Abstract

It is now becoming recognized that the traffic signals alone cannot solve congestion oriented transportation problems in principle while enhancements are added to the system. A new way recently being studied is providing drivers with real-time traffic information on trip time, congestion, accidents, restrictions and regulations, construction, parking lots and so forth. This makes drivers themselves select and use less busy routes with priority. Consequently, it reduces travel time, energy consumption, air pollution and increases safety, mobility, economic productivity, and efficiency of road networks. This combination of information, communication and transportation is called an intelligent transport system (ITS). Recently, the Korean government has initiated a comprehensive ITS development programme. This paper describes the programme briefly.
