Large cities in Vietnam, particularly Ho Chi Minh City, have been facing serious urban transport problems, notably including traffic accidents, congestions, and pollutions. In enhancing urban transport and traffic management to deal with the problems, HCMC has been deploying a number of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) applications, such as electric toll collection (ETC), variable message signs (VMS), GPS-based bus tracking system, and user information provision at bus stop. Most recently, the city plans to develop a traffic control centre to further deploy and coordinate various ITS systems for a better traffic management. More ITS applications and systems will be developed with various technologies. There will be likely issues and difficulties in integrating and coordinating the different systems, thereby risking the effectiveness of investments. Such a challenge strongly calls for in-depth studies on the demand for ITS applications (at the moment and in future) and architectural framework for efficiently integrating the systems. A well-to-do architecture would be very helpful in guiding and phasing investments in ITS applications and the planned traffic control centre.
