Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), Sri Lankan Transport.



Managing the increasing traffic is a big problem in Sri Lanka. The following transport system such as roads, railways, waterways and two international airports are available in Sri Lanka but the country mainly based on the road network. These transportations face many issues like accidents rate, traffic congestion, traffic & carbon emissions air pollution, etc. The idea of Development Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) provides the solution to these problems with the help of new technologies. The paper highlights different systems and also gives the future scope in the field of ITS to make it more user-friendly and accessible.
