The lack of national standards in the United States has been the primary obstacle not only in slowing interoperability but also in the advancement of mobile payment and ITS systems. Effectively, we had 50 individual countries protecting their investments in the technology and unique business rules that they deployed years prior. Tolling in the United States grew up with every individual deployment believing that the concepts of their agency, state or region were better than anyone else's. In the early years, most agencies did not consider the need for cooperation between their agency and agencies or states beyond their confined regions. With the continued vision of those working on interoperability, this issue will be solved prior to the implementation of autonomous vehicles. This will bring mobile payments not only to tolling but also to commercial applications such as parking and fast food, not just in the United States but worldwide.
