    As the urban population is increasing, more and more cars are circulating in the city to search for parking spaces which contributes to the global problem of traffic congestion. To alleviate the parking problems, smart parking systems must be implemented. In this paper, the background on parking problems is introduced and relevant algorithms, systems, and techniques behind the smart parking are re... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1991 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    With the increasing number of vehicles equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), it becomes important to assess its impact on traffic flow efficiency, in particular with respect to capacity and queue discharge rate. Simulation studies and surveys suggest that ACC has both positive and negative effects on traffic flow, but empirical evidence on this topic is scarce. A naturalistic driving study ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (13098 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The main goal of Assistive Technology (AT) is to ensure the functional independence of disabled individuals. This paper proposes the definition of a new concept of AT within the context of the ITS, Assistive Intelligent Transportation System (AITS), analyzing its intrinsic requirements and providing a set of examples. We demonstrate that AITS must localize users with disabilities and identify thei... View full abstract»

    For formation control of multiple vehicle, the typical method is feedback linearization, wherein followers track the leader within a constant distance. Uncertainties and noises arising from varying external environments may easily lead to tracking errors, however. In this paper, the leader-follower error model is built and an adaptive controller is designed to address the uncertain relative distan... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (8504 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Both the industrial and the scientific communities are working on problems related to vehicular traffic congestion, intelligent transportation systems, and mobility patterns using information collected from a variety of sources. Usually, a vehicular traffic simulator, with an appropriate scenario for the problem at hand, is used to reproduce realistic mobility patterns. Many mobility simulators ar... View full abstract»

  • Automatic Incident Detection in Intelligent Transportation Systems Using Aggregation of Traffic Parameters Collected Through V2I Communications

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):64 - 75
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2667 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Recent research in Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) focuses on Automatic Incident Detection (AID) techniques. Using advances in wireless networking and sensor technologies, modern vehicles have the ability to communicate with each other as well as with roadside infrastructure units (RSUs) in order to increase road safety. These new innovations in transportation technology provide traffic ma... View full abstract»

  • Speed Tracking Based Energy-Efficient Freight Train Control Through Multi-Algorithms Combination

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):76 - 90
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5062 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Based on the characteristics of freight train control, which are nonlinear, time-delay, with multi-constraint and multiobjective, this paper focuses on speed tracking problem. Firstly, in a gradual process, a multi-modal fuzzy PID (MM-FPID) control algorithm is presented on the basis of a brief analysis of PI and PID control, which is generally used to train control in active services. Secondly, i... View full abstract»

    Black ice, a thin sheet of glazed ice on a road surface, is hard to spot by drivers, because it usually has the same color as the road. It is very hazardous and causes many car accidents each year. Unfortunately, the current static road warning signs (such as "Ice May Form on Bridge") may not draw enough attention from drivers. In order to provide in-time warning signals during black ice emergenci... View full abstract»

    System that can identify safe and aggressive driving behavior is useful in nowadays transportation service sector: both in private and public. In this paper, we propose a systematic approach (step-by-step) for driving style classification and investigate features that best describe differences between aggressive and safe driving styles when driving information is collected from 3-axis acceleromete...

    In this article, previous literature on the intelligent tire has been reviewed, especially focusing on the estimation of tire characteristics such as tire forces and contact patch characteristics of a loaded rolling tire. The contact patch features and the global deformation of tire are identified as the key factors for the tire force estimation. In this review article, the measurement values to c...
