    In many cases, those who develop intelligent transport systems (ITS) have in mind the "mean user", ignoring "special users" or "elderly" ones. The research project TELSCAN financed by the European Commission aimed to ensure that projects of the transport sector of the Telematics Applications Programme will consider the needs of the elderly and disabled (E&D). TELSCAN has applied a type of "act... View full abstract»

    An algorithm for planar (i.e. no altitude change) conflict resolution in air traffic control (ATC) is presented. By using the point-line duality in 2D of the parallel coordinates methodology, and a field of particles incorporating the motion constraints associated with the aircraft, a "map" in time-and-space of the conflict as well as the conflict-free regions is obtained. Then the algorithm const... View full abstract»

    In the steady-state assignment model where each link has a non-decreasing cost flow curve we have monotonicity not just at the link level but also at the route level. In our dynamical system we assume that the users swap to cheaper routes. Monotonicity of the route cost function is enough to guarantee that the given function V is in fact a Lyapunov function and hence that the system converges to e... View full abstract»

    Urban traffic control systems mainly apply two approaches: an adaptive control which uses traffic and efficiency models to perform a numerical optimization of a pre-defined performance index; and a rule-based control in which an expert designs a specific knowledge base to detect traffic situations together with explicit control strategies to deal with them. Both methods have their particular benef... View full abstract»
