The principal of Intelligent Transport Services, David Johnston, began working on traffic management systems for Main Roads in Queensland in 1982 while studying for his Engineering degree.
On graduating in 1985, he began full-time work with Main Roads on the development of the Traffic Responsive Area Control system TRAC (the predecessor of STREAMS) with principal responsibility for writing the traffic controller communications software and overall system performance. In late 1988, he established Computer Systems Engineering Pty Ltd to continue providing services to Main Roads and also broaden the client and technology base.
In 1995, David sold his interest in CSE so he could establish Intelligent Transport Services Pty Ltd with a specific aim of providing specialist services in the emerging Intelligent Transport Systems industry. ITS Pty Ltd today offers a wide range of services to support the procurement and operation of traffic management systems. Our expertise covers the electrical, IT, civil and project management aspects of intelligent transport systems.
