AT THE CORE OF AXXÈS’ OFFER, THE OBU INCORPORATES HIGH-PRECISION TECHNOLOGIES FOR GEOLOCATION (GPS/GLONASS/GALILEO) AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS (DSRC – DEDICATED SHORT-RANGE COMMUNICATIONS).
Behind these tested technologies, Axxès has set up a consistent set of centralised procedures and systems to control the OBUs and measure distance according to the specific features of each toll domain (Germany and Belgium),of toll plazzas (France and Italy) and of enforcement frameworks (Germany and Belgium).
The toll domains are governed by European standards and draw on fully compliant technologies. Axxès has demonstrated patience and cunning to adapt its system, including its OBU, in response to the proprietary technology of a competitor, exclusive to Italy, but imposed by the European standard.
In an interoperability scheme set by the EETS, in which the system’s prescribers (local and national authorities, motorway concessionnaires) have to deal with varied local contexts, it is Axxès’ability to adapt its solutions and organisation that has enabled it to grow market share, offer a best-in-class service to its customers and focus on the future, with new domains covering the whole of Europe. Axxès, a French company based in Lyon, is the leading EETS service provider, with over 300,000 vehicles equipped.
