GNSS-based metering for vehicle applications and value added road services – GNSSmeter


The project develops a road pricing and pay per use insurance application system based on vehicle on-board technology that can be integrated rapidly to an existing market product. Currently, GPS is used as the primary positioning technology and is the key enabler of the existing system. Within GNSSmeter, the existing concept is extended by integrating EGNOS/EDAS augmentation data as well as Galileo measurements.

GNSSmeter

The first Galileo signals will be processed and in the near future significantly increase the ability for metering calculation especially in urban canyons. A sophisticated PVT software which incorporates GPS, EGNOS and Galileo raw measurements, will handle and process several satellite signals and additionally will carry out several integrity checks to improve the necessary charging integrity which is required for liability critical services (such as pay per use insurance applications). The PVT solution will incorporate augmentation data from EGNOS signal in space as well as EDAS in a communication link. The metering calculation software will use the GNSS (GPS/EGNOS/Galileo) raw data forwarded by the PVT software for the metering calculation which is further used for road pricing calculation. The calculated position, velocity, and time from the PVT software will be used to validate the extended metering calculation software. Thus, the project proposes some significant advantages over the status quo. The scope of GNSSmeter addresses the topics vehicle applications with high public utility such as road pricing and vehicle value added services such as Pay Per Use insurance.
