Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) for sustainable mobility


Intelligent Transport Systems play an important role in shaping the future ways of mobility and the transport sector. We expect that through the use of ITS applications transport will become more efficient, safer and greener. The huge potentials and benefits, however, can only be reaped if ITS solutions are put in place - internationally harmonized as much as possible.
