The envisioned MLFF system will lead to the removal of boom barriers and facilitate non-stop toll collection at toll plazas. The full implementation of this system is anticipated to occur in phases by the third quarter of 2024.

Terminal surfaces online

According to SoyaCincau, card reading terminals have been installed at the toll stations of the New Pantai Expressway in preparation for the upcoming open payment system.

In the image, it can be seen that a card reading terminal has been added to the Touch ‘n Go card payment lane. However, it has not yet been activated and only displays the logo of its manufacturer, PAX Technology.

According to the official website of PAX Technology, this card terminal is called the PAX IM30. It is powered by an unnamed 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 processor and 1GB LPDDR3, and it can support up to 2GB of RAM.

The PAX IM30 operates on the Android system, is equipped with a 5-inch 720p TFT touch screen, and supports chip & PIN NFC and magnetic card swipe payments.

The dataset also shows that the card terminal is equipped with a camera, so the public can also pay tolls and other fees by scanning QR codes.
