Open Road Tolling and More

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are essential to support sustainable mobility for the society and transport policies. In addition ITS are the key to improve road safety. This is reflected in the US initiative “Vehicle Infrastructure Integration” (VII). The ITS system offering the most direct payback for the investment is electronic tolling; the state-of-the-art version is called Open Road Tolling (ORT). In the US the nation-wide use of microwave Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) @ 5.9 GHz will enable many different services within the VII including ORT. In this paper we will describe the possibilities and requirements related to ORT.
