Tolling on a City Scheme: Congestion Charging

In order to relieve the city roads from car traffic and shift mobility to more sustainable transport modes, motorized vehicles are charged when entering the city border.

  • Congestion tariff can be adjusted depending on the vehicle's size, type and emissions
  • Toll fee is collected through smart app- and video-based technologies, in full compliance with data-privacy requirements
  • Congestion charging schemes provides city with most efficient lever to  encourage the modal shift and manage overall road traffic demand
  • Advanced solutions implement dynamic fees to account for critical situations (e.g. anticipated exceeding of an air pollution limit) or smoothen peak demands

National tolling schemes: Open Road Tolling

The open road tolling for a national road network is often based on a GNSS-system, enabling a highly accurate charging scheme according to the actual distance travelled.

  • With flexible On-Board-Units (OBU) using multiple satellite positioning systems (Galileo, GPS, Glonass, Baidu), tolled road network can be easily extended
  • Smart over-the-air management system keeps OBUs always up-to-date
  • Alternatively or complimentary, smartphones can be used to fulfill OBU-Tasks

 

A tolling or congestion charging solution is the most efficient way to control over road network usage on the demand side.

Tolling of High-Occupancy-Vehicles: Fast Lane

In many scenarios, vehicles are only occupied by one person, the driver. Car pooling by combining the same trips by two or more persons can tremendously relieve the road traffic, and should be rewarded by the tolling scheme.

  • With High-Occupancy-Tolling (HOT) for special lanes drivers have option to choose a separate fast-lane which is charged depending on the vehicle occupancy rate, or stay on lane without paying but with higher traffic volume
  • Intelligent algorithm calculates toll fee for fast-lane dynamically depending on vehicle occupancy and traffic density while ensuring a minimum driving speed
  • Number of passengers per vehicle is recorded and toll fee is fixed accordingly: the higher occupancy rate, the lower toll fee. 
  • Number plate per car is detected via ANPR camera and associated with corresponding occupancy rate

Experience shows that the savings in travel time create a high level of acceptance among the drivers.
