Research background and current research topics

Intelligent transport system (ITS) as a meta-system has been intensively discussed over the world in this 21st century. Many countries nowadays have implemented such system to support themselves in improving their quality of life. A number of evidences have shown how ITS bringing significant improvement in transportation system performance, including reduced congestion (5-15%), increased safety (5-15% less fatalities and 5-10% less injuries), and traveller convenience. However, looking into customer perspective might be different picture. There are a number of research areas to re-thinking and defining about customers’ value, as the main sources of the demand in ITS service chain. The value network of ITS should be identified as well as sustainable and financially viable service value chain for ITS. Thus, we will find the suitable business models for ITS deployment. Our research objectives are to identify the value networks of ITS, and then build suitable business models for the whole network as well as for individual actor roles in it, including revenue and risk sharing models, institutional aspects, public-private- partnerships structures and environmental aspects. The steps and methods will be done here are literature review and utilisation of international and national statistics on the supply side of the ITS market; systems analysis tools are employed for study cases step; the traditional cash flow analysis for risk-revenue sharing models; and finally the cases are used as empirical material and an induction process is entered to find generic aspects of working business models, value networks and the roles, tasks and responsibilities of different actors in the network.
