Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is a combination of leading-edge information and communication technologies used in transportation and traffic management systems to improve the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of transportation networks, to reduce traffic congestion and to enhance drivers’ experiences. The possibilities are endless.

  • Activities that were traditionally undertaken through human intervention can be automated.

  • Road network performance can be monitored and adjusted, in real-time.

  • Data that was previously collected by costly physical infrastructure can be provided through new, richer data sources.

  • Analysis that was undertaken from historic data can now be undertaken by systems delivering intelligence through real-time data analytics.

  • Road users choices, previously influenced only through road signs, can be influenced through a wide array of publication channels such as mobile devices/in-car systems.

These possibilities will only happen if Road Administrations have a clear and considered strategy for bringing existing disparate systems, services, and operational approaches together over time.
