Intelligent transport systems (ITS) and road safety

Many developments are taking place in the area of intelligent transport systems (ITS) for traffic purposes. Many of the current ITS applications are mainly aimed at increasing comfort while driving and at improving accessibility. In addition, systems like the alcolock and the seatbelt lock are being developed with the primary aim of road safety. There are also systems, such as advanced cruise control and dynamic route information panels, that are not specifically intended to improve road safety, but that can have an effect. There are high expectations for the positive effects of ITS applications. Public and political support, a possibly gradual introduction and cooperation between all parties involved are essential for successful implementation.
