RCI project in search of suppliers
The RCI project asks interested providers and manufacturers of road charging technologies to submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) to potentially join the current Consortium for the implementation of the RCI prototypes.
The RCI project has started its work without the involvement of such suppliers because of the need, first, to clarify the implementation tasks based on agreed requirements. In the meantime, the consortium asks interested European suppliers, with the appropriate profile, to establish small consortia that can make a proposal towards the RCI project that describes how that consortium of suppliers could commit itself to the RCI project.
The deadline is coming closer and suppliers are asked to submit an EoI to the RCI project coordinator, ERTICO, by the 9th December 2005 at the very latest.
The RCI Consortium refers to the term “suppliers” when it speaks about providers and manufacturers of road charging technologies and in-vehicle platforms that potentially might join the current Consortium in the existing RCI contract for the implementation of the RCI prototypes.

The EC-supported, ERTICO-coordinated RCI-project (Road Charging Interoperability) officially kicked off 29 June 2005 at ERTICO. The project will address the issue of interoperability of road charging between European countries and trial and demonstrate interoperability between six key neighbouring countries – Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland – in which road charging systems already exist or will soon be widely implemented.
The targeted outcome of the RCI project will define how road charging transactions in Europe can be carried out with a single piece of in-vehicle equipment as well as provide its conclusions and recommendations in support of the pursuit for interoperable road charging by the European Commission
