ITS Implementation, the Swedish Way, “Interaction”

The congestion in our transport systems increases when the population in urban areas expands. The demand for effective and environmentally friendly transport will increase. Security is increasingly prioritized. Challenges are great and numerous for all modes of transport, Intelligent transport systems and services (ITS) offers many tools that can help to meet these. ITS's potential is great, and it is time that this was utilized. In 2010, the Government appointed a national ITS Board for the purpose of speeding up the process of introducing ITS in Sweden in order to reach the transport and industrial policy objectives. The ITS Board has three tasks: the first task is to develop forms of cooperation between public authorities and enterprise, the second task is to provide advice on and accelerate the Swedish Transport Administration and other authorities' process of implementing the action plan, "Multi-modal strategy and action plan for the use of ITS". The third task is to promote increased Swedish action in the EU in the area of ITS. At the same time, the Swedish Transport Administration received a government commission regarding a coordinating responsibility for the implementation and follow-up of the work in accordance with: "Multi-modal strategy and action plan for the use of ITS1”. To understand what Sweden is doing to deploy ITS, the paper will describe what has been done and what will we do in our country in this field to provide readers (and audience) with the richness of our experience to better understand the real plans and experience in implementing ITS.
