Modern traffic problems can no longer be solved solely by the physical construction of new roads or reconstructions of existing roads. In this respect, significant scientific and research efforts have been made over the past twenty years, to address the problem of transport using new information and communication technology resources and novel knowledge on how to run such complex systems and processes. This new area of classical traffic engineering, called Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), demonstrates a new approach and application of advanced management and technical-technological solutions to achieve greater safety, efficiency and reliability of transport, while reducing environmental and social impacts (reduction pollutant emissions, noise and the like). Modern “upgrade” of ITS (especially in an urban environment) is Intelligent Mobility, which is focused on the quality of the mobility itself and viewed from the perspective of the end-user. Intelligent Mobility is one of main piers of Smart City concept. The basic features of these new concepts are presented in the paper.
