This report provides an overview of the latest developments in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), with a particular focus on applications relevant to micro-simulation, including autonomous/semi-autonomous driving technologies and co-operative systems. Furthermore, there is a review of several examples where micro-simulation has been used to assess the impacts of ITS. Many ITS applications are currently being deployed, or are being sought to be deployed, and some form of verification or testing is required to assess their impact. There are several different approaches for doing this, of which micro-simulation appears to be one of the most powerful methods in some cases. This document is intended to be read in parallel with the accompanying report, which gives a review of the state-of-the-art in micro-simulation. The purpose of these two documents is to provide a baseline understanding of the state-of-the-art in ITS and micro-simulation.
