Electronic fee collection - Requirements for urban dedicated short-range communication

Price from:
€ 96.69


This technical report analyses DSRC Urban Charge Point Requirements including the following issues:
- The core requirements and functionality that must be provided within DSRC equipment in an urban context;
- The potential aesthetic impact;
- How to handle the different traffic conditions in urban areas;
- Accommodation of the diversity of road users;
- The potential need to address highly variable topology;
- A wide variety of installation challenges;
- Minimisation of the impact of E-M interference;
- How to ensure interoperability with systems in non-urban contexts (e.g. motorways, plaza systems, handheld readers, etc);
- How to minimise and, if possible, have no impact upon OBE design;
- Relations to other existing standards in this domain;
- How to meet international requirements for Health and Safety;
- The wider policy context that city centres must address in addition to tackling congestion.
The physical location and configuration of the installation represent a compromise between the needs of the DSRC transaction, of the local electromagnetic environment and of the existing built environment locally both above and below ground. The urban charging system, of which the DSRC element is a part, will be required to fit within a wider social and transport policy context.
It is recognised that not all the elements above lend themselves to a standard, nor will industry be interested in promoting all above topics. However, with an increasing number of urban Charging Schemes being considered, there is a need to create relevant standards from the above lists and hence make it easier for suppliers to offer equipment and services to meet the requirements.
