ABSTRACT
THE INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS (ITS) AS A TOOL TO SOLVE CONGESTION PROBLEMS: THE CASE OF SEOUL By Andrea Milena Ramirez Peñaloza
Increases in the demand for transportation and the impossibility to indefinitely enlarge road infrastructures motivates one to look for alternative transportation solutions in order to mitigate congestion problems and improve vehicle flow. In East Asia, the congestion problems are getting worse day by day; the traffic situation is becoming chronic in major cities and around large towns. In this thesis we are concerned about the Korean case, specifically Seoul. Seoul is one of the highest populated cities in both the Asian Region and in the world, and of course, the traffic problem in the city is one of the main issues of this metropolis. At this point, the Intelligent
Transportation Systems (ITS) appear as excellent tools to help improve the situation. This thesis will study first the congestion theories; next the general theory of the ITS and its elements that could be useful to solve congestion problems; and finally, the specific case of Seoul and how the ITS tools have been used by the local government to improve the congestion situation.
