3 3 The term intelligent transportation systems (ITS) refers to information and communication technology applied to transport infrastructure and vehicles that improve transport outcomes. What is Smart Transport? ITS provide a comprehensive real-time, data-driven capability for designing and implementing policies and operational strategies for traffic, public transport, and urban planning.

6 6 What is Smart Transport? Technology to implement a smart transport system is available today All around the world, economic stimulus is being injected by governments, much of it aimed at smart grids, healthcare, data integrationand crucially, smart transportationto improve the systems that make our world work.

8 Imagine if all the objects in the world had all the information that they needed to function optimally. Buildings would adjust themselves according to the temperature. Ovens would cook things for exactly the right time. The handles of umbrellas would glow when it was about to rain.

9 as computers and cell phones continue to pervade our daily activities and as millions of networked sensors are being embedded in these devices (as well as in automobiles, smart meters, and other machines), the amount of data available for analysis is exploding.

10 We have become a social networking culture, and this behaviour is permeating every area of our lives. Even solo activities like using search engines is becoming socialized, as is shopping, travel, education and even work. Source getelastic.com, 2012 Influential world trends 10

14 CVHS will reduce accidents and improve the performance and efficiency of existing road infrastructure while reducing fuel use, emissions and congestion. What can we expect to see? 14 Cooperative Vehicle Highway Systems Road Users of the future will have access to all necessary information at all times, irrespective of mode, in order to provide informed travel choice and options as the journey unfolds.

15 What can we expect to see? 15 Autonomous Car Cars that drive by themselves can aid the handicapped, reduce congestion and remove human error thus improving road safety. Driverless trucks, operating as road trains, can gain up to 20% fuel savings due to reduced air drag. In 2010 Google built a fleet of 7 self- driving cars collectively traversing 140,000 miles. Just about every traditional car maker is now developing its own self driving model.

16 What can we expect to see? 16 It's a sad statement about the direction that western society is heading, but it's a reality nonetheless. Being able to use drive times to do work, spend time with family, or simply relax is a clear potential benefit of having an autonomous car. The trend towards autonomy will become a juggernaut fuelled by social computing and companies such as Google that see the potential of the dashboard as the next expansion of the web Turn the corner Bern Grush Transport Technology International June/July 2011

20 Are we ready? 20 These are the basic building blocks, that must be in place, in order for us to take advantage of any smart transport initiative being implemented throughout the world. Identify a lead agency capable of embracing Smarter Transport initiatives, an agency who can… Provide us with a clear vision and strategy Establish and agree on common data standards and architecture Collaborate and cooperate with a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure we successfully implement integrated smart transport solutions Identify a lead agency capable of embracing Smarter Transport initiatives, an agency who can… Provide us with a clear vision and strategy Establish and agree on common data standards and architecture Collaborate and cooperate with a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure we successfully implement integrated smart transport solutions We identify a leader

21 Are we ready? 21 Smart transport is in everyones interest: it can save lives, time, money, energy and the environment whilst also addressing our Governments current transport policy focus of Economic growth and productivity, value for money, and safety Smart transport is in everyones interest: it can save lives, time, money, energy and the environment whilst also addressing our Governments current transport policy focus of Economic growth and productivity, value for money, and safety In conclusion
