New Application Markets for Intelligent Transport Systems using Positioning and Communication Technologies: Generic Pay per Use Platform

This paper analyzes the design, development and implementation of a common flexible interoperable and easily extendable Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) platform for several applications such as Electronic Fee Collection System (EFC), Congestion Charge, Urban Parking management and Pay Per Use type of vehicle insurances based on satellite positioning. All these applications run on a generic platform based on positioning and communication technologies. This new Pay Per Use (PPU) system will allow, for example, users to travel across Europe and pay for tolls using a single contractual system, avoiding queues at toll stations. Additionally, due to the nature of the overall scheme, other valuable outcomes, such as pay per use insurance services or real time traffic management systems, will be obtained.
