Intelligent Transport Systems

Published: 2 December 2009

Policies & Issues: Industrial Policy

In the context of the follow-up to the Electra report, Orgalime’s electrical and electronic industry supports the proposed framework Directive and Action Plan of the European Commission on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and the four 'priority areas' as defined in article 4§1 in particular: optimal use of road, traffic and travel data; continuity of traffic and freight management ITS services; road safety and security; integration of the vehicle into the transport infrastructure.

Therefore Orgalime calls on the European Parliament and the Council of the EU to adopt it quickly, so as to facilitate the provision of services, mainly by private operators, as a cost-efficient answer to all stakeholders’ needs, on the model of Galileo.
