Intelligent Transport Systems: A practical guide for their implementation in Latin America and the Caribbean (ES)

The online instructor-led courses are offered in a personalized mode with no more than 30 students in each class. Start and finish dates are clearly marked. Besides the online tools used for interaction in the virtual environment, courses provide students with continuous support from a technical assistant, the tutor and a program coordinator, who are experts in the course topics, and are able to offer effective feedback in all course activities and promote relevant discussion.

ABOUT THIS COURSE: 

In the Latin American and Caribbean region there is a growing interest for ITS and their implementation. While the market share of technological solutions to manage transport infrastructure and facilitate the sharing of information with users has increased exponentially, there is often a lack of technical knowledge and objective information that allows authorities to successfully implement ITS solutions.

Beyond facilitating the management of transport systems, ITS enable the creation of useful data which informs operators on how the infrastructure is being used and can be used, as well as for planning the growth of the transport sector.

This course provides the student with general knowledge of Intelligent Transport Systems and their potential. Furthermore, it delves into economic, social, institutional, and political spheres in order to ensure that the students have the full capacity to properly implement these systems in their city or region.

By the completion of this course, the student will be able to identify the benefits from the use of ITS applications to solve problems in the mobility and transport sector, diagnose the challenges in its implementation, and describe the commonalities among a variety of its applications.
