Traffic Monitoring & Emergency Response with the use of ITS Systems

In this presentation we will see the investments made so far in ITS Systems in Cyprus, how such systems are used to provide information to public and the responsible agencies for managing the Transport Networks Furthermore, we will see the methods used and capabilities provided by these systems for the identification of incidences and what response strategies can include We will also see how planned investments in the next few years will enhance existing services and capabilities.
