what is its
What is ITS?
  • ITS = Intelligent Transport Systems
    • Combined Information Technology & Telecommunications
  • Applicable to road, rail, air and sea transport
    • Improves travel security and journey safety
    • Efficient transport using electronic systems to improve traffic control & enforcement of traffic regulations
    • Effective management of vehicle fleets
    • ‘On-line’ information - bus/train passengers
its technologies
ITS Technologies
  • ANPR = Automatic Number Plate Recognition
    • Terrorism / Crime / Intelligence
  • EVI = Electronic Vehicle Identification
    • Crime Reduction / Road User Charging
  • CCTV = ‘intelligent’ CCTV / EPOS / Facial Recognition / VOIP / WiIP
