In the present day scenario, power is a major need for human life. There is a need to develop non- conventional sources for power generation due to the reason that our conventional sources of power are getting scarcer by the day. This paper emphasizes on the idea that the kinetic energy getting wasted while vehicles move can be utilized to generate power by using a special arrangement called ?power hump? at toll gates. The main aim is to run the toll system using piezoelectric sensor. In turn we are saving the power needed for running the toll gate. Now a days there is a huge rush in the toll plazas in order to pay the toll tax. Therefore in order to reduce the traffic jam and to save time, & also to reduce the money loss of 300 cores / year. In this paper automation in toll tax payment using RFID is designed. Automation of toll plaza is made using the combination of microcontroller, RFID and Piezoelectric sensor. In addition, this paper also had solar panels, which would satisfy our power needs, when there is no vehicular movement.
