    This paper presents a method designed to track and to recover the three-dimensional (3-D) shape of a road by computer vision. The method is based first upon an accurate detection algorithm which provides a reliable estimation of the roadside in the image. This algorithm works by recursive updating of a statistical model of the lane obtained by an off-line training phase. Once the sides have been l... View full abstract»

    Recurrent and nonrecurrent congestion on freeways may be alleviated if today's "spontaneous" infrastructure utilization is replaced by an orderly, controllable operation via comprehensive application of ramp metering and freeway-to-freeway control, combined with powerful optimal control techniques. This paper first explains why ramp metering can lead to a dramatic amelioration of traffic condition... View full abstract»

    A model for the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) powertrain simulation has been constructed with a specific power control strategy for an electric-assisted HEV in parallel configuration. The HEV was built by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Experimental procedures and data analysis for characterizing power output from the battery and the auxiliary power unit (APU) are presented. The model is i... View full abstract»

    A decentralized adaptive control system (ACS) for a four motor-generator four-wheel drive hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is designed and its ability to deal with unknown tire dynamics, changing road surfaces, and vehicle loading is evaluated. A system composed of four separate adaptive controllers is designed to control the vehicle's speed, steering, side slip, and energy management system. A nonli... View full abstract»

    The route computation module is one of the most important functional blocks in a dynamic route guidance system. Although various algorithms exist for finding the shortest path, their performance tends to deteriorate as the network size increases. We present an efficient hierarchical routing algorithm that finds a near-optimal route and evaluate it on a large city road network. Solutions provided b... View full abstract»

    The wide variety of remote sensors used in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications (loops, probe vehicles, radar, cameras, etc.) has created a need for general methods by which data can be shared among agencies and users who own disparate computer systems. In this paper, we present a methodology that demonstrates that it is possible to create, encode, and decode a self-describing dat... View full abstract»

    Preceding vehicle recognition is an important enabling technology for developing a driver assistance system and an autonomous vehicle system. However, this is difficult for computer vision to achieve because of the variety of shapes and colors in which vehicles are made. In this paper, we propose a novel vision-based preceding vehicle recognition method, which has the capability of recognizing a w... View full abstract»

    This paper employs previously developed modeling, validation, and stimulation tools to address, for the first time, the realistic macroscopic simulation of a real large-scale motorway network. More specifically, the macroscopic simulator METANET, involving a second-order traffic flow model as well as network-relevant extensions, is utilized. A rigorous quantitative validation procedure is applied ... View full abstract»

    For pt.I see ibid., vol.3, no.4, p.235-43 (2002). Hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) simulation is conducted based on the model developed for a parallel HEV built in the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT-HEV). The HEV simulation is a parametric analysis of the power control schemes and vehicle performance. Major parameters are evaluated for the vehicle driven under the standard urban and highway d...

Aims & Scope

The theoretical, experimental and operational aspects of electrical and electronics engineering and information technologies as applied to Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Intelligent Transportation Systems are defined as those systems utilizing synergistic technologies and systems engineering concepts to develop and improve transportation systems of all kinds. The scope of this interdisciplinary activity includes the promotion, consolidation and coordination of ITS technical activities among IEEE entities, and providing a focus for cooperative activities, both internally and externally.
