Payment Administration Center --> Emissions Management Center:
low emissions zone coordination

This triple is bi-directional. See also Emissions Management Center --> Payment Administration Center: low emissions zone coordination


low emissions zone coordination (Information Flow): Coordination of geographic boundaries, time period, fee structure, and restrictions for a low emissions zone. This flow supports negotiation between centers that establishes low emissions zone parameters based on air quality and transportation needs, as constrained by infrastructure and transportation services that are available to manage the defined zone and applicable laws and regulations.

Payment Administration Center (Source Physical Object): The 'Payment Administration Center' provides general payment administration capabilities and supports the electronic transfer of funds from the customer to the transportation system operator or other service provider. Charges can be recorded for tolls, vehicle-mileage charging, congestion charging, or other goods and services. It supports traveler enrollment and collection of both pre-payment and post-payment transportation fees in coordination with the financial infrastructure supporting electronic payment transactions. The system may establish and administer escrow accounts depending on the clearinghouse scheme and the type of payments involved. It may post a transaction to the customer account, generate a bill (for post-payment accounts), debit an escrow account, or interface to a financial infrastructure to debit a customer designated account. It supports communications with the ITS Roadway Payment Equipment to support fee collection operations. As an alternative, a wide-area wireless interface can be used to communicate directly with vehicle equipment. It also sets and administers the pricing structures and may implement road pricing policies in coordination with the Traffic Management Center.

Emissions Management Center (Destination Physical Object): The 'Emissions Management Center' provides the capabilities for air quality managers to monitor and manage air quality. These capabilities include collecting emissions data from distributed emissions sensors (included in ITS Roadway Equipment in CVRIA) and directly from connected vehicles. The sensors monitor general air quality and also monitor the emissions of individual vehicles on the roadway. The measures are collected, processed, and used to support environmental monitoring applications.
