Intro to ITS in MS

  2. 2. Learning Objectives<br />Definition of ITS<br />Why ITS is important <br />ITS benefits<br />Major ITS areas<br />ITS in Mississippi<br />
  3. 3. Transportation Facts<br />Americans lose 4.2 billion hours annually in traffic jams<br />Americans burn 2.8 billion gallons of gas in traffic jams<br />The cost of sitting in traffic congestion costs travelers and businesses $87 billion each year.<br />
  4. 4. What are Intelligent Transportation Systems?<br />The application of high technology and computer power to current freeway, traffic, and transit systems to increase the safety and efficiency of the surface transportation system.<br />Have the potential to solve future problems.<br />
  5. 5. ITS is..<br />...Traffic and Transit Management<br />
  6. 6. ITS is…<br />…Traffic Signal Systems<br />
  7. 7. ITS is …<br />…Global Positioning Systems<br />
  8. 8. ITS is…<br />Weather Information Systems<br />Commercial Vehicle Electronic Clearance<br />
  9. 9. ITS is…<br />…Real Time Traveler Information<br />
  10. 10. Why is ITS Important?<br />Offers the next major leap forward in improving safety, convenience, and productivity of our personal and commercial travel.<br />Critical as population and congestion increase, and land and funding for new roads decrease.<br />
  11. 11. What are we doing differently?<br />Improving productivity through advanced technology and management techniques<br />Operating existing programs more efficiently <br />Integrating systems<br />Providing travel information<br />
  12. 12. ITS Benefits<br />Time Savings<br />Improved Traffic Flow<br />Reduced Crashes and Fatalities<br />Cost Avoidance<br />Increased Traveler Satisfaction<br />Energy and Environmental Benefits<br />
  13. 13. Major ITS Areas<br />Multimodal Travel Management and Traveler Information<br />Commercial Vehicle Operations<br />Advanced Vehicle Control and Safety Systems<br />
