The future of transportation is here. That future involves the installation of technology as part of an overall strategy to reduce the impacts of congestion and provide for hassle-free traveling.
Consider for instance, heading to work knowing you are taking the quickest path given current traffic conditions. How would you like to be assured that busses, trains, and planes are keeping to schedule? These things and more are all possible and are happening now through Intelligent Transportation Systems, or ITS for short.
Today, in Rhode Island, we have taken a big step towards realizing the ITS vision for managing transportation. Thanks to technology you can now access roadway information by opening your Internet browser and viewing camera images statewide.
Commercial vehicle operators are linked together to receive vital information concerning roadway conditions that may require trucks diverting to alternate routes to ensure the delivery of goods and services.
ITS makes many things possible. In combination with an improved roadway infrastructure, ITS will save time, money, and lives, while offering a promising solution to the pressing problem of congestion.
