ITS UK announces details of its Road User Charging Interest Group annual conference

The ITS United Kingdom Road User Charging Interest Group (RUCIG) is inviting ITS professionals with an interest in road user charging applications to its fourth annual international conference in London. The event will take place Dexter House, No 2 Royal Mint Court, Tower Hill, London, on February 17, 2011, and will look at the medium-term future of road user charging and includes a discussion to provoke thoughts on the way ahead in 2011. The conference will be chaired by Keith Mortimer of Wyeval Ltd and John Walker, Thales UK.

This year is set to be an interesting year for RUC professionals and their current and potential clients. The UK’s coalition government has ruled out national road pricing, but ruled in pricing for HGVs (Heavy Goods Vehicles) and as an option for privately financed roads. Meanwhile, many interesting schemes are operating or coming on stream overseas. The conference offers an opportunity to meet professionals from many of the application, operations and technology sectors that deliver road user charging schemes in the UK and internationally. The conference will survey best-practice technology and enterprise case studies from the UK and Europe, relevant to expected policy moves during the coming year.

Among the presentations are John Walker, Thales UK – Road user charging IS acceptable to the public, an evidence-based study; Mahesha Suriarachchi, IBI Group – Open Road Tolling: A natural progression; Steve Morello, Egis Projects – Clearinghouse development and operations: Comparison of various ETC Projects; John Davis, Transtoll Pty Ltd – ITS Ireland update and next steps for road user charging in Ireland; Ludger Linnemann, AGES International – How can UK RUC plans benefit from the Eurovignette experience?; Phil Harris, Thales UK – Robust positioning through sensor fusion; Marco Troglia, Quaeryon srl – The mobility credits model: From restrictions to permissions; and Colin O’Toole, BetEire Flow Limited – Barrier-free tolling: Collections and enforcement.
