Intelligent Transportation Systems

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) innovations aim to improve safety, reduce fuel consumption through energy storage systems and improve road space utilization and hence provide the added convenience of shorter journey times. Ricardo has an active ITS team which has developed relationships with a number of business partners to ensure we are able to fulfil the complete ITS needs of our clients, including off-vehicle applications, telematics, service and equipment provision and logistics management.
