A trial using wireless communications technology to deliver real-time traffic information has been launched by New Zealand’s Ministry of Transport and AraFlow. The Co-operative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) trial will investigate whether providing accurate real-time information about traffic conditions to participating commercial transport operators improves the productivity of freight movements.

The Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) is requesting proposals on behalf of the Joint Program Office (JPO) of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) in the U.S. Department of Transportation from individuals interested in serving as Module Authors for the development of the ITS content of the Road Network Operations (RNO) ITS Web Resource to be published on the World Road Association PIARC website. The current proposed structure includes seven themes and twenty-five Modules. Prospective authors are asked to indicate which Module(s) they are qualified for and are proposing to cover in response to this RFP. Prospective authors may apply to author one or more Modules or all Modules within a Theme. A number of Module Authors may be chosen from this RFP.
ITS America will be accepting proposals until April 5, 2013 at 2 p.m. EDST.
The primary purpose of the World Road Association (PIARC) Road Network Operations ITS Web Resource is to provide the current and future ITS workforce with a web-based reference tool for decision-making regarding investments in ITS and related services, focusing on the needs of developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The PIARC RNO ITS Web Resource is intended to be a series of up-to-date, web-based modules that provide a basic introduction to key ITS topics, with an international perspective.

This research report reviews practice and standards for the implementation of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Standards in traffic management and proposes a best practice framework for Australia and New Zealand.
ITS deployment is based on diverse regional and jurisdictional standards and specifications. The US National Transportation Communications for Intelligent Transportation System Protocol (NTCIP) suite of ITS communications standards was found to largely exceed the ANZ requirements with only a few exceptions such as video signal transmission. The report recommends a migration of Centre to Field (C2F) communications to NTCIP as a nationally harmonised standard. It has been determined that the traffic signal network, which is already heavily networked on the SCATS and STREAMS platforms, should not be migrated to NTCIP due to the potentially high costs without commensurate additional benefit.
