What is it about?

While Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) is supposed to be "smart," recent advances in Information and communications technology (ICT) can further enhance its "smartness." This paper discusses the many ways to achieve this.

Why is it important?

With the introduction of connected vehicles and automatic vehicles, for example, the entire ITS scene is likely to be drastically altered. This paper would help to anticipate such disruptive technologies. More important, it suggests ways to harness their power to make ITS even more" intelligent."


This article was precipitated by my participation in the Chan Wui & Yunyin Rising Star Workshop, a prestigious gathering of a handful of worldwide experts on the Queen Mary II to discuss the intersection between mobility and communication. It afforded an opportunity for me to reflect upon the ITS work that I have performed over the last one and a half decades, viewing it afresh through the lens of the emerging technological scene.
