IMPACT OF ITS ON ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AND EFFICIENCY

This paper begins by looking at past trends in transport, and predictions of future growth, to establish and quantify the problems. It then discusses possible responses to the problems of congestion and environmental damage in the context of a TRL study of future transport developments. It goes on to examine in more depth the contribution which ITS can make towards solving these problems by improving the vehicles and modifying travel demand. Finally, it looks at potential benefits from ITS. (A)
