Towards Intelligent Transport - Case Finland

The paper analyses the deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in Finland related to international trends as well as national and international policies. The paper includes an inventory of primary obstacles in ITS deployment and present models for efficient utilization of ITS. It is recommended to constantly seek for global success opportunities by large-scale pilots together with companion countries. The public sector should provide strategic leadership to the development and create prerequisites for ITS markets. Real-time network operation is a key task of the transport administrations. ITS actions should especially focus in large scale deployment of effective and efficient solutions. Such solutions include incident management, public transport services, eLogistics, urban mobility and traffic management, outsourced automated enforcement, road use charging, maritime traffic management, vessel traffic monitoring and control, train control, and utilization of satellite positioning. Finally, the paper recommends the roles and tasks for the Ministry of Transport and Communications Finland and its administrations.
