Intertraffic launch for Kapsch’s compact EETS compliant OBU

First publishedIntertraffic
Daily News

A partnership between Kapsch TrafficCom and Axxès sees a new EETS (European Electronic Toll Service) compliant on-board unit (OBU) being launched at Intertraffic. The new compact unit is said to offer improve usability and provide a larger capacity for value-added services.

In developing the new solution, Axxès and Kapsch built on their existing cooperation which has already seen Axxès supply a fleet of 200,000 trucks with Kapsch’s satellite solution. According to Jerome Lejeune, president of Axxès, the new OBU has been “honed with five years-worth of users’ feedback, its ease-of-use is second to none.”

EETS aims to facilitate daily operations by removing the need for road users to pay tolls to the respective local toll chargers which currently requires an internationally operating truck to equip and register with an OBU in each country it enters. EETS is complementary to the national electronic toll services and in future, only one contract with an EETS provider and a single OBU will be needed to settle tolls in all EU member states.

“The new OBU can be used on the entire EETS-capable toll road network in Europe, even in Italy which uses a different communication technology,” said Peter Selmayr, general manager at Kapsch’s Tolltickets subsidiary.
