The Future of Commercial Vehicle Tolling
Benefits of distributed On-Board Equipment for EU-wide Tolling
The Whitepaper discusses the question how new technologies and a new E/E architecture open up the opportunity to distribute the functional elements of On-board Units (OBU), most commonly used for connecting commercial vehicles with a tolling infrastructure, to existing vehicle hardware. The author suggests developing a distributed, hardware-independent On-Board Equipment (OBE) solution offering cost benefits, shorter innovation cycles, increased data quality, and which can be used to create new business models by EETS providers.
