Association information

Intelligent Transport Systems Australia (ITS Australia) promotes the development and deployment of advanced technologies to deliver safer, more efficient and environmentally sustainable transport across all public and private modes – air, sea, road and rail.

Established in 1992, ITS Australia is an independent not-for-profit incorporated membership organisation representing ITS suppliers, government authorities, academia and transport businesses and users. Affiliated with peak ITS organisations around the world, ITS Australia is a major contributor to the development of the industry.

Key activities include convening national summits and international conferences, facilitating dialogue between transport modes and across government jurisdictions, promoting research and development and the export of Australian technologies.

ITS Australia advocates the application of communication, data processing and electronic technologies for in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure and mode-to-mode systems to increase transport safety and sustainability, reduce congestion, and improve the performance and competitiveness of Australia’s networks.

ITS technologies include:

  • In-vehicle systems – electronic stability control, lane detection, adaptive cruise control, intelligent speed assist etc.
  • Vehicle-to-vehicle – intersection arrival, collision avoidance systems and emergency notification systems.
  • Vehicle-to-Infrastructure systems – traveller information services (real time navigation, car parking and fuel availability), traffic signal and variable speed control, tolling and freight management systems.

Vision

Deliver safer, more efficient and environmentally sustainable mobility through the use of Intelligent Transport systems (ITS) technology.
