  • 1. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATIONFEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE IRF Policy Committee on ITS Josef A. Czako, Chairman Summit in Cape Town, 8 March 2012 «ITS as THE Driver of Economic Growth and Development « Better roads, better world.
  • 2. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATIONFEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE Worldwide Challenges in Road Transport 1. Environment Protection 2. Congestion Reduction 3. Road Safety 4. Financing of Infrastructure Better roads, better world.
  • 3. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE The Role of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for Sustainable Mobilityin Road Transport Better roads, better world.
  • 4. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE What is Sustainable Mobility?1. Sustainable Mobility for People and Goods =  Safe (Accidents, Fatalities)  Environmental Friendly (CO2 neutral)  Efficient (Cost Effective, Lowest Congestion)  User Friendly, Accessible2. Sustainable Mobility is a Human Right ?3. Sustainable Mobility is a prec for economic growth! Better roads, better world.
  • 5. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALEFEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE What are (ITS) Policies? A policy is typically described as a set of principles or rules to guide decisions and achieve described objectives. Better roads, better world Better roads, better world.
  • 6. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALEFEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE Why Policy is important for ITS Deployment To achieve the required cooperation towards solving mobility challenges, ITS deployment involves; • Exchange of knowledge • Sharing of best practices • Simplification of legislation • Standard setting and facilitating interoperability • Guidance and raising awareness • New legislation, if necessary; and • Coordination to make better use for the available funding. Better roads, better world Better roads, better world.
  • 7. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALEFEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE ITS deployment is being influenced by many policy areas • Mobility policies: acknowledging the role and importance of transport and mobility for social and economic integration and development of regions, states and nations • Environment policies: aiming to protect the environment (air, noise, water, soil, natural habitat), to mitigate current environment impacts of transport and to adapt transport infrastructure to changing conditions due to climate change • Transport funding and investment policies: determining the funding sources, revenues and priorities for transport infrastructure investment, maintenance and operation • Spatial planning policies: determining the physical grid and spacing of different functions such as living, studying, working, relaxing and hence impacting on mobility needs. • Social policies: shaping the social context in which people use transport such as accessibility, affordability, connectivity (of modes), timing due to working and related activities Better roads, better world Better roads, better world.
  • 8. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATIONFEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALEITS Policy Objectives to address the challenges Optimising Financing traffic road flow, reduce infrastructure congestion Protecting Improving the road safety environment Better roads, better world.
  • 9. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE ITS for financing of road infrastructure Role of ITS  Apply the “User pays principle” to finance roadGovernment budgets infrastructure (ear-markedare insufficient to funding) and to internalize external costsfund widening and  Finance general budget, tomaintenance of road cross-finance other modes ofinfrastructure transport and to make road transport directly comparable (in prices) to other modes of transport Better roads, better world.
  • 10. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALEITS to optimize traffic flow & reduce congestion Role of ITS :Urban Congestion in the US:  Create a traffic management 4,2 billion hours wasted tool or “steering mechanism” in traffic jams, to make better use of existing infrastructure, to optimize = US $ 87 billion capacity of the network and to congestion costs (2007) better distribute traffic  Apply pricing strategies to setCongestion in the European incentives to users to chooseUnion: different routes, different departure times or different 1,9 % of GDP “eaten” by modes of transport congestion,  Assure high level of service to = € 233 billion congestion travellers (provision of real costs time information, smooth traffic, ..) Better roads, better world.
  • 11. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE ITS for protecting the environment Role of ITS:  Reduce emissions through smoothed traffic  Adapt drivers behavior toWHO - World Health real time situation (e.g. highOrganization: particulate concentration, slippery lanes, ..)  Assure seamless linkagesUrban air pollution kills between different modes of~ 1.2 million people transport to offer theannually! “greenest” routing  Show one’s carbon footprint and valorize ecological behavior (e.g. mobility card/points, ..) Better roads, better world.
  • 12. INTERNATIONAL ROAD FEDERATION FEDERATION ROUTIERE INTERNATIONALE ITS to improve road safety Role of ITS  Provide real timeUnited Nations: information to users ( 1,3 million “road conditions of road, deaths” a year ! weather, traffic flow, ..) 50 million people  Smoothen traffic flow and injured ! prevent speed variations Costing society  Enforce speeding 100 billion US$  Detect incidents, shorten annually reaction times for appropriate rescue measures Better roads, better world.
