"In April this year the European Commission published a proposal that all vehicles should pay road tolls electronically, with full implementation
foreseen for 2010. Under the proposal, all vehicles will carry a 'black box', which will be tracked by satellites relaying information on the
distance travelled by the vehicle, the class of road travelled and the time at which the journey was made. "

edit- "It will be interoperable with other global satellite navigation systems, such as GPS while providing far greater accuracy, down to two metres.
Other applications for Galileo in the transport sector include vehicle location, taxi and lorry fleet management and monitoring levels of road use.
