About the Webinar
State of the Art of Electronic Toll Collection
The electronic toll collection (ETC) market is characterized by a diversity of solutions and systems which are frequently based on legacy developments addressing different technical and regulatory criteria. For national road agencies considering the deployment of ETC systems, this diversity of solutions means that comparing relative whole-life costs and strengths is a daunting task.
The principal objective of this webinar is to provide road professionals with a detailed understanding of those electronic tolling solutions that are available at the current time, and those that have potential for the near future. Those solutions will be placed in the context of their real world deployment across different types of schemes, as well as the applicable charging and enforcement solutions available to network managers. At the end of the webinar, participants will have been exposed to selected ETC schemes at different stages of maturity and representative of the diversity of the market as a whole.
