Global mobility on roads in the 21st century 2000-05-0383

In future, there will be increasing demand for mobility and transportation especially in the newly industrialized countries where about half of the world''s population lives. This will enormously increase the number of vehicles in operation. The fact of such development taking place in the economically poorest countries of the world is alarming because these will not be able to apply strict emission and safety legislation as is practiced in the highly industrialized nations.

Besides further reduction of required energy and increase of efficiency, intelligent traffic management systems will play a major role in tackling the challenges put by our demands for individual mobility.
