History of ITS services and technologies: role of communications for road safety

The beginnings of intelligent transport systems are motivated by mobility enhancement for citizens to meet socio-economic requirements. The integration of road safety is rapidly highlighted as a necessary aspect for the development and evolution of ITS. This paper presents the chronological evolution of several research themes from the first programs around the world. Through ITS historic evolution, a diversity of technologies and innovative solutions were developed. Among these advances, we consider guiding systems, Vehicle and Intelligent Highway (IVHS), traffic management, electronic payment, information on public transportation, traveler information systems, commercial vehicles etc. Communication technologies play a crucial role in many ITS solutions and particularly for road safety. They were considered for efficient incident management first and nowadays they represent an important base for connected and autonomous vehicles success. Among processing techniques for ITS services optimization, the role of metaheuristics is highlighted.
