The Future of Intelligent Transport Systems considers ITS from three perspectives: users, business models and regulation/policy. Topics cover in-vehicle applications, such as autonomous driving, vehicle-to-vehicle/vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, and related applications, such as personalized mobility. The book also examines ITS technology enablers, such as sensing technologies, wireless communication, computational technology, user behavior as part of the transportation chain, financial models that influence ITS, regulations, policies and standards affecting ITS, and the future of ITS applications. Users will find a holistic approach to the most recent technological advances and the future spectrum of mobility.

Key Features

  • Systematically presents the whole spectrum of next generation Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) technologies
  • Integrates coverage of personalized mobility and digital assistants, big data analytics and autonomous driving
  • Includes end-of-chapter, open-ended questions that trigger thinking on the technological, managerial and regulatory aspects of ITS


Researchers and postgraduate students in Intelligent Transportation Systems and Transport Engineering, Planning, Systems Management, and Networks; planning professionals, local governmental authorities, city administrations, city planners, transportation authorities
