    Road safety in France has a history that explains the latest developments that can be observed today. This example is rich in lessons that can be used by other countries, including the Maghreb. Road safety is first of all a national concern. This means it is a top-down process. In 1972, a road safety public policy has been decided leading to a significant reduction in the number of victims. Policy... View full abstract»

    In the following paper, we were interested in a model related to School Bus Routing Problem (SBRP). Our first objective is to develop a transportation plan to minimize the costs of running across network while meeting a set of constraints such as the capacity of bus and the distance establish by each vehicle. The metaheuristics, namely genetic algorithm are able to solve NP-hard problems. To reach... View full abstract»

    Traffic lights are used worldwide for over 100 years. This solution has proved its efficiency especially in urban areas. Nevertheless the complexity of resource sharing problem grows with the increasing number of personal vehicles and the rise of emerging mobility systems. Traffic lights suffer from a lack of flexibility and are not anymore adapted to modern cities. Fortunately the evolution of te... View full abstract»

    In the framework of the European FP7 SECUREMETRO project, the authors have studied the occurrences of terrorist attacks against metro trains with the goal to reduce the number of attacks by making transport systems a less attractive target. In addition to the counter-measures already implemented to increase the resilience to terrorism, the SECUREMETRO project adds another layer of countermeasures ... View full abstract»

    The higher concentration of households and activities leads to increase the urban mobility and their associated negative externalities especially with a more use of private vehicles. In Tunisia, households tend to migrate from rural to urban areas and the motorization has known an important rise. The aim of this article is to examine the sustainability of road transport systems in Tunisian mega ci... View full abstract»

    Various formal testing methods have been developed in the past decades. Most of them are based on graphical notations such as finite state machines, labelled transitions systems, etc., which remain quite intuitive for users to perform black box testing. In addition, testing methods based on temporal logics have been also investigated, such as the testing methods inspired by model checking. However... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a commodity freight generation demand model in such a way that the movement of commodities is explained by aggregate commodities production and attraction by zone. The proposed model is a modification of the first step of traditional four-step approach, which utilizes regression analysis. Regression analyses correlate freight production and freight attraction based on land use ... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with a developed digital control procedure used to regulate a halogen lamp. The digital process allowing the extraction of spectral irradiance characteristics was presented. Power consumption progress was given to determine the spectral intensity of 250W halogen lamp. To obtain these proprieties we use PIC18F family's microcontroller as a manager to operate the lamp in the appropr... View full abstract»

    Streetlights place a heavy demand on electricity usage, providing significant financial and environmental burdens. Consequently, initiatives to reduce energy consumption have been proposed, usually by turning off or dimming the streetlight. In this paper, we propose an adaptive lighting scheme based on traffic sensing, which adaptively adjusts streetlight brightness based on current traffic condit... View full abstract»

    In our application, and in the context of optimizing the flow of an emergency vehicle in time, we will rely on two tools (mathematics and computer science) in order to avoid delays and risks that characterize the movement of these vehicles. We will use VANET networks as a transmission system to retrieve information about the road incident, and after that, we shall use the Kalman algorithm for trac... View full abstract»

    The significant growth generally observed in road transportation has led to serious human and economic losses as a result of road accidents. This observation calls for considerable attention from civil security policies and requires a precise and rigorous identification of public action priority sectors. In this paper, we propose a traffic accident prediction system based on fuzzy logic which allo... View full abstract»

    This work offers the macroscopic modeling of traffic road based on the Bond Graph (BG) paradigm for using these models in the traffic road control. We recall to the first time, the various models of the traffic road. Then we describe the Bond Graph with these principles in order to model three various macroscopic traffic flow models with Bond Graph. The originality of our approach lies in the fact...
