Rapid changes in technology and communication have considerable effect on communities. With a simple review of urban transportation in recent years, it is found that despite great investment and construction of new roads, there are some problems including congestion, accidents, environmental pollution, etc. The realities in the analysis of transportation of Iran show that the problems in transportation system are extensive and having access to safe and rapid transportation requires extensive studies. It seems that control of effective factors is not possible via traditional methods. The idea of using intelligent transportation systems presents a new horizon to achieve continuous progress in information and communication community. Vehicles tracking and positioning in urban environments are the urban planning and management principles. This study aims to evaluate feasibility and presentation of RFID strategies as an exact and cheap technology compared to other technologies including GPS in smartization of highways and land transportation system. RFID is a cheap technology in advanced countries, even store systems and is also used in urban and transportation systems. RFID indicates the systems using Radio frequency to transfer identity of an object. This technology has proved its efficiency as an economical tool in improvement of performance and reduction of time and man power costs. This study indicates that more than 76% of prioritization in RFID application is dedicated to public transportation, intercity system and personal cars. One of the challenges of RFID application in Iran is the lack of planning and required infrastructures in this technology.
