Geofencing to Enable Differentiated Road User Charging

Tolling has normally a dual purpose in Norway. The first goal is to finance a project or a change in the public appearance in an area, for instance extended public transport. The second goal is to change travel behaviour for travellers by private cars to other more environmentally friendly modes. Today, this tolling system is based on fixed points on the road network, not necessarily able to capture all usage of the roads evenly. Within the research project GeoSUM (Geofencing for Smart Urban Mobility) a solution where the driver instead of tolling perceives road user charging as a direct cost as a function of how much and how the road network is piloted. The key technology for this system is geofencing.
