What Are The Research Gaps?

The technology development is mostly driven by the industry and not so much by research. The functional requirements of the different schemes, including the tariff principles, are the main driving forces for the industry to develop cost effective solutions. However, the definition of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) may have an impact on the variety of the schemes and one might expect to see more and more 'standardised' schemes for URUC. More and more standardised URUC schemes may also result in an optimised 'family' of OBEs reflecting the different 'standardised' URUC schemes requirements.

The European standardisation body CEN is quite active in completing the EFC suite of standards enabling the implementation of EETS. Hence, the industry will have an unambiguous set of specifications (standards) as a basis for their development of the technology with regard to DSCR and GNSS/CN based URUC systems.
