Intelligent Transportation Systems
Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are the integrated application of various technologies and management strategies to provide traveler information to increase the safety and efficiency of the surface transportation system.
The Indianapolis Regional ITS Architecture is intended to promote continued improvements in the movement of goods and people throughout the region through the implementation of ITS strategies, technologies, and projects. Most importantly, the deployment of these ITS strategies, technologies, and infrastructure will help to make the metropolitan Indianapolis transportation system safer, better coordinated, and more efficient. In addition, by taking a cooperative multi-agency approach, the MPO and partner agencies will be able to better integrate ITS related efforts beyond their boundaries, pool funds, and deploy ITS technologies and projects that benefit not only the Indianapolis region, but the entire State of Indiana.
