Technological changes experienced in payment methods have marked the development of toll systems throughout its history, starting with systems manual payment which later evolved to automatic toll systems (coins and / or cards) and ETC channeled to new models of payment for use of infrastructure, such as satellite toll, "free flow" or "congestion charging" which have begun to be implemented in Europe over recent years. As discussed below, the common denominator of these new models of pay per use is the use of "free flow" technology in its development.

Throughout this article, we try to analyze the evolution and current trends in toll systems in Europe and Spain, as well as a thorough analysis of the "free flow" technology and the differentiating factors that make this technology the key to the implementation payment per use.
