NEW HIGHWAY USES FOR AVI SYSTEMS

An overview is presented of road pricing and congestion-pricing application status of several AVI (automatic vehicle indentification) projects: San Francisco International Airport toll revenue collection; Heavy-vehicle electronic license plate (HELP) study; Hong Kong electronic road pricing project; Singapore congestion pricing project; and toll industry initiatives. It is noted that present technology is sufficiently advanced to effectively collect user fees (tolls) and to administer congestion pricing strategies. Public acceptance of new road pricing approaches appears to be the major factor impeding implementation of AVI-based systems. It is pointed out that AVI system development and implementation efforts are more fragmented than desired, and increased efforts to coordinate development and implementation efforts are needed.
