New toll tariffs – type of drive and CO2 classes

In 2020, the EU transport ministers initiated toll rates based on CO2 classes. ASFINAG already commissioned Rapp in 2019 to draw up a rough concept for the implementation of a differentiation of the GO toll according to type of drive and CO2 classes.

Use of eCall data for traffic management

Rapp was commissioned together with AIT to identify potential use cases for the use of eCall data in traffic management and to investigate whether and in what way these use cases can be implemented technically, functionally and organisationally.

Transport of the future 2060

The SVI research project "Transport of the Future 2060" aims to develop a visionary view of the long-term development of traffic and transport in Switzerland. Several parallel sub-projects are to provide the (coordinated) building blocks to form three common visions of the future: "Evolution", "Revolution" and "Devolution".

Prautocol - Certification of drivers and automated vehicles

The research project "Prautocol" deals with the certification of drivers and vehicles in the field of automated driving with the aim of strengthening the position of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Support for the development of the German passenger car toll

After the award of the operating contract for the installation and operation of the German passenger car toll to TollTicket, Rapp was commissioned with the development of the operational process model. It was important, that the model had to comply with the specifications of various standards, such as ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 20000, etc.

Certification of the DKV Box in all DSRC countries

In the course of the introduction of the DKV-Box (Toll4Europe's on-board unit), certification of the on-board unit and the processes required for toll collection had to be carried out in all DSRC countries.

Performance assessment of positioning by satellites for road transport (SaPPART)

SaPPART paves the way for certified terminals, which should lead to a significantly higher use of GNSS-based intelligent transport systems and mobility applications.

C-ITS Compliance Assessment Framework for ANZ

In the very near future vehicles will interact with each other and together with the road infrastructure as "Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems", C-ITS. C-ITS are expected to significantly improve road safety, traffic efficiency and driving comfort and expand the potential for automated vehicles.

iMONITRAF! - Toll Plus System

The Alpine regions of the iMONITRAF! network have identified the need for a more targeted and harmonised pricing system in sensitive mountain areas: Toll Plus. The study helps to advance the implementation of the Toll Plus system and identifes possible regulations for regional transport.

Swiss Heavy Vehicle Fee

Since 1997 Rapp has been the Technical Advisor to the Federal Customs Administration (FCA) for the Performance-related heavy vehicle charge (LSVA).

On-Board weighing for trucks

Overloaded vehicles on the road are a significant problem and negatively affect road safety, road degradation, the environment and competition.

Open in-vehicle platform

In addition to legally required devices such as a tachograph or toll collection devices, many trucks use voluntarily installed devices for navigation or fleet management. In the future, further mandatory devices are likely to be added.

Future technologies in the area of road pricing

In a technology study various new technologies were analysed with regard to their applicability in the field of road pricing. The evaluation of the technological approaches was carried out on the basis of criteria related to different road pricing scenarios. Rapp conducted the study for Kapsch and applied a time horizon of 10 to 15 years.

Liabilities with regard to ITS applications and services

When the interaction of multiple actors (vehicle manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, telecommunication operators, road infrastructure operators, etc.) is required, as is the case for cooperative systems and automated driving, liability issues can be a barrier to the deployment of ITS applications and services.
