Combined Use of GLONASS and GPS in Electronic Tolling

This paper presents a new On Board Unit (OBU) hardware platform which is being prepared for tolling applications based on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). The new OBU has an integrated chipset which receives both GPS and GLONASS signals simultaneously. Higher position accuracy has been achieved in critical environments in which Global Positioning System (GPS) signals alone are insufficient. Taking advantage of both satellite systems, GNSS-based tolling technology can overcome many of the limitations it has faced until now, such as urban canyons in downtown areas having very tall buildings or very narrow streets. The first results of the deployment of the new GPS/GLONASS platform are presented.
