Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have been developed for more than 2 decades in China. Furthermore, a new generation Intelligent Transportation Systems should be launched to meet the requirement of improving road network
capacity, improving traffic safety, ameliorating the road congestion, and reducing vehicle emission. This paper reviews the development of Intelligent Transport Systems in China including its development histories, investment mode and applications. Secondly, this paper introduces the current main research areas about ITS in China. Finally, the prospect of ITS is described, and
the issues and challenges about ITS in China and its proposed solution schemes are also discussed. It was found that ITS has made significant progresses in the areas of research and applications. ITS in China has a promising future despite the rapid urbanization and motorization.
