In the last two decades, the Information technologies have been developing at a very rapid pace as its products have become very popular and widespread due to their small size and low price. Apart from mobile phones, laptops and computers and network equipment, many and various digital components have entered almost all areas and aspects of human life and activities. This global digital transformation has been driven by new models, paradigms and approaches such as the Internet of Things, Big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud technologies, new software, etc. All of these have been implemented and applied in many businesses and sectors, including the transport one. This paper investigates and reviews some of the most important contemporary information technologies applied or in the process of being applied in the transport sector. The innovative capabilities and opportunities of sensors, sensor networks, wireless networks, Internet of Things and artificial intelligence are presented, as well as a number of problems and threats, which come with those new Information technologies. It gets more and more clear that transport sector today is very closely linked to the Information technologies and it is important for professionals from both fields to work together and share their knowledge, experience and expertise.
