Overview of ITS development in Malaysia

Realising the benefit of ITS on alleviating traffic congestion in urban areas, the Government has embarked on a pilot project to ease the traffic congestion in the densely populated Klang Valley. The "Integrated Transport Information System" or ITIS costing some RM 370 million is now at the stage of operation. The system is capable of detecting incidents and traffic congestion; analysing the traffic and calculating travel times. It will finally disseminate or update the information on the VMS (variable message signs) boards, which are strategically installed within the City of Kuala Lumpur and other communication media. The road users will be provided with real-time information on traffic conditions around the city. This would allow the road users to plan their journey and consequently reduce travel cost. In addition, this Advanced Traffic Management System or ATMS will provide an effective means of addressing the urban congestion through both pro-active and reactive strategies thereby ensuring smooth traffic movement.
