ITS Operation in Singapore

Similar to many vibrant economies in the world, Singapore faces the challenge of keeping its ever increasing traffic moving on its limited road space. It relies on the use of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) to manage more than a 930,000 vehicle population in this city state that covers just 710km2. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is responsible for the development, operation and maintenance of ITS in Singapore. The main system includes the Expressway Monitoring and Advisory System (EMAS) that is used as a traffic incident management tool, a computerised area-wide adaptive traffic signal management system named Green Link Determining (GLIDE) and Junction Eyes System (JEYES) that regulates and monitors flow at signalized junctions, Parking Guidance System (PGS) and traffic information dissemination tools through Internet and radio. ITS will remain a critical part of land transport solutions to meet the many challenges ahead. Singapore played host to a number of international events in the past few years. Among the most significant events that took place is the Formula One (F1) Singapore Grand Prix, a true street circuit in the heart of a city. This paper documents the various ITS adopted in Singapore and uses the F1 Grand Prix based on a street circuit as an example to illustrate the capabilities of integrating these ITS.
