Intelligent Transportation Systems

In order to improve the mobility of people and goods, which in turn promotes a strong economy, enhances and protects environmental quality and improves overall quality of life, ACOG encourages the utilization and exploration of ITS capabilities for use within individual entities and promotes the connectivity of roadway technologies between member local governments and across the Central Oklahoma region.

The growth of a region should go hand-in-hand with the growth of transportation technologies. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have the ability to influence driver behavior, before or during a trip, in pursuance of ideal or improved traffic flow, a vital part of the Oklahoma City Area Regional Transportation Study (OCARTS) area congestion management process.

ITS accommodates optimal performance of the available roadway network by providing precise and appropriate trip-specific information at the disposal of the traveler. Communications technologies, route planning and navigation systems, traffic detection and forecasting, traffic signal control, corridor control systems and variable message signs allow drivers to make individual, decision-based choices on their trip parameters while enhancing safety on the roadway and improving cost-effectiveness of travel.

About ITS

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are the application of communications technologies, information processing, and advanced control strategies designed to assist and enhance transportation operations, mobility and reduce congestion on roadways. ITS is a proven and critical tool used to effectively combat congestion and incident related traffic problems.

In order to improve the mobility of people and goods, which in turn promotes a strong economy, enhances and protects environmental quality and improves overall quality of life, ACOG encourages the utilization and exploration of ITS capabilities for use within individual entities and promotes the connectivity of roadway technologies between member local governments and across the Central Oklahoma region.
