Intelligent Transport Systems - Thematic Research Summary published


This document aims to provide the reader with a synthesis of available
results from completed European research projects related to
intelligent transport systems (ITS).
The ITS theme deals with 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 refers to efforts to add
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to transport infrastructure,
vehicles and transport/traffic management in an effort to manage factors that
typically are at odds with each other, such as vehicles, loads, and routes to
improve safety and reduce vehicle wear, transportation times, and fuel
