SSI Introduces Astro – Premium E-Tolling Transponder

HONG KONG, Sept. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Star Systems International (SSI), a market leader in Smart City Products, today announced the launch of its Astro Premium E-Tolling Transponder. Astro is certified for Interoperability in Tolling Systems. It is a dual-purpose transponder and is tuned to deliver remarkable performance on a windshield or headlamp of any vehicle.

Astro comes with improved sensitivity, a large user memory bank, and advanced security.  It is fully tested and certified for conformance and interoperability for tolling.  Along with being Gen2V2 compliant, it features innovative self-error detection features.

"These self-data error detection features give Astro market-leading reliability," said Stephen Lockhart, CTO at SSI.  "They flag one or more-bit errors should they occur. Reducing errors improves back-office efficiencies.  This is beneficial for improving operational costs as well as maintaining good customer relations. In addition, the large 512-bit user memory bank is perfect for applications that require extra memory."

Astro is manufactured to withstand harsh environmental conditions, such as long exposure to extreme sunlight and wide temperature ranges. Coupled with the finest workmanship and highest quality control standards, Astro is engineered to exceed industry standards.

"This best-in-class product allows us to provide more value to our customers and it reflects our commitment to stay at the forefront of technological development."
