Abstract

The concept of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) is about the development and deployment of advanced Traffic Management Systems, Traveler Information
Systems, Commercial Vehicle Operations, Public and Private Transportation Systems, and Rural Transportation Systems. Several key technologies stand to serve the synthesis of each and every one of these objectives. These
technologies include: Wireless Communications technology (GSM), Computers, Digital Maps, Path Planning, Sensors, Vehicle and Traffic Control Systems. This paper is not intended to discuss each of these technologies, rather, the
paper looks at how these modern technologies can be deployed in developing countries, with emphasis on wireless communications applications which will enable developing countries to take off smoothly and progress into their
emerging economies successfully. In this paper we have looked at the key technical features to be considered for developing and deploying ITS in Developing Countries. The empirical data are taken from a detailed case study of ITS deployment in Ghana. The methodology used for data collection included interviews and surveys - face-to-face discussions and questionnaires. The results show that deployment of Intelligent Vehicle Tracking Technology (IVTT) will address the problems of inefficiencies experienced in the Ghanaian road transport haulage tracking industry. Research for ITS development and eployment in these countries should be cost effective.
