MOVEMENT IN DIVERSITY : AITS INDIA, AS SECRETARIAT ITS ASIA-PACIFIC 2005, REVIEWS ITS PROGRESS AND PROSPECTS IN THE REGION

This article examines Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) progress and its prospects in various Asian and Asian-Pacific countries, ranging from Japan, Singapore, and Australia, to China, India and Taiwan. The author notes that the history, culture and political systems of individual countries have affected their transportation networks and systems. Japan, for example has become a leader in ITS due to a highly socially-responsive and responsible society, as well as a highly technologically-responsive society. India, on the other hand, has suffered from fragmented national policy-making and an academic tradition strong in education but weak in mainstream applications. Australia’s innovative advancements in transportation and traveler information systems are also mentioned.
