Next-Generation Road Pricing System Will Optimise Use of Road Network and Improve Motorists' Travelling Experience

SINGAPORE, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Solace's data movement technology has been selected as a key infrastructure component of a Next-Generation Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system being built for Singapore Land Transport Authority by a consortium of NCS and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine System Asia (MHIES-A). The Next-Generation ERP system, which makes use of advanced satellite technology for congestion management, will enable more efficient information flow between sensors and vehicles and overcome the constraints of physical gantries.

In addition to the infrastructure and sensor network that Solace message routers will be a part of, the Next-Generation ERP system will see the replacement of an existing In-Vehicle Unit (IU) with a new On-Board Unit (OBU) that will be able to provide additional services to motorists, such as disseminating traffic advisories. It can also be used to electronically pay for parking and checkpoint tolls.

"Singapore is a world leader in adopting Smart Nation strategies to improve life for its citizens and efficiency of its businesses," said Craig Betts, Solace President and CEO. "We're pleased to be working closely with NCS and MHIES-A to deliver the next-generation Electronic Road Pricing system, and look forward to expanding the scope and value of their efforts."
