Study on the Intelligent Transport System and Social Economic Development

High unemployment, languid economic growth and growing urbanization make transport's role in driving growth more important than ever. Problems relating to congestion, the environment and safety, as well as opportunities presented by growing data and smarter consumers, must be addressed to help support job creation and growth. The intelligent transportation systems (ITS) industry is helping build transport systems that address these issues. Based on historic data from the economy and transportation, this paper studies the qualitative analysis for the interaction system which is composed of regional societal economy, traffic, and transportation. Firstly, the correlations among every index are analyzed by the increasing rate curves. Secondly, the evidence outlined in this paper clearly demonstrates the numerous benefits smarter and more intelligent transportation systems can offer. In the end, the authors give some advice to the government, cities, and the ITS industry, so as to sustain and enhance the benefits from ITS.
