The application of technologies in surface transportation to save lives, time, and money, and improve the quality of life. Some examples of ITS are ramp metering, variable-message signs, closed-circuit television monitoring system, and traffic signal systems.
Intelligent Transportation System. A system, partly funded by the U.S. government, to develop smart streets and smart cars. Such a system can warn travelers of congestion and suggest alternative routes.
Integrated Technology Services - A line of business with IBM Global Services that specializes in providing world class IT infrastructure services, including consulting, design, deployment and ongoing management support services. Often referred to as Locally Delivered Services (LDS).
Interruptible Transportation Service. Low priority service offered to customers under schedules or contracts which anticipate and permit interruption on short notice, generally in peak-load seasons, by reason of the claim of firm service customers and higher priority users.
A system that uses modern electronic, communication and control technologies to provide travelers with better information on traffic condition, provide vehicles with safety equipment and improve the transportation infrastructure.
Intelligent Transportation Systems. A generic term for advanced technology applications that provide real-time monitoring and information to enable the more efficient and safer use of transportation systems, such as highways.
Intelligent Transportation Systems. ITS encompasses a broad range of modern computer and communications technologies. When integrated into the transportation system infrastructure or in vehicles, these technologies help monitor and manage traffic flow, reduce congestion, provide improved mobility, safety, air quality, and productivity. TRIMARC is an example of ITS. Subsets of Intelligent transportations systems include ATIS, ATMS, and Incident Management or Response Systems.
Intelligent Transportation System -- a system of safety and congestion management devices designed to improve traffic flow such as vehicle navigation systems, computerized signalization systems, surveillance cameras used to locate and clear accidents, etc., as well as electronic signs that notify drivers of traffic conditions
Intelligent Transportation System â€“ SAFE TEA-LU establishes an ITS Program to enhance the capacity, efficiency, and safety of the transportation system and to serve as an alternative to additional physical capacity. Automated highways and vehicles are one component of this approach. ITS is defined as the development of electronics, communications or information processing used singly or in combination to improve the efficiency and safety of surface transportation systems.
Intelligent Transportation System. Uses computer and communications technology to provide information to travelers about road and transit conditions and to monitor, guide, or control the operation of vehicles. Components include variable message signs and camera detection systems at cross streets.
Intelligent Transportation Systems. Use of computer and communications technology to facilitate the flow of information between travelers and system operators. Includes concepts such as "freeway management systems," "automated fare collection," and "transit information kiosks." IVHS technologies are a subset of ITS technologies.
Intermarket Trading System. A computer system that interconnects competing exchange markets for the purpose of choosing the best market. ITS is operated by Securities Industry Automation Corporation (SAC). (See Computer Assisted Execution System )
Intermarket Trading System. An electronic communications network now linking the trading floor of seven registered exchanges and the NASD to foster competition among them in stocks listed on either the NYSE or AMEX and one or more regional exchanges. Through ITS, any broker or market maker on the floor of any participating market can reach out to other participants for an execution whenever the nationwide quote shows a better price is available.
Intelligent Transportation Systems. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are a collection of wide-ranging technologies that are brought together to make traffic management more "intelligent". Many see ITS as the future backbone of our nation's transportation infrastructure. Components of ITS include real-time traffic information, instant control of traffic signals, variable message signs, information processing, transit signal priority and fire pre-emption. Seattle's existing signal systems provides a jump start into ITS. However, integration of other ITS technologies into Seattle's transportation system is still in its infancy. However, almost every capital improvement project that involves signals is factoring in the future role of ITS. Whether this involves upgrading systems to future standards or beginning to lay fiber-optic cable that will act as the communication viaduct between the Traffic Management Center and signals throughout the city.
Intelligent Transportation Systems. The application, in an integrated manner, of advanced information processing (computers), communications, sensor and control technologies and management strategies, to improve the functioning of the transportation system.
Intelligent Transportation Systems. A general term for many technology systems used in highway, rail and other transit to improve mobility, reduce accidents, and improve transportation overall, i.e. electronic toll collection systems, synchronized traffic signals.
Intermarket Trading System. An electronic network of U.S. exchanges and NASD broker/dealers. The ITS system displays quotes of stocks traded on multiple exchanges. This allows specialists and traders to get the best possible price of a stock for their customers.
International Trade Systems. Execution systems designed to automate the import/export business process. The basic functional components are trade documentation generation and transmission, and regulatory compliance validation.
Intermarket Trading System. An electronic communications network that links the posts of specialists who are market makers for the same securities at the floors of seven registered exchanges to foster competition among them. Quotes are displayed and are firm (good) for at least one round lot (100 shares). Through ITS, a broker at one exchange may direct an order to another exchange where the quote is better. See: Firm Quote; Market Maker; Round Lot; Specialist
Intermarket Trading System. A computer system that interconnects competing US exchange markets for the purpose of choosing the best market. ITS is operated by the Securities Industry Automation Corporation (SIAC).
