The ICT and Telematics Factor

  • “Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS) refers to the integration of information and communication technologies with transport infrastructure to improve economic performance, safety, mobility and environmental sustainability for the benefit of all European citizens.” (Ref: CO_0261)
  • “Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) comprise several combinations of communication, computer and control technology developed and applied in the domain of transport to improve system performance, transport safety, efficiency, productivity, and level of service, environmental impacts, energy consumption, and mobility.  ITS, sometimes also known as Transport Telematics Applications, can play particularly vital roles in ensuring mobility for all and meeting demand in increasingly competitive markets.  The need for such solutions stems from existing traffic and transport problems including congestion, accidents, lack of user information, lack of communications and decision-support for operators, etc.  These Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) provide the means to improve service quality, safety and management of transport systems, allowing existing infrastructure capacity to be used more efficiently and safely.” (Ref: CO_0255)
  • “ITS applications in road transport include electronic tolling, dynamic traffic management with variable speed limits, parking guidance and reservation, navigation devices and driver assistance systems like electronic stability control and lane departure warning systems.” (Ref: CO_0280)
