Seven Principles for Establishing Interoperability in Autonomous Road User Charging in Europe

In recent years, road owners have shown an increased interest in implementing road user charging schemes based not on the traditional tag and beacon technology known from highway tolling, but instead using autonomous onboard equipment, capable of measuring road usage without the assistance of omnipresent road side equipment. This change in technology makes the earlier approach to interoperability insufficient, and a new set of principles must be established. This paper presents a set of such principles and how they can work to create incentives for actors to prioritize interoperability, while at the same time provide for continuous innovation and competition in the marketplace.
