Telematics and business travel.

ABSTRACT
This paper attempts an analysis of the relationships between telematics and the second largest component of transportation demand, i.e. business travel. It is argued here that telematics and transportation can be seen as an integrated system, giving place to the concept of a teletrans network. It will be shown how many models of technological substitution, often used on a purely empirical basis, can find a fundamental in the mode choice theory well known in transportation systems analysis. After a brief survey of the possible complementarity effects, an empirical analysis is presented aimed at quantifying the substitution relations. The results clearly indicate that sofisticated telematics tools and services constitute now the most competitive substitute to business travel, while more traditional services, at the latest stages of their diffusion, present a reduced substitution potential.
