Digital Technology is an enabling factor in various domains including transportation. The digital technologies that drive the smart transport are known as ITS or Intelligent Transport Systems. Today the Internet of Vehicle, the Big data analytic of traffic flow, the GPS tracking, the variable traffic sign, the Connected car, the area traffic control, the Automated car, the road pricing with RF-ID, the Transit mobile app - these are considered as the ITS.
Why? The ITS ultimated goals are to provide a road safety, high mobility (performance and comfortable) and greener transport.
How? The technology alone could not chage the mobility experience. It requires Hardware (product, infrastructure and etc), Software (Standard, policy, regulation and etc) and Peopleware (user, developer and etc). The ITS Thailand core function is to orchestrate these components and harmonize them with the resources, the requirement and the culture in the country.
Who are we?
There exist ITS organization in each country like ITS Japan, ITS America, ITS Australia and etc. For Thailand, the Thai Intelligent Transport Systems Association or ITS Thailand has been establish in February 25th, 2008. It is a community of academic, industrial and government person in the ITS value-chain with a common vision “toward a better life with ITS”.
