Advanced traveler information systems (ATIS) for drivers are a very important element of modern traffic management. In recent years ITS infrastructure is being developed also in Poland. It allows for delivering to drivers information related to the conditions in the road network through, inter alia, dedicated Variable Message Signs (VMS). Such information enables drivers to take decisions, contributing to improving the efficiency and safety of the transport system. They also allow to manage the traffic speed dynamically, taking into account weather conditions hazards, temporary disruptions or incidents. Paper provides an overview of different solutions for Advanced Traveler Information Systems in Poland. The place of ATIS in architecture of Tri-City TRISTAR system is described as well as the use of data, functions and algorithms that allow them to be implemented. Furthermore ATIS development plans and plans for research to be carried out to improve the functioning of the system are presented.
