Dynamic Toll Calculation
Over recent years, more and more so-called ‛HOT lanes’ (High Occupancy Toll) have been put into operation. This concept, which originated in English-speaking countries, is now being increasingly deployed in other countries.
On these sections of road, a toll is levied only on drivers who want to use the lane and are alone in their cars. The problem is that previous systems determined the toll fee either statically or on the basis of experience at certain periods during the day.
The Innovative Solution
For this purpose Siemens has developed an innovative dynamic algorithm which enables the fee to be set so that road users are always assured an appropriate traffic quality.
