Geofencing for Heavy Goods Vehicle Control and Management

This paper deals with geofencing: an innovative technology, based on telematics and satellite positioning. Geofencing enables remote monitoring of geographic areas surrounded by a virtual fence (geofence), and automatic detections when tracked mobile objects enter or exit these areas. The paper presents fundamental concepts of geofencing and some applications based on this technique, in the transport & logistics sector. Tracking & tracing systems that are based on global navigation satellite services and include a geofencing feature, could also efficiently contribute to the enforcement of heavy goods vehicles (HGV) regulations: weight and height restrictions on specific routes or tunnels, dangerous goods transports restrictions, restricted access in urban areas.
