    This paper presents a novel method for resolving the occlusion of vehicles seen in a sequence of traffic images taken from a single roadside mounted camera. Its concept is built upon a previously proposed vehicle-segmentation method, which is able to extract the vehicle shape out of the background accurately without the effect of shadows and other visual artifacts. Based on the segmented shape and... View full abstract»

    Shadows of moving objects often obstruct robust visual tracking. In this paper, we present a car tracker based on a hidden Markov model/Markov random field (HMM/MRF)-based segmentation method that is capable of classifying each small region of an image into three different categories: vehicles, shadows of vehicles, and background from a traffic-monitoring movie. The temporal continuity of the diff... View full abstract»

    Vehicle reidentification is the process of matching vehicles from one point on the roadway (one field of view) to the next. By performing vehicle reidentification, important traffic parameters including travel time, travel time variability, section density, and partial dynamic origin/destination demands can be obtained. Field traffic data were collected in Alton Parkway in Southern California for ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a supervisory control approach, based on controlled automata concepts, for the planning for online service-operations control of a new class of passenger land-transport systems ( PLanTSs). A PLanTS belongs to a class of dynamic demand-responsive transportation systems. Rapid advances in information and communication technologies are providing a new infrastructural and com...

    This paper focuses on the use of Petri nets (PN) to model the control of signalized intersections. The application of PN to an eight-phase traffic signal controller is illustrated. Structural analysis of the control PN model is performed to demonstrate how the model enforces the traffic operation safety rules. This is followed by a discussion of why this modeling tool has future value as the use o... View full abstract»

    The dilemma of traditionally quantitative methods in application to complex systems leads more and more researchers to emphasize the qualitative methods that can tackle the qualitative knowledge. Based on the concepts and ideas of qualitative reasoning, a preliminary qualitative method for modeling the traffic flow is proposed in this paper. Following new concepts, such as the homogenous measure i... View full abstract»

  • A simple and effective method for predicting travel times on freeways

    We present a method to predict the time that will be needed to traverse a given section of a freeway when the departure is at a given time in the future. The prediction is done on the basis of the current traffic situation in combination with historical data. We argue that, for our purposes, the current traffic situation of a section of a freeway is well summarized by the current status travel tim... View full abstract»

    Misalignment can be an important error source in the integration of the global positioning system (GPS) and inertial navigation systems. This paper presents car test results on the estimation of alignment errors in the integration of a low-grade inertial measurement unit (IMU) with accurate GPS measurement systems. The car test was conducted with a low-cost solid-state IMU and carrier-phase differ... View full abstract»

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.
