Problems caused by urban traffic get more serious every day for people living in cities. Due to the rise in commuting time in public transport, unpunctuality, pollution, acoustic contamination, etc…
To control all these problems, people turn increasingly to ITS systems, computer science and telecommunication systems that support intelligent traffic management.
The ITS systems have several applications, they help in the process of management and distribution of merchandise and in the transport of passengers.
They also provide traffic information to the users of different systems using ITS, such as the TravInfo system which is used to plan trips since it informs on the state of the driver’s planned route and gives alternatives depending on traffic.
The intelligent transport systems optimise the existing infrastructure, increase the security levels and contribute to a sustainable transport system, reducing contamination.
