Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are vital to increase efficiency, safety, mobility, and tackle Europe’s growing emissions and congestion problems. ITS can make transport safer, more efficient, and more sustainable by applying information and communication technologies to all transportation modes. Moreover, the integration of existing technologies can create new services, contributing to increase companies’ competitiveness.
To achieve its full potential, ITS requires further research. With the globalization of trade and transportation and the consequent multi-modal solutions used, additional challenges are faced by organizations and countries, requiring ITS technologies to expand. The continuity of services is crucial as so it is the time required to fulfil the requests, the cost involved and the quality of services provided.
Adopting Intelligent Transport Systems involves dealing with some challenges, some of which are technological: deployment costs, funding restrictions that prevent investment facilitation, investments, privacy and liability concerns, uncertain demand, and lack of legislation, among others. Overcoming them can lead to the ability of more reliable and improved services.
Policy makers often do not master technological issues and being able to communicate the benefits of ITS in a clear and effective way is a challenge for faster deployment of ITS. Policy makers need a clear description of the benefits of new technologies including cost-benefit analyses that would enable them to compare traditional solutions with the new ones.
Academic development on ITS would benefit from the interaction in industry. Overcoming the gap between the more long-term perspective of outcomes from academia and the short-term need of results from the industry is an additional challenge that needs to be addressed.
The outcomes of ITS research can benefit from the interaction with other research areas, such as logistics and operations management, architecture and urbanism, among others. Nonetheless, eventually due to lack of opportunity to cooperate, this interaction is not found often and poses as another of the challenges ITS faces.
INTSYS 2019 is part of the 5th annual Smart City 360˚Summit, promoting multidisciplinary scientific collaboration to solve complex societal, technological and economic problems of emerging Smart Cities.
The objective of the conference is threefold:
1.To enable researchers in ITS to share their achievements and findings in different areas of Intelligent Transport Systems and logistics
2.To bring together the relevant ITS stakeholders and to address the following questions:
- What role has research and end users in the development of ITS solutions?
- How can the industry maximise the use of research outcomes?
- Can there be intelligent logistics operations in city distribution process?
3. Raise collaboration among different research fields
- Logistics and operations management – Impact of operations management in city logistics process – the impact of logistics operation on traffic, problems of loading\unloading operations in city distribution process
- Architecture and Urbanism – Raise discussion on intelligent urban construction for smart mobility. What is the role of architecture in ITS and smart cities?
