This part of ISO/TS 16407 specifies the test suite structure (TSS) and test purposes (TP) to evaluate the conformity of Front End and Back End to ISO/TS 17575-1. The objective of this part of ISO/TS 16407 is to provide a basis for conformance tests for the Front End and the Back End in electronic fee collection (EFC) based on autonomous on-board equipment (OBE) to enable interoperability between different equipment supplied by different manufacturers. Autonomous OBE operates without relying on dedicated road-side infrastructure by employing wide-area technologies such as global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and cellular communications networks (CN). These EFC systems are referred to by a variety of names. Besides the terms autonomous systems and GNSS/CN systems, also the terms GPS/GSM systems and wide-area charging systems are in use. Autonomous systems use satellite positioning, often combined with additional sensor technologies such as gyroscopes, odometers, and accelerometers, to localise the vehicle and to find its position on a map containing the charged geographic objects, such as charged roads or charged areas. From the charged objects, the vehicle characteristics, the time of day and other data that are relevant for describing road use, the tariff and ultimately the road usage fee is determined.
