Solutions

Mobility has always been a basic pillar of mankind. Yet nowadays and from an economic point of view, mobility in the shape of a sophisticated transportation system is not only an imperative need but an economic size in its own right.

Charging usage-based tolls is the most efficient and fair way to control road traffic, finance traffic infrastructure and offset ancillary expenses such as the cost of environmental pollution.

Our solutions enable all of the above and even more: They allow drivers to pay tolls quick and easy.

We have been installing and operating projects successfully around the globe. Each one proving their cost efficiency as well as their reliability. Either talking about all-electronic toll-collection in free-flow traffic or automated payment at conventional toll plazas, for individual roads or entire regions, based on time or distance, we design, implement and operate the best solution to meet client´s needs. And: we take care of migrating existing systems additionally

Managing traffic has always been viewed as a job for legislators. Statutes and directives define regulations that apply to various classes of vehicles, types of roads, and environmental conditions. At its core, such legislation has three objectives: to ensure the safety and security of everyone on the road, to enable traffic to flow as freely as possible, and to promote the responsible handling of environmental resources.

Technical solutions have long been a means of furthering political objectives. In 1868, the first traffic lights were installed in London. Today, modern traffic volumes call for new political and technical approaches. The methods applied vary from country to country, city to city, and road to road. Our technologies can be adapted to any of these.

Urban mobility in today’s cities is evolving at a rapid pace. Cities are facing huge challenges from several fronts such as deteriorating air quality and increased congestion. Additionally, in this transitional period cities are also faced with the evolution of urban mobility, with new mobility services such as electric and connected / autonomous vehicles. This requires an urgent need for urban traffic management and integrated mobility. This comprehensive management of urban mobility is made possible with modal shift and traffic management being key pieces to achieve the required reduction of transportation related emissions. Our solution is the heart of a Smart City’s Mobility Management Center, enabling an endto-end, holistic management of urban mobility, in order to globally increase efficiency and safety and provide the comfort and quality expected by travelers.

We combine several solutions into one platform, covering all relevant requirements for personalized Mobility-as-a-Service that makes traveling cost-efficient, seamless, environmentally friendly and convenient.

Identifying risky situations before they present a danger, notifying motorists of highway work zones and traffic congestion before getting stuck in traffic, and using precise data to dynamically manage traffic. All of this becomes possible when road users are able to collect and share information with each other and wireless components of traffic management systems. Toll collection systems and city access solutions are the first steps in this process. Vehicles communicate with the infrastructure, supply data, and receive relevant information. The next step is for all vehicles to be connected wirelessly. Numerous research programs and pilot projects are currently laying the groundwork for such a structured exchange of information and data processing.

Go-Maut 2.0, Austria.

In 2004, the world’s first electronic toll collection system for vehicles over 3.5 tons was launched in Austria. The system enables toll payment verification and charging without interrupting the flow of traffic. The “multi-lane free-flow” (MLFF) toll collection system built by us has been in continuous operation ever since. Quite recently we finished modernizing this Austrian “GO” toll collection system. Our new roadside infrastructure uses the new single-gantry solution and latest technology for tolling enforcement: “GO” is ready for the future.
