Follow us on LinkedIn – The sheer increase in volume of vehicular traffic across the world over the last couple of decades and the inability of existing transport infrastructure to support the same, drives focus on the importance of monitoring and managing vehicular movement, and ensuring smooth flow of traffic. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), in this regard, is growing in popularity given the technology’s ability to ease congestion and improve road safety by effective monitoring and management of vehicular traffic. The technology also helps in reducing vehicle usage by strengthening public transport systems by improving service delivery to commuters. Intelligent Transportation System is the application of computer and communication technologies to transportation systems management. Of late, advancements in sensor technologies, cross deployment of engineering ideas and enhanced reliability of networking systems, have emerged as key enablers of ITS.
Rising impetus for enhancing road safety and escalating socio-environmental and economic implications of traffic congestion are key factors driving investments in ITS. Growing popularity and rising awareness of benefits will further boost market penetration of these systems. Sustainable transportation systems are the future of modern cities and the focus on efficient and environmentally friendly mobility will only gather additional focus in the coming years. With governments worldwide forced to improve transportation systems in a manner that reduces energy consumption, ITS with its ability to better balance scarce energy resources, individual and public transportation needs and reduce pollutant emissions, is poised to benefit.
Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) has been growing in demand encouraged by its growing use in tracking vehicular traffic in real time and using the same for ensuring signal control, and ramp metering. Adoption of tolling practices by governments worldwide to generate funds for infrastructure development and maintenance is lending traction to growth of ETC systems. Need to avoid lengthy waiting lines and reduce environmental pollution at toll plazas is also driving the demand for ETC systems.
