Challenges and the Technology with a focus on Smart Cities

 

ITS Required

National Transport Development Policy Committee (NTDPC 2032) envisaged several ICT applications in urban transport in near future, as  indicated below.

  • Advanced Vehicle Safety systems
  • Cashless Toll Collection
  • Fare integration through Common Mobility Card (UMC) / UID
  • High Level Analytics.
  • Integrated information across modes
  • Intelligent Traffic Management Systems
  • Predictive Traffic Management
  • Real time passenger information system
  • Real time traffic control and adaptive signals
  • Seamless Intelligent Transportation Systems
  • Vehicle tracking system

Intelligent Transport System (ITS) is the brain of the smart city. Some of the technologies envisaged for smart cities are (www.abiresearch.com):

  • Multimodal Transportation and Traveler Information Systems
  • Public Transportation Ticketing and Mobile Payments
  • Traffic Management Systems
  • Cooperative ITS, V2V, V2I, and Intelligent Road Infrastructure
  • Freight Solutions
  • Car and Bike Rental and Sharing
  • On-demand Taxis
  • ETC: Congestion Zones and Road User Charging
  • Autonomous Vehicles

Proper implementation of all the above technologies leads to

  • Achieve optimum utilization of transport network
  • Better passenger satisfaction
  • Improve safety.
  • Improve the predictability of the transport network
  • Increase the transport system management efficiency
  • Increase the utilization of Public Transport System
  • Integrated multi modal transport system
  • Reduce congestion
