by Ilja Bäumler; Herbert Kotzab
World Review of Intermodal Transportation Research (WRITR), Vol. 9, No. 3, 2020

Abstract: This article explores the intertwined nature of technologies and the progress of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) research programs/initiatives in North America and in the European Countries. The first ideas for the intelligent use of existing infrastructure for road traffic were developed in the USA in the late 1960s, whereas the first ITS-related technologies were researched in the early 1960s (sensor technology). Strengthened by international networking and competitive thinking, first enormous efforts in ITS research were conducted in the late 1980s.
