since the early 80s. There is a broad spectrum of smart services that Singaporean Government wish to provide for the public but their journey is still at an early stage as most of the services have been launched (many of them as trials) recently in the early 2010s, and many service are on their planning stage, to be implemented along with cross-cutting efforts of the Smart Nation initiatives. Singapore has implemented a sophisticated ITS to enhance traffic flow and to keep road traffic running safety. The strength of the ITS in Singapore originates from its holistic approach towards traffic management; ITS work together with other transport initiatives such as free public transportation in pre-morning peak hours, a vehicle quota system, well-functioning public transport system and congestion charge, to enhance overall transport system in the city. Utilizing ITS components, Singapore provides a number of smart transport services for citizens. ONE.MOTORING is the comprehensive portal serving all drivers and vehicle owners in Singapore. On this web portal, citizens can access traffic information collected from surveillance cameras installed on roads and taxi vehicles with GPS. Through Traffic Smart, drivers are able to see snapshots of roadways that is taken at every 5-minute interval. Due to security reasons, real- time moving video or close-up shots are not provided online. It also provides information on current ERP rates (Electrical Road Pricing), sections where road works are in progress, traffic images of major expressways, traffic news, travel time calculator, road maps and street directions, and parking information. This useful portal can also be accessed on mobile devices. One motoring, not only provides traffic information but also offers information and guidance for citizens regarding buying, selling and maintaining their vehicles. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) uses surveillance cameras to look out for road incidents. When an incident is detected, LTA activates the vehicle recovery crew that aims to reach at site in about 15 minutes to tow vehicle to the nearest designated car park outside the expressway. ‘Your Speed Sign’ is a smart, live electronic device which displays the real-time speed of vehicles and alerts drivers if they are violating the speed limit. It encourages drivers to stay under the limit and thus improve safety on the roads.

LTA has launched the Parking Guidance System since 2008 and this provide drivers with real- time information on parking availability. This reduces the amount of circulating traffic searching for available spaces and promotes a more efficient use of existing parking facilities. Information is displayed on electronic sign board or online on One Motoring Portal, or on mobile application such as MyTransport.SG.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
