Alfee™

Alfee ™ makes it possible to replace toll collection with fair, GPS-based road pricing without installation and maintenance of expensive toll systems on roads and ferry quays. Road pricing can be based on user profiles, vehicle pollution profiles, mileage, time of day, driving routes and more.

With Alfee ™, the Norwegian company Affin will create fair, user-financed road construction that simultaneously promotes the green shift by managing car traffic better and rewarding smart choices.

The technology can be used stand-alone or in systems such as traffic or map applications. Get in touch for more information and help realize the potential of the technology socially and commercially.

Tolls can be collected fairly with Alfee ™

Replaces physical toll roads with digital technology:

Green shift with fair tolls

Imagine an everyday life without toll plaques, toll stations, cameras and other sensors. Imagine a reality where tolls are perceived as fair and contribute dynamically to the green shift.

Sucha an everyday life would be without billions invested in acquisition, installation, maintenance, dismantling and sometimes relocation of physical facilities.

It is without costly logistics for large toll badge quantities every year.

This everyday with Alfee ™ technology

 

Universal road pricing system

With Alfee Aff, Affin AS aims to create a universal road pricing system that can take in far more parameters than current systems. We have protected the concept and technology through three patent applications that can provide exclusive, commercial rights until 2037.

The technology is based on GPS, smartphones and car data. We invite the authorities and the business partners to realize the road pricing system together with us.

 

Tolls that reward green choices

Without compromising on privacy, Alfee ™ opens up new possibilities, including toll solutions that reward green choices:

Environmental measures with immediate effect

In seconds, road price changes can be communicated to drivers. This will motivate the drivers to route choices that result in less pollution or to bypass certain areas that are in need of traffic reduction.

Toll reward for parking the car.

On days or hours with a high pollution risk, increased tolls can subsidize public transport tickets for those who leave the car parked.

Tolls that make it expensive to do harm

Road prices can be changed to direct traffic away from, for example, health institutions and city centers based on the traffic situation. In this way, toll sizing rather than physical regulation can control traffic. Map app can show the rates.

Tax based on the vehicle’s pollution profile

Commercial vehicles fueled on climate-friendly energy can pay less than others. Large electric cars can be taxed more than small ones. With Alfee ™, road pricing is fair – not according to a general standard as now.

One invoice for everything

In Norway, insurance and annual car registration fee are invoiced together. With Alfee ™, invoices for road financing can come from the same sender. It simplifices digital handling – and creates less paper work for all those who still prefer physical invoices.

Toll rates variations for different user groups

People with reduced mobility abilities, emergency vehicles, taxis and others can get their own rates permanently or occasionally.

Insurance – an other issue

Insurance costs in accordance with driving pattern and driving range.

Toll solution that meets strict privacy requirements

Alfee ™ will see to fulfillment of all national and EU privacy requirements. Also, Affin has entered into a collaboration with Prosa Securityon extensive testing to secure against hacking attempts and other cyber threats.

Why rectify unfair tolls?

Tolls are widely used. Criticism against tolls is often caused by many cases of blatantly unfair collection and lack of reward for environmentally sustainable measures.

For example, some people drive short distances but still pay the same toll as long distance drivers. Others eperience having the toll road station placed right outside their home and pay for any small movement in their the local community.

Some actually choose to pollute more than necessary by choosing detours and contributing to queues to lower tolls. Some are singel drivers. Others go together in an effort for the environment. Some drive hardly ever, others freequently.

Large, subsidized electric vehicles pollute far more than smaller electric ones – from a life cylce point of view perhaps even more than small, modern vehicles with internal combustion engines. Electric cars with heavy battery packs wear out car tires to a far larger extent than lighter cars.

Tolls, taxes and support schemes do not take this into account in a fair way. A fair system for road pricing and traffic management must take such things into account, and reward those who make vice choices.
