Appropriate to the needs of the 21st century for sustainable mobility of people and goods, for the efficiency, safety and environmental performance of transport, and for the interaction of various transport modes working together in sophisticated logistic chains, the European Union stress the role of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Services. Intelligent Transport Systems are a key component in encouraging a thriving modern economy and improved living standards of people.
With the »Intelligent Car Initiative« and numerous research and deployment projects the EU is stimulating and supporting the development and deployment of ITS in the road transport area, through ERMTS/ETCS (European Rail Traffic Management System/European Train Control System) in the rail sector, with SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) in the air sector, through »Motorways in the Sea« in the sea programme and with the GALILEO satellite navigation system, in public as well as in private usage.
Intelligent Transport Systems – ITS offers excellent support in planning, controlling, managing, and ensuring transport services in road, railway, air and sea transportation. ITS should help to achieve the so called »Zero Vision« in the area of transport systems. Integrating the currently available and emerging information, computer, communications and vehicle-sensing technologies into the transport infrastructure and vehicles these technologies help; monitor and manage traffic flows; reduce congestion and pollutant emissions; enhance safety, security, productivity, mobility, and save lives, time and money.
We are convinced that these are hot topics and that a relevant wide public discussion is needed. Discussion of all other aspects connected with electronics in traffic will, of course, be welcomed, too.
The traditional ISEP International Symposium is an excellent opportunity for establishing personal contacts. If you have a problem that needs to be solved or you have a solution to the problems that will be dealt with at this year’s ISEP, do join us.
PhD Transport Research Day
We are happy to announce ISEP 2007 will involve a PhD Transport Research Day, where PhD students who are involved in current state-of-the-art research and practical issues concerning ITS systems will have an opportunity to present their work to a knowledgeable audience.
The official language of the Symposium is English.
