How Intelligent Transport System can change future of Transportation

With more widespread use of information technologies and the maturation of autonomous vehicles, ownership and possession will no longer be necessary prerequisites for on-demand mobility.

Experts predict that the emergence of “cloud commuting” will have a number of implications:

A smaller, more modern fleet that is used more efficiently and turns over faster
Greater coverage in urban areas with higher demand
Fewer trips for people who give up on vehicle ownership and opt to pay by trip
Greater viability for the electrification of the vehicle fleet
Demand for new street designs that emphasize pick-up and drop-off locations rather than on-street parking

The 8 Fastest-Growing Careers of 2016

Oh, mapmaker, mapmaker, make me a map—the need for people who gather and interpret geographic information to make maps will bloom by 30 percent by 2024. The much-faster-than-average growth is driven by the need for maps in everything from managing government lands to the ever-growing number of mobile and web-based mapping tools, says BLS’s Emily Richards. Photogrammetry (from photo meaning “light,” gram meaning “drawing,” and metry meaning “measurement”) is the science of taking measurements from photos—think aerial photos taken from a plane or satellite—and then creating maps or 3D models. Cartographers and photogrammetrists make good money: a median annual salary of $60,930 (as of May 2014). And they’re in high demand in some highly desirable areas: Denver, Colorado; Portland, Oregon; Washington, D.C.; and Anaheim, California.
