Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Technology Used



All the gates installed around Rome are integrated with cameras working twenty-four hours a day: as the camera on the e-gate detects a car, a picture of the plate is taken and sent to the control centre. The ANPR allows comparing each plate number to the “White List” database. If there is a mismatch a fine is automatically issued to that plate.



With the implementation of the system in Trastevere, called IRIDE2, the computer interface has been improved and optimised; besides a specific effort has been spent to improve the information on the service, by including the vertical signalling combined with the e-gate. This mini-VMS (Variable Message Signs) system, providing real-time information on the gate status (active or not), is now present in all the gates to support a better comprehension of city’s rules from citizens and tourists.

These new LTZ schemes are further supported by some side-measures like the Trastevere LTZ situation. In that case, during the enforcement, a dedicated shuttle service operated by electric buses connects the LTZ area with 221 slots parking.
