ITS - The Key of Traffic Transportation Sustainable Development


Article Preview

Present sustainable development is one of the hot topics in the world, and the traffic transportation system is regarded as a subsystem of the social economic system. There is important strategic position in the development of national economy. There are important realistic meanings to study the sustainable development of the transportation system. This paper focused on the analyzing the major traffic problem in sustainable development of the transportation, proposed the intellectual transportation system (ITS) is the key to achieving development of the transportation in China, and discussing how to make use of transportation system of intelligence to achieving sustainable development strategy of the traffic system, some suggestions on developing program and the application of the system architecture in future are presented.
