Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) for sustainable mobility

The world’s citizens depend on safe, efficient and secure transport systems. Whether we travel by road, boat, rail or air, we rely on our transportation systems to get us where we need to go. The same systems play an important role in our national economic well-being, making it possible to move goods from place to place and to succeed in the global marketplace. Starting from an overview of the actions so far initiated by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), the final aim of this document is to produce a policy vision summarizing and addressing the opportunities created by the application of new technologies in transport, and consequently to draft action proposals for the implementation of ITS.
