The need for Clean Air Zones (CAZ) is being driven forward by the Government due to urban areas and trunk roads not meeting standards as set by European air quality laws. Local Authorities are required to produce Management Plans, setting out how they are working towards the improvement of local air quality. Our CAZ system targets the sector that significantly contributes to toxic air pollution: taxis. By effectively managing this type of vehicle, the Management Plan is assisted in bringing quicker results, meaning cleaner air.

How it works

DEFRA assists you, the Local Authority, to create a CAZ with provision of grants in order to regulate buses and taxis (as a minimum).

Current Solution

Camera and ANPR allows for management of congestion charging, and is technology that DEFRA currently backs. However, this solution is not entirely fit for purpose, as it can only recognise a vehicle entering and leaving a zone.

Our Solution

A telematic device which enables accurate management and fairer costing of vehicles in the CAZ. By providing a pollution-based pricing system the telematic device measures not only time spent in the zone, but also mileage and pollution output, providing an effective method of managing and charging vehicles in the CAZ. With Electric Blue support, every taxi would have an approved telematic device fitted as part of the licensing agreement.

This accurate tool can act as a standalone device, or supplement a current Camera and ANPR system.

The Electric Blue Clean Air Zone launched with Coventry City Council as an Innovate UK Funded R&D project - Completed in March 2018, it comprised a 7 month feasibility study with a pilot of the technology.
