ITS Definition

Definition of Intelligent Transport Systems – ITS


ITS integrate telecommunications, electronics and information technologies - in short,  ‘telematics’ - with transport engineering in order to plan, design, operate, maintain and manage transport systems.


This integration aims to improve safety, security, quality and efficiency of the transport systems for passengers and freight, optimising the use of natural resources and respecting the environment.


To achieve such aims, ITS require procedures, systems and devices to allow the collection, communication, analysis and distribution of information and data among moving subjects, the transport infrastructure and information technology applications.
