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 aims to create fair, user-financed road construction that simultaneously promotes the green shift by improving traffic management and rewarding smart choices.

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

Tolls can be collected fairly with Alfee ™

Replaces physical toll roads with digital technology:

Green shift with fair tolls

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

This would be achievable without billions invested in acquisition, installation, maintenance, dismantling and sometimes relocation of physical facilities.

This would also be achievable without costly logistics for a large number of toll chips every year.

This is the everyday life with Alfee ™ technology can provide.

 

Universal road pricing system

With the Alfee ™ app, Affin AS aims to create a universal road pricing system that can comprise far more parameters than current systems. We have protected our concept and technology with 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 business partners to join us to realize this road pricing system together with us.

 

Tolls that reward green choices

Without compromising on privacy, Alfee ™ opens up new possibilities, including toll solutionss 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 choose routes that result in less pollution or to bypass certain areas where traffic reduction is necessary.

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 park and leave their car.

Tolls that discourage harmful choices

Based on the traffic situation, road prices can be changed to direct traffic away from, for example, health institutions and city centres. In this way, traffic is controlled by the toll rate rather than physical regulation.

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 – as opposed to the current general standards.

One invoice for everything

In Norway, insurance and annual car registration fees are invoiced together. With Alfee ™, invoices for road financing can come from the same sender. This simplifies digital management – and creates less paperwork for all those who still prefer physical invoices.

Different toll rates rates for different user groups

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

Insurance – a separate issue

Insurance costs in accordance with driving pattern and area covered.

Toll solution that meets strict privacy requirements

Alfee ™ will be responsible for adherence to all national and EU privacy requirements. Moreover, Affin has entered into a collaboration with Prosa Security on extensive testing to secure against hacking attempts and other cyber threats.

Why fix unfair tolls?

Road tolls are extensively used. Criticism against tolls often results from many cases of blatantly unfair collection and lack of a reward for environmentally sustainable measures.

For example, some people drive short distances but still pay the same toll as long-distance drivers. Others experience having the toll road station placed right outside their home and have to pay for every time they drive somewhere local, no matter how short the drive.

Some actually choose to pollute more than necessary by choosing detours and creating queues just to pay lower tolls. Some people drive alone. Others car-pool to save the environment.

Large, subsidized electric vehicles pollute far more than smaller electric ones – from a life cycle 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 wise choices.
