On October 11, 2022, ITS Norway invites you to the webinar "JuztDrive – Collecting GNSS-based road use charges using smartphones". Experts from the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA), the Norwegian Centre for Transport Research (TOI), Wangsness, Aventi Intelligent Communication (AIC), and Kapsch TrafficCom will for the first time present the results of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)-based road use charges  proof of concept project in Norway.

The Norwegian government is considering introducing a GNSS-based road use charging that charges vehicle owners based on how many kilometers they drive, instead of collecting fuel taxes or charging toll road fees.

To achieve this, a new technology is needed. This summer, Kapsch TrafficCom in cooperation with local ITS solutions provider Aventi Intelligent Communication (AIC) and the Norwegian Centre for Transport Research (TOI), and supported by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) and Drivkraft Norge, has realized a proof of concept project to collect GNSS-based road use charges using smartphones. Within this project, also some additional objectives are considered, such as how to combine kilometer pricing with the delivery of traffic messages and advanced safety warnings to drivers

Kapsch TrafficCom invests heavily in R&D, ensuring that our technology portfolio is always ahead of current market needs. The latest generation of tolling technology is transforming the way roads are being used and paid for. Authorities and concessionaires can deliver more value for end users than ever before, while maximizing their operating efficiency.

INTERVIEW: Road user charging – how will we get there? The number of vehicles on our roads shows continued growth, while the cost of maintaining road infrastructure is increasing. At the same time, improving fuel efficiency and EV uptake mean that fuel tax revenues are falling. Charging vehicles per mile they drive (road user charging, or RUC) is widely seen as the best solution. But, as Gabriel Makki, tolling expert at Kapsch TrafficCom discusses here, challenges to implementation still remain.
