Objectives

The purpose of this research is to design a system for charging road users that embodies as many attributes of an ideal user charge system as possible. This research will examine the use of ITS technology that will enable real-time assessment of user charges based on actual miles traveled. Key to this approach is an onboard computer linked to global positioning systems (GPS) and detailed electronic map (MIS) systems. The system will track travel and, when data is downloaded, provide a means for use based billing.(updated 12/20/02)
