Title: The opportunity for developing Intelligent Transport Systems with FOSS4G.
Intelligent Tranpsort Systems (ITS) are advanced application and service in transportation where the ICT is the key solution that creates innovaive ITS for safety, convenience and environment friendly.The FOSS4G, Open Data and Open Standard would play a major role in the ITS development.This talk will raise the requirement in ITS applications. We have seen ITS application based on geoinfomatics like waze, Uber and Google transit. There will be more rooms of opportunity for better service and more idea of innovative ITS if FOSS4G get involve. Let’s share the experience and idea.
