1 What are Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) ? The application of advanced sensor, computer, electronics, and communications technologies and management strategies – in an integrated manner – providing traveler information - to increase the safety and efficiency of the surface transportation system.The application of advanced sensor, computer, electronics, and communications technologies and management strategies – in an integrated manner – providing traveler information - to increase the safety and efficiency of the surface transportation system.

2 Current Technology Innovation Larger storage Cheaper Faster processors Smart cards Voice/ writing input High-quality video and graphics Flat, high- resolution screens

3 Future Wide Area Bandwidth GenerationSpeedTechnologyApplication Modem, ISDN Text great, Pictures OK Narrowband(Today) ISDN, PC cable modem Pictures great, Video OK Midband (1-2 years) Broadband (2+ years) Internet 2 Video great (k-baud/sec.)
