Satellite Tolling

The new Kapsch TrafficCom satellite tolling system efficiently collects nationwide tolls on dedicated roads, using satellite data for cost-effectiveness. It's compatible with existing hardware, ensuring a future-proof solution for truck and light vehicle tolling.


The next generation Kapsch TrafficCom satellite tolling solution delivers nationwide schemes to collect tolls over dedicated road networks. Because it uses satellite positioning data, rather than an extensive roadside infrastructure, the solution is extremely economical. It works with both dedicated and existing aftermarket and in-vehicle hardware to deliver a future proof approach to truck and light vehicle tolling.

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) based tolling is the next evolution of Multi-Lane Free Flow (MLFF). It uses highly accurate satellite position data to locate individual vehicles and calculate tolls based on criteria such as vehicle classification, Euro emissions class, axle count and road type.

Economical and future proof

GNSS-based tolling enables the deployment of regional or nationwide tolling systems with a much smaller footprint than is possible with the more traditional radio frequency or ANPR-based approaches.

We can also scale the solution faster and more flexibly. New road sections, for example, can be added, or classifications changed, without the need for extensive additional roadside equipment.

The Kapsch TrafficCom solution supports both real distance driven and segment-based tolls using data from any source. These include dedicated tolling and European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) devices, smartphones, aftermarket fleet telematics, track and trace units, and connected vehicles.

Our solution is designed to deliver precision, flexibility, and eco-friendliness, aligning seamlessly with the country's future-forward vision. We aim to redefine the tolling experience for heavy goods vehicles across Denmark.
