Abstract: Added Value Services (AVS) for road based freight transportation have gained the attention of public authorities, industry and the private sector. It is accentuated by systems developed or be-ing under development for road user charging, which have the potential to support additional ser-vices through sharing of functionalities (e.g. communication, positioning and payment). To de-sign telematic systems with many services, the relationships underlying such services and neces-sary functionalities is challenging to analyze. The aim of this paper is to develop a map or guide between important AVS and their functionalities that can be used as a foundation for analyzing potential system architectures for achieving such services. The paper attempts to address differing interest between commercial stakeholders and public authorities in deploying telematic systems for AVS. An analytical method for studying synergy behaviour between road-based telematic services, and required functionalities is proposed. The method is based on a modified hierarchical cluster agglomeration and is inspired by multiuse component based software design. Results of applying the method on AVS in the Swedish Road User Charing system shows that the choice of functionalities play an important role in estimating the synergy for a group of AVS, and hence in the architecture.
