Intelligent Transportation Systems

ITS

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) aid transportation operators and emergency response personnel as they monitor traffic, detect and respond to incidents, and inform the public of traffic conditions via the Internet, roadway devices, and the media.

ITS: using advanced technologies and communications systems in an integrated manner to improve the transportation system. Some examples of ITS are:

  • Computerized traffic signal control
  • Real-time People Mover bus arrival times
  • People Mover "Smart" Fare Boxes
  • Easy Park "Smart" Pay by Phone
  • Provision of real-time traffic condition information to travelers  
  • Enhanced operational efficiency Road weather information systems

ITS Architecture: a framework that supports sharing of information and data flows between computerized systems.

The ITS Architecture does not require that any systems or data flows be implemented.  It is a planning tool that helps ensure that needed data can be extracted from future systems as they are implemented.
