Title: ITS for Road Transport in Countries with Developing and Transitional Economy

ITS for Road Transport in Countries with
Developing and Transitional Economy
  • Toshiyuki Yokota, TUDTR
  • World Bank

  • What is ITS
  • Current status of ITS in countries with
    developing and transitional economy
  • Key knowledge for successful ITS Deployment
  • Conclusion

What is ITS
  • Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)
  • Application of information technologies
    (computers, sensors, and wired and wireless
    communications, Data base, etc.)
  • ITS is one of Knowledge Economy
  • Economy comes to place a great importance on the
    role of Knowledge which is seen as an important
    production factor along with labor and capital
    (e.g. electronic money)

ITS in Knowledge Economy
  • ITS is expected to create growth factors in Japan
  • ITS related market size(2015) 500Billion
  • Economic effect of ITS to all industries(2015)
  • Jobs created in ITS related market 1 Million
    Jobs (2015)

Domestic market size of IT-related industries
ITS is related to various benefits
What is ITS
  • Classification of ITS in the TOOLKIT
  • Traveler Information
  • Traffic/Road Management
  • Demand Management
  • Electronic Financial Transactions
  • Commercial Vehicle Management
  • Public Transport Management
  • Incident and Hazard Response

Traffic/Road Management
  • Management of traffic flow on roads
  • Physical maintenance of roads, winter viability
    of roads, etc.
  • Inductive loops are used to obtain information on
    traffic volume, speeds and traffic composition.
    Traffic conditions are captured in real-time by
    CCTVs and the relevant organizations can quickly
    respond when there is an accident or when a
    vehicle breaks down. (China)

Annex examples of benefit
  • Shorter Traveling Times According to FHWAs ITS
    Benefits 2001 Update, on-board navigation
    experiment for one year showed delay reduction of
    8.1 and fuel consumption decrease of 3.
  • Increased Capacity and Throughput FHWAs ITS
    Benefits 2001 Update points out that the freeway
    management system in Minneapolis Saint Paul
    increased the throughput by 16.3.
  • Improved User Satisfaction In Michigan, U.S.,
    72 of the surveyed drivers felt better off
    because of signal control improvement.
  • Reduced Environmental Burdens ERTICOs ITS
    Toolbox gives the example of the PROMT project
    for influence on air pollution, mentioning a
    simulated 23.3 reduction of vehicle stoppage, 5
    reduction of fuel consumption and 4 to 5
    decrease of CO2, NOX and CO emissions in
    Gothenburg, Sweden.
  • Less Traffic Rule Violations and Unlawful Use of
    Roads There have also been reports of these
    cameras resulting in a 15 to 40 reduction in
    accidents caused by drivers failing to heed
    traffic signals (Research in Europe).
  • Benefit/Cost Ratios for Selected Technologies
    (PIARC, 2000)
