Abstract

To better meet the challenge of providing effective, low-cost, energy efficient transport services, the concept of intelligent transport systems (ITS) has been proposed and lauded as an innovative and promising solution for next generation transport networks. In this paper, the progress of ITS research around the world is briefly reviewed and current challenges are outlined, thereby offering further insight into ITS development for all researchers in this area.
