T-Systems is demonstrating the Satellic Tolling Platform, a state-of-the-art high-quality GNSS-based road user charging system. This includes an EETS ready easy-to-install on-board unit (OBU) and a self-service Web portal for quick-and-simple customer access.
All key processes in the lifecycle of a toll collection system, for both end-users and the OBU, are on show here at the ITS World Congress. Insights will be given into the quality of the GNSS toll detection and calculation algorithm as well as the direct feedback provided to users. The demonstration is in the form of a test drive in a challenging urban environment. The Satellic Tolling Platform is the basis for T-Systems EETS ready ’Tolling as a Service’ offering. This enables road-charging organisations to outsource their toll detection and calculation processes to one of the world’s most experienced GNSS system operators, allowing the road-charging organisations to concentrate on customer relations and value-added services.
More than 10 years ago, T-Systems was the first company to design and implement the majority of the elements of the world’s first-ever GNSS-based toll collection system, for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) for the German highways.
Since 2005, T-Systems brings together the expertise gained from the German project in the Satellic Telematic Services division to develop a next-generation service based road charging system, and to address the growing international market.
Satellic’s unique expertise in key technologies is a highly valuable resource in the road charging space and is also an important foundation for the provision of high-quality solutions in many other emerging fields where the solutions are applicable.
Telematic concepts are a key strategic focus for Deutsche Telekom AG and T-Systems International GmbH. Based on this offering, T-Systems won in 2014 together with its partner the tender to supply and operate the system for the national truck tolling scheme of the three Belgian regions.
