Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are vital to increase safety and tackle World's growing emission and congestion problems. They can make transport safer, more efficient and more sustainable by applying various information and communication technologies to all modes of passenger and freight transport. Moreover, due to future internet developments, the integration of existing technologies can create new services. ITS are key to support jobs and growth in the mobility and transport sector. But in order to be effective, the roll-out of ITS needs to be coherent and properly coordinated across the countries with a strong connection among players.

ITS will be used to improve journeys and operations on specific and combined modes of transport. Universities, Governmental Commissions and Researchers also work to set the ground for the next generation of ITS solutions, through the deployment of Cooperative-ITS, paving the way for automation in the transport sector. C-ITS are systems that allow effective data exchange through wireless technologies so that vehicles can connect with each other, with the road infrastructure and with other road users.
