					Road Pricing and Carbon Emissions Monitoring The Vision
        

Live vehicle central monitoring Pricing based on carbon credits Electronic central boundary setting Every vehicle transmits electronic ID Regulation by real-time road usage charging Alerts and alarms set centrally for traffic events Able to reduce vehicle carbon emissions & prove it Customer has value in carbon trading global market Safer streets, cleaner air, improved lifestyle

Road Pricing and Carbon Emissions Monitoring What is proposed
   


    

Improve on current fixed point systems Vehicle device tracking by satellite positioning Ability to monitor/calculate carbon emissions Personal carbon credits used to pay charges Cap and trade scheme Ability to change boundaries at will Ability to predict traffic problems and send alerts Migration from existing technology Ability to transmit real-time traffic information Safer and more secure centrally monitored roads

Road Pricing and Carbon Emissions Monitoring

What is the technology?
Satellites send co-ordinates Corporate customers and drivers access data through portal

Antenna receives signal. Receiver obtains NMEA strings

Device transposes data & transmits message over available wireless networks

Data services Journey replays Billing services

Road Pricing and Carbon Emissions Monitoring How does road pricing apply?
Auto-routes, and cities for a start. Other zones to follow.  Configured and managed from central services – boundaries can be changed dynamically  Anywhere there is a road - wireless network coverage  Once operational, technology can be applied in any designated bounded area in any city or country  Technology services developed wherever cost-effective  Able to use distributed technology, data centres, telco, wireless networks for efficiency


Road Pricing and Carbon Emissions Monitoring

Why is this a good idea?

     

Provide incentive to reduce emissions based on real data Manufacturers get buyers for low carbon cars & fuel Existing technology cannot track carbon Individuals can carbon trade - rewards for reducing mileage Provide traffic flow analysis and statistics Improved inner city real-time traffic monitoring Able to provide real-time information to drivers

Road Pricing and Carbon Emissions Monitoring Where are we headed?
Phased implementation of vehicle tracking from 2009 -2015  Flexible carbon credit options including pre-paid and post-paid options  Journey replays and carbon emissions on-line on demand  Ability to discount for vehicles with reduced or (eventually) no carbon emissions  Real time statistics, including road usage, traffic patterns, personal and aggregated carbon emission calculations on a daily basis

