Intelligent transport systems: what contributes best to the NZTS objectives?

The purpose of this study has been to document international experience on the benefits gained from the implementation of ITS, and to compare these benefits with the key outcomes sought in the New Zealand Transport Strategy (NZTS) and Land Transport Management Act (LTMA). The report provides guidance on the ways in which different ITS initiatives can contribute to these objectives. Using a matrix structure, each application has been assessed, in terms of the types of benefits produced, considering each benefit area in the context of the scale of overall benefits. Following this matrix based assessment each application is summarised, setting out the types and scale of benefits produced by different ITS applications, potential problem areas and conditions in which they are best applied. The conclusions identify the systems or groups of systems that have the greatest potential to provide benefits in the context of the NZTS and LTMA objectives. The highest rated applications include a strong focus on travel demand monitoring, management and control, as well as the early detection and management of specific problems, monitoring road weather conditions, prediction of adverse conditions, informing drivers and assisting in more effective response and treatment.
