Synopsis

Combining a comprehensive definition of Intelligent Transport Systems with a review of experimental implementation of ITS in various countries around the world, this is an introduction to ITS concepts and implementation. Whether you're planning to convert existing roadway systems into the super-highway of tomorrow or you're charged with creating an entirely new roadway incorporating the best intelligent systems, this guide is designed to help you understand the technologies available and what kinds of success others have experienced with ITS already. The handbook provides 12 case studies and 21 country profiles in order to increase international understanding, ideas and solutions to common transportation problems of congestion, traffic accidents, planning for and funding of infrastructure improvements and changes, and the environmental impact of surface transport. There is critical insight into the areas of architecture and standards, evidence collected from PIARC surveys, and appendices with information on ITS Unit Costs, questionnaires for transitional countries, and a list and definition of acronyms.
