This article describes the growth of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in Europe over the past ten years. Noting that by 1994 the basic infrastructure for ITS had begun to take shape, ten specific areas for action had been identified. They included travel and traffic information, digital maps, digital broadcasting, automatic vehicle identification, mobile telephony, human machine interface, standardization, traffic data exchange/information management, electronic fee collection, and system architecture. The author describes where each of these areas was ten years ago and the progress to date. He concludes that ITS has moved into the center of transportation policy as a mainstream activity.
