Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Technology Used

The toll ring offered electronic toll collection with the use of on-board units and DSRC technology. Passive tags are activated by a roadside transmitter, which sends a signal to the tag that responds with its identity. This response is read by an associated receiver at the roadside, enabling a charge to be added to or deducted from a centrally held credit or debit account.

Since 2004 electronic toll collection has been harmonized throughout Norway and is owned and managed by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (the Auto-PASS system).
