Road user charging: an update from the ICT suppliers’ viewpoint

This paper discusses briefly the success of current road user charging (RUC) schemes, noting the lessons learned. The current capability, areas of further work, and future direction of development concerning RUC technology are then discussed. A closer look at RUC in the United Kingdom is then taken. A range of issues is discussed, and conclusions are drawn on a variety of points: government must be clearer on its long-term commitment and roadmap to and development of RUC; both the supply community and government must consider interoperability and integration now; the supply community has a role to play in the current public debate, and in providing government and public with acceptable solutions; there must be a continued and effective process of engagement between government and the supply community: both would benefit from this.; and the procurement strategy adopted by Government will be of significant importance, especially regarding any pilot schemes. It will be important to discuss this with industry.
