The Intelligent Transport System

The Intelligent Transport System

Transport is vital for the global economy. Commercial vehicles, buses, cars, air crafts, ships, and rail roads facilitate physical interaction and trade. Transport systems currently endeavour to keep up with the global connected economy. Export and import of goods account for about three quarters of the global gross domestic product.1 Moreover, the demand for urban mobility is expected to increase by 2.6times by 2050.

The Intelligent Transport System (ITS) is destined to solve the problem of demand for urban mobility.

ITS is an intelligent system based on innovations in transport system modelling and traffic management providing the end users with better information and safety as well as efficiently improving the level of road user interaction compared to standard transport systems.

First developments of intelligent transport systems are dated back to 1980-s, and last decades saw their wide-spread implementation across the world.

In Russia, development and implementation of intelligent transport systems at the national level started in 2008 with adoption of RF Transport Strategy through 2030 which is based on the use of such systems. Nowadays, implementation of the national project on Safe and Quality Roads provides a fertile field for development of smart roads based on ITS. The project anticipates normalisation of the Russian road network and reduction of accident clusters.

ITS capabilities

The growth of the intelligent transport system market is triggered by the capability of ITS to comprehensively address a range of critical issues:

and other

Nowadays, ITS in Russia is as relevant as ever, which is primarily due to the growing traffic load and large traffic jams.

Another important and even wider area of ITS application is traffic safety, where huge popularity has been gained by traffic violation recording cameras. They detect various violations (from speeding to complex  violations at cross-roads, pedestrian crossings, railroad crossings), recognise licence plates, create and deliver the evidence base to data centres.

Information technology covers public transport as well: intelligent CCTV to detect lost things and public nuisance, control and dispatching sub-systems, vehicle and vehicle–infrastructure communication and interaction systems to optimise routes.

Last but not least, one more area of wide application of ITS is traffic management, where IT is used to monitor traffic situation and notify the situation centre of various incidents. ATCS, to which adaptive control traffic lights systems and information boards are connected, ensures real-time traffic management and control. When ATCS operates in connection with the meteorological station, it can provide information about roadway condition, weather conditions, operation of road services (wind direction and speed, precipitation level and pattern, reagents on roads, etc.).

ITS efficiency

The benefits of intelligent transport systems have been recognised all around the world, and government initiatives support ITS further development in various countries.

The effect of ITS implementation can be assessed in quantitative indicators:

Korda Group offers the RF entities to develop the project on implementation and operation of intelligent transport systems in order to receive inter-budget transfers in 2020–2024 under implementation of the federal project on System-Wide Measures on Road Industry Development of the national project on Safe and Quality Roads.

Send your application and our specialists will take the survey of the region to define the problems and transport system needs and use the survey results (according to RF Ministry of Transport Methodology No.AK-60-r dated 25.03.2020) to:
