Intelligent Transportation Systems Council
The problems that face efficient transportation, such as the risk of traffic accidents, are made up of a number of factors: human, mechanical and environmental. Overcoming these problems requires the marshalling of knowledge from numerous academic fields and research into what constitutes the ideal road transportation system and the relationship between the human, mechanical and environmental factors of that system.
ITIP - Intelligent Transportation Infrastructure ProgramThe Intelligent Transportation Infrastructure Program is a US federal initiative for ITS data collection, integration and distribution. It was designed to encourage heavily congested metropolitan areas to utilise ITS by offering federal money for system implementation.
Portions of the program were initiated in 1998 under TEA-21, but passage of SAFETEA-LU has expanded ITIP to include the Transportation Technology Innovation and Demonstration Program (TTID). This program will further advance the depoloyment of ITS technology by aiding local transportation analysis and planning activities while simultaneously supporting national monitoring of traffic congestion levels.
AITS India is an umbrella organisation which represents a broad spectrum of members including industry, government, consumer organisations, and academia in fostering the development and deployment of ITS systems in India. Such systems often include components used in electronic commerce, and related applications. AITS India also has strong links internationally with similar organizations including ITS America, ERTICO, VERTIS and ITS Asia-Pacific. AITS India can therefore represent its membership internationally and provide valuable insight into the latest global developments without each member having to attend all events with the subsequent human resource and financial burden.

NHTSA is responsible for reducing deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes. This is accomplished by setting and enforcing safety performance standards for motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment, and through grants to state and local governments, to enable them to conduct effective local highway safety programs. NHTSA investigates safety defects in motor vehicles, sets and enforces fuel economy standards, helps states and local communities reduce the threat of drunk drivers, promotes the use of safety belts, child safety seats and air bags, investigates odometer fraud, establishes and enforces vehicle anti-theft regulations and provides consumer information on motor vehicle safety topics. NHTSA also conducts research on driver behavior and traffic safety, to develop the most efficient and effective means of bringing about safety improvements.
