Global Intelligent Transportation System

The presented concept of Global Intelligent Transportation System (GITS) consists of two subsystems: Ground and Sea. An element of both subsystems is an unmanned Automated Vehicle (AV) that may be considered as a hybrid of conventional motor vehicle and rail electric vehicle. It is possible to say that it is a high speed truck or trolleybus. GITS is not a breakthrough but it is an evolutionary step relating to railroad systems that are nearly 200 years old and to motor vehicle systems that are nearly 100 years old. Using the achievements of contemporary control and communication systems, there is a good chance to make an automatic transportation system today that may be economically effective, environmentally friendly and safe. It is possible to say that GITS is a concept of Transport Internet.
