID technology development strategy, the White Paper on China's Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology Policy defines the implementation process of RFID technology in three stages:
The first stage of cultivation (2006 to 2008) : Tracking the latest international generic technology research and development, combined with the application of key industries, research and development of RFID technology with independent intellectual property rights, according to the national RFID standard system framework, develop corresponding technical standards and application standards, and carry out application demonstration projects;
The second stage of growth (2007 to 2012) : Breakthrough in application and industrialization of key technologies, accelerate the formulation of relevant technical standards and industry application standards, basically form China RFID standard system, expand application fields;
The third stage of maturity: to form an international advanced technical system for the same period, and realize the wide application of RFID technology and the application of other technologies.
At the same time, traffic management and public safety, production management and control, modern logistics and supply chain management, military applications, major projects and events and other fields are listed as priority application fields, providing experience for large-scale application of RFID technology.
The National Development and Reform Commission, in notice of The General Office of the National Development and Reform Commission on The Organization of Pilot Informatization Work (High Technology  No. 618 of the Development and Reform Office), has made clear the focus of the pilot project of radio frequency technology: Encouraging transportation, railway, post, public security and other departments to carry out the construction of pilot application projects: One is the pilot project of vehicle electronic license plate based on radio frequency technology, focusing on solving the problems of vehicle automatic identification, dynamic monitoring, license plate application and anti-counterfeiting; The second is the pilot project of network dynamic monitoring and expressway network automatic toll collection based on radio frequency technology; The third is the pilot project of dynamic management of articles based on radio frequency technology to innovate business and management mode.
It can be said that the application of RFID technology in intelligent traffic management in China will enter a period of rapid development in the next few years.
