Emission and congestion problems are increasingly causing persistent economic losses and other social harms in numerous populated areas worldwide. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are complex innovative solutions for urban traﬃc management, which successfully address such problems and create a transport environment which is safer, cost optimized, more sustainable and more ecologically oriented.
A well-developed and integrated ITS applies various information and communication technologies to all modes of passenger transport, and positive results could be easily observed immediately after implementation. Such system enables authorities, operators and urban travelers to make better informed and coordinated decisions.
Solutions for control by municipalities over the mass transport operators and optimization of the urban transport schemes (these include mainly GPS tracking, control, and optimization of mass transport schedules, driver assistance services, passenger counting, electronic ticketing, etc.).
Electronic displays providing traﬃc information for various situations, including congestions, incidents, construction, road closures, etc.
Eﬀective tool for forecasting public transport arrival time at traﬃc signals. If running behind schedule, the public transportation vehicle can be given priority by altering the timing of the traﬃc signals. Enhances reliability and provides travelers and operators with real-time information on schedules and vehicle locations.
Harmonization of diﬀerent types of payments on the same platform, using smart cards. Individuals will be able to pay for parking, bus and train fares, as well as tolls, using a single smart card.
Detection and monitoring solutions helping traﬃc and public transportation authorities manage traﬃc ﬂows eﬃciently. Ability to detect incidents, collect traﬃc data, and ensure traﬃc safety.
Smart electronic payment method, allowing travelers to access various transportation modes such as buses, metro, rail transport, taxi, parking etc. Allows for automated complex fare structures, including zones, distance, time, border crossings and diﬀerent means of transportation (e.g. bus-train combination).
Information displays at bus-stops and in vehicles, voice announcements, infotainment and internet services in the vehicles, etc.
Dynamic and eﬃcient method for optimizing traﬃc ﬂow, reducing congestions & emissions, and improving schedule reliability. The timing of a traﬃc signal is continuously adjusted based on the changing arrival patterns of vehicles at an intersection.
Assisting vehicles to less congested areas, typically using VMS. Signiﬁcantly reduces urban congestions and improves traﬃc ﬂow.
