Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) Policy at ITS

The measurement and setting of targets for a more sustainable commuting strategy, with particular focus on zero-emission vehicles, serves as an important step toward mitigating transportation’s environmental impact. Organizations and institutions can significantly decrease carbon emissions, air pollution, and reliance on fossil fuels by regulating the use of zero-emission vehicles or setting clear targets for their adoption. The use of zero-emission vehicles as part of a sustainable commuting strategy not only reduces the carbon footprint, but also indicates a commitment to ethical and sustainable transportation methods. Additionally, this strategy becomes a model for other organizations and individuals keen on implementing cleaner and more sustainable transportation options. It fosters a culture of environmental responsibility, encourages technological innovation, and supports the transition to a greener and more sustainable future. 

In the campus environment, ITS implements a Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) policy. ZEV policies are available and are offered at free of charge. The following are the ZEV policies on the ITS campus:

1. Campus bicycles are provided free of charge to the ITS academic community.

ITS provides campus bicycles in order to reduce air pollution and promote a healthy lifestyle on campus. Borrowers of bicycles must simply present their identity card to the shelter officer as collateral and return the same bicycle to the shelter from where they borrowed it. Bicycles can only be borrowed and used on the track / campus area from 07.00-16.00 WIB Monday-Friday.

4. Provision of zero-emission automobiles I-Cars (autonomous electric vehicles).

I-Car is outfitted with a variety of sensors, including a high-precision Global Positioning System (GPS) and Light RADAR (LiDAR) sensors, which enable the smart car to assist the driver in recognizing dangers, preventing collisions, and lowering the risk of accidents, as well as optimizing the power of the electric motor drive. I-Car is also programmed automatically to stop at direct place. I-Car has a capacity of 12 persons each 5 minutes and can accommodate 144 people in one hour. I-Car can run for 8 hours every day.
