  1. http://motoring.asiaone.com/Motoring/News/...228-330623.html Motoring @ AsiaOne 'Some years' before new satellite-based ERP is ready: Minister Tests are still ongoing and if the system is found to be technically feasible, there are still some years to go before launch. -AsiaOne Tue, Feb 28, 2012 AsiaOne The development of the new satellite-tracked Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system is still in its "early stages", Minister of State for Transport Josephine Teo said in response to questions in Parliament on Tuesday. Tests are still ongoing to make sure that the system is technically feasible and reliable in a built-up city like Singapore, she said. And if the system is technically feasible, it is still "some years" before the system is ready to be launched and implemented, Mrs Teo added. Satellite signals may bounce off tall buildings in built-up areas like Singapore, resulting in patchy accuracy, earlier reports said. When the technology is proven, the Government will then study how to use the new system to influence motorists' usage of vehicles. A tender for the project was awarded to four parties last year to conduct a system evaluation test for the next-generation ERP system. According to The Straits Times, the four are Kapsch TrafficCom; MHI Engine System Asia & NCS; ST Electronics (Info-Comm Systems) & IBM Singapore; and Watchdata Technologies & Beijing Watchdata System. Each party will receive $1 million in seed funding "to design, develop and demonstrate technological solutions". The new system may charge motorists according to where they go and how much distances they clock. tonyng@sph.com.sg
  2. Wonder if in future when gps erp is up, will OCR properties prices be affected jialat jialat. This is assuming if erp gps starts charging the moment leave house till reach office near town or one frequent central area. Moderator, pardon me if I post in wrong category.

  4. News Releases 1 Oct 2014 The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has called a tender today to develop Singapore’s next generation electronic road pricing system. The new system will be based on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology. New Road Pricing System will be Satellite-based 2. Following an 18-month System Evaluation Test (SET) that concluded in December 2012, LTA has assessed that it is technologically feasible to develop a GNSS-based road pricing system in Singapore. This new system will overcome the constraints of physical gantries, which are costly and take up land space. In addition, it is not practical to continue with the current gantry system, which is almost two decades old and will become increasingly expensive and difficult to maintain. 3. Another key advantage of a GNSS-based system is the ability to implement distance-based pricing along the congested roads where road pricing is to be implemented. Distance-based pricing as opposed to the current gantry-based system, is more equitable as motorists will be charged proportionate to the distance travelled on these congested roads. Value-added services for motorists’ convenience 4. With the GNSS-based system, motorists can also look forward to an interactive and intelligent on-board unit (OBU) in their vehicle that can support a range of value-added services. These include real-time traffic information tailored to their location, as well as electronic payment for parking fees without today’s paper coupons. Off-peak car users can look forward to new policies which we are considering, which may allow them to pay only for using their vehicles for short periods rather than the whole day, or for using them only on uncongested roads. Three consortia shortlisted for upcoming tender 5. LTA has shortlisted three consortia to participate in the upcoming tender to develop the next generation road pricing system. They are NCS Pte Ltd & MHI Engine System Asia Pte Ltd, ST Electronics (Info-Comm Systems) Pte Ltd, and Watchdata Technologies Pte Ltd & Beijing Watchdata System Co Ltd. 6. The contract to design and develop the system is expected to be awarded in the second half of 2015. LTA aims to implement the system from around 202 LTA Press Release http://app.lta.gov.sg/apps/news/page.aspx?c=2&id=40e3e181-37ff-4d65-a8c8-3ed2f6ac99b0

    Satellite erp coming in 2020

    Charges based on distance travelled...
  6. After about two years of tests and trials, the Government has concluded that a satellite-based electronic road pricing (ERP) system, which can charge according to distance travelled, is likely to be feasible in Singapore. The system will also be able to facilitate paperless street-side parking as well as dynamic charges for off-peak car use. However, Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said that "it will be several more years" before the new-generation ERP system can be implemented. Speaking during a visit to the upcoming Marina Coastal Expressway yesterday, Mr Lui took pains to reassure motorists that they are unlikely to have to pay more with the new system.

  7. Ideas for a satellite-based electronic road pricing system are being evaluated by the Land Transport Authority (LTA). Four consortiums submitted proposals after testing various technological solutions between June 2011 and December last year. The next-generation ERP, which Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said is likely to be feasible but still several years away, could charge motorists based on how far they travel on congested roads. A spokesman for the authority said ideas submitted by the consortiums could form the base for developing the system. He added: "We will still need some time to review and evaluate the performance of the proposals... before we can make a final decision on the way forward."

  8. Singapore is moving a step closer to a satellite-based Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system, with the Land Transport Authority (LTA) seeking a contractor to provide vehicles to test technologies developed by four parties. An LTA spokesman said the on-road tests are part of a system evaluation trial for a next-generation ERP system. The on-road tests will begin in July and run until end-November, with an option for a three-month extension. If the entire trial goes smoothly, sources said that the LTA could call for a tender to build the new ERP system in 2014 or 2015. source: http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/S...ory_772338.html

    Satellite ERP

    Read this article in ST today. Feeling very disturbed by it. The article says that in a few years time, government will be implementing the satellite ERP to increase the cost of driving. Hence, the high COE is expected to come down eventually. However, my question is why our roads are getting more congested nowadays? Maybe someone should survey how much of the "additional" cars we see on the roads are contributed by foreigners or immigrants. I do not underestimate the importance of a critical mass of population in order for a small country like Singapore to be successful. But surely we must have reached our limits. I abhor the fact that our government is still considering to increase the population further. Extrapolating the outcome of the directions of their policies, one day, for every 10 cars we see on the road, 7 or 8 will be continental, driven by rich foreigners or immigrants. The purpose of all these policies is to ensure that the rich people will have the luxury of enjoying the conveniences of smooth traffic at all times. The government will simply force out average Singaporean from the road and make driving economically impractical for us. Not forgetting the fact that even basic needs such as HDB houses are doubling and tripling in prices over the years and our salaries ain't even growing as fast. How many of you agree with me that the root cause of these problems is due to the huge influx in foreigners and immigrants? The ruling government may be right in claiming that they need a strong mandate from elections to implement good policies to bring Singapore to greater heights. But in the midst of bring Singapore to greater heights, the indigeneous population's welfares have to be reasonably taken care of. Until one day when our government has demonstrated that they have given thoughtful considerations on population, housing and cars issues, I say we continue to keep the opposition parties around. In fact, more of us should stand out to vote for the opposition parties so that they can have a stronger voice in the parliament. P.S. I understand that there is political freedom in Singapore as long as the conversation does not involve sensitive topics like religion or races. I am only stating my opinion and what I've observed. Pls do not take me as a political dissident. I do think that the ruling government has done a good job in many aspects. But you guys really got to think carefully about your population, housing and car policies. Thanks.
  11. Some chinese FT joking say : We dont need to attack you , at this kind of birth rate , citizens become less and less and china FTs/ FWs will out number us eventually . You see 2.5M citizen vs 4M FTs/FWs in 2015 , what abt 50yrs now the road... ? 90% FTs/FWs liao A lot of top students now are also FTs , these will be our next generation leaders once they got citizenship. Can this ever happen ?

  13. The Meritorious Service Medal was awarded to Sonthi in recognition of his contributions toward enhancing the strong ties between the Singapore and Thai armies, the defence ministry said in a statement. "The two armies engage in a wide spectrum of activities," ranging from bilateral exercises to regular professional exchanges and attendance at each other's courses, boosting the comradeship between the officers and men, it added. Sonthi led a coup on September 19, 2006, overthrowing the elected government of then prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Sonthi had previously angered Singapore when he suggested that the city-state could be using telecom satellites Thailand had sold Singapore to eavesdrop on private conversations of the Thai military. He ordered military officials to give up their cell phones in favor of walkie-talkies to prevent any espionage, and suggested the Thai government should take back the four satellites. Singapore had strongly denied the eavesdropping allegations. Sonthi, who was scheduled to call on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong later Friday, has met with Teo and other military officials during his visit which started on Thursday. ----------------- http://nationmultimedia.com/2007/08/17/hea...es_30045460.php recollection
  14. Hi folks, 1. Does anyone know if a head unit imported directly from US works equally well in Singapore? 2. I understand that some sets are equipped with Sirius Satellite Radio Function, and hence, do we need an antenna of sorts to receive the satellite transmission? Is there a subscription service we need to pay for? 3. Say, we purchase such a set, and we are not using the Sirius Satellite Transmission, are we able to fix the head unit without the Satellite Antenna, and linked it to our stock Antenna instead? Workable? Thanks, Ed
