Development of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in the Czech Republic took form of developing effective tools for transportation decision making system support. The state of knowledge and current computing technology potential enables rationalisation and optimising of a number of decisive situations in various transportation systems.
The objective of the project is to provide an analysis of the integrated transport system in the city of Hradec Králové and to outline principles to foster the improvement of the ITS in the Czech Republic.
Following steps were made during the project:
- analysis of the public transport network
- recommendations for changes in public transport
- improving public transport in the cities
- outlining principles to foster the improvement and preference of the public mass transport in urban areas
Integrated Transportation Systems (ITS) bring more effectiveness and a systemic solution in the public transport than the uncoordinated traffic does. Hradec Králové and its surroundings were studied to optimise the public transport network (PTN) and transfer junctions. PTN was analysed and after assessment proposals were made in order to introduce changes in PTN. Most of the derivative criteria can be understood universally and can be applied anywhere else in the Czech Republic.
Comprehensive solution regarding the introduction of the combined and integrated transportation systems is an integral part of optimal economical approach to the problems of transportation infrastructure, i.e., an effective split of the transported people and goods among the individual means of transport considering their advantages, and aiming at the highest possible productivity and economy.
