City tolling.

Toll collection solutions for cities.

Increasing urbanization is presenting great challenges for city administrators. Unrestricted mobility is important to both city residents and visitors, however, a total lack of traffic controls leads to overcrowding on the roads. This calls for intelligent mobility management that guides traffic flows, diverts traffic around congestion points, and increases driver awareness of congestion issues. City tolling is a particularly effective way of achieving this. Many cities such as Singapore, London, Milan, and Stockholm are already using city tolling with success.

 

Situation-dependent road pricing models.

Intelligent urban traffic concepts use technologies that add a communication network to the road network. This makes it possible to control traffic using road pricing models based on a variety of parameters. Fees are collected on the basis of distance traveled, time, vehicle class, or emission class, and they can be adapted in real time depending on the current situation (congestion levels, emission levels, etc.).

 

Proven technologies in a new context.

The technologies we use for city tolling have already proven their effectiveness in highway toll collection systems. They include automatic number plate recognition using video surveillance (ANPR), as well as communication via DSRC (Dedicated Short-Range Communications) microwave technology, and GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) satellite positioning in cities to improve the reliability and precision of the systems.

Highlights

City tolling creates the basis for further applications.

  • Our city toll collection systems are based on standardized international technologies.
  • The necessary roadside installations can be implemented without any great difficulty.
  • The systems can be adapted to different conditions – local, organizational, or regulatory.
  • Additional functionalities, for example management of public parking spaces, can be integrated quickly and easily.

A much-cited example is the city access control system we implemented in Bologna, Italy. It was even recognized in 2012 by the Directorate General of the European Commission for best practice in intelligent traffic systems.
