Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are complex systems that apply communications and information systems technology in a transportation infrastructure to improve the efficiency, safety, and security of the transportation system. The systems engineering process model that is commonly emerging in developing ITS projects is the “V” model and has hence become the standard model per the DOT and FHWA. This chapter discusses the fundamental application of systems engineering process in planning and developing of ITS.
