In this work, the AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) is applied to select a most satisfactory ETC (Electronic toll collection) method. ETC is an applied science that permits the automation of tariff collections at toll parkways. The ETC technologies from which selection was done are based on DSRC (dedicated short-range communication) which includes barcode, quick response (QR) code and radio frequency identification (RFID). Each of these technologies was analyzed based on five criteria to optimize the selection process.
ADOPTION OF RFID TECHNOLOGY IN KENYA (Published)
The objective of this research was to evaluate knowledge of RFID systems in the Kenyan ICT sector. This was in tandem with my Master’s thesis titled “Enhancing RFID Application Data Security Using RSA Algorithm”. To enhance the current security measures and controls in current RFID applications I propose RSA algorithm as the best suited public cryptosystems in the currently available encryption standards. As I collected my data from the different respondents I issued my questionnaires I found varying responses across the board, some knew of RFID and RSA algorithm while others have never heard of RFID and RSA algorithm. After collection of this data i used SPSS to analyze it and the deductions I attained formed the basis of this publication. This research was focused wholly in the Kenyan ICT sector and evaluated the knowledge of RFID in sector.
