Overview

Background & Policy context

After the basis of Hungarian ITS strategy had been elaborated and approved, the Ministry of Transport decided to launch another R&D project aiming to assess the impacts of ITS on environment protection and transport infrastructure development and maintenance. So this project concentrated on a certain part of ITS applications prioritised by the decision makers. This issues are namely the most 'burning' questions in Hungarian transport system and polcy.

Objectives

The main objectives set by the project can be summarised as follows:

  • identifying the relevant trends influencing the use of transport infrastructure and the environment pollution caused by transport activities;
  • reviewing the available ITS tools applicable for enhancing the efficiency or lowering the negative impacts of transport infrastructure use;
  • giving recommendations on the implementation of appropriate ITS tools by taking special Hungarian circumstances also into account.

Results

The main results of the project can be summarised as follows:

  • the main trends - e.g. European integration, GDP growth, structure of vehicle pools, etc. - affecting the current and future characteristics of transport infrastructures have been derived from national and international (EU) transport policies and development scenarios;
  • based on the results of international R&D and pilot projects, several ITS solutions - categorised as infrastructure management, fleet and vehicle management, and travel or goods transport management systems - have been identified and described for each transport mode (rail, road, waterborne, airborne) as possible tools of transport policy implementation;
  • the key recommendations have been elaborated on the basis of former analysis (trends, requirements, possibilities), categorised by transport modes and according to further criteria: vital problems needing ITS solutions (e.g. financial losses, not efficient operating processes, poor capacity utilisation, not flexible traffic organisation, etc.), preferred tools (e.g. ERTMS/ECTS in rail transport, multi- and intermodal travel information services, ingtegrated transport data bases, effective data interchange between clients and partners, etc.), pre-conditions (e.g. interoperability, ensuring input data quality, adequate human-machine interfaces, handling fedbacks, ensuring financial sources by PPP, etc.).

Policy implications

The following policy actions have been suggested when implementing the preferred ITS tools:

  • identifying core users/providers and their information needs/possibilities;
  • establishing a genaral development conception including high level requiremenst, standards and partners' roles;
  • assessing and evaluating currently used information systems;
  • assessing the expected market potential of intended ITS innovation;
  • identifying possible risks and planning risk management; 
  • performing feasibility studies;
  • raising financial sources and defining the forms of project operation.
