    This paper provides a novel approach for optimal route planning by making efficient use of the underlying geometrical structure. It combines classical artificial intelligence exploration with computational geometry. Given a set of global positioning system (GPS) trajectories, the input is refined by geometric filtering and rounding algorithms. For constructing the graph and the according point-loc...

    A general structure of stimulus-response formula is presented to specify the interacted network dynamics under the assumption of a daily learning and adaptive travel behavior. By taking the time derivative of system variable as a response term, the evolution is formulated as a dynamic system. Issues of existence, uniqueness, and stability for the proposed differential equations are briefly discuss... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes an improved nonparametric regression (INPR) algorithm for forecasting traffic flows and its application in automatic detection of traffic incidents. The INPRA is constructed based on the searching method of nearest neighbors for a traffic-state vector and its main advantage lies in forecasting through possible trends of traffic flows, instead of just current traffic states, as ...

    Video-based surveillance systems have a wide range of applications for traffic monitoring, as they provide more information as compared to other sensors. In this paper, we present a rule-based framework for behavior and activity detection in traffic videos obtained from stationary video cameras. Moving targets are segmented from the images and tracked in real time. These are classified into differ... View full abstract»

    The focus of this paper is on real-time obstacle detection using linear stereo vision. This paper presents a multilevel neural method for matching edges extracted from stereo linear images. The method described performs edge stereo matching at different levels with a neural-network-based procedure. At each level, the process starts by selecting, in the left and right linear images, the most signif... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a method for pedestrian detection and tracking using a single night-vision video camera installed on the vehicle. To deal with the nonrigid nature of human appearance on the road, a two-step detection/tracking method is proposed. The detection phase is performed by a support vector machine (SVM) with size-normalized pedestrian candidates and the tracking phase is a combination ... View full abstract»

    An automatic extraction method of container identity codes based on template matching is proposed. With different kinds of noises on the image, the container code can hardly be extracted. Initially, the container image is filtered with both adaptive linear and nonlinear filters in order to reduce noise so that the candidate text lines can be properly located. Then, a series of standard templates h... View full abstract»

    Almost every automobile company is producing vehicles with adaptive cruise control (ACC) system onboard that enables a vehicle to do automatic vehicle following in the longitudinal direction. The ACC system is designed for driver's comfort and safety and to operate with manually driven vehicles. These characteristics of ACC were found to have beneficial effects on the environment and traffic flow ... View full abstract»

    Intervehicle communication (IVC) is an emerging topic in research and application that is getting increasing attention from all major car manufacturers. In this paper, a novel method for scalable information dissemination in highly mobile ad hoc networks is proposed: segment-oriented data abstraction and dissemination (SODAD). With SODAD, information can be distributed in an information range mult... View full abstract»

  • Optimal coordination of variable speed limits to suppress shock waves

    When freeway traffic is dense, shock waves may appear. These shock waves result in longer travel times and in sudden large variations in the speeds of the vehicles, which could lead to unsafe situations. Dynamic speed limits can be used to eliminate or at least to reduce the effects of shock waves. However, coordination of the variable speed limits is necessary in order to prevent the occurrence o...

    Dynamics of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are described by a nonlinear nonholonomic model with two inputs: the rear axle torque and the steering angle torque. This model uses integrated longitudinal and lateral behavior. The first part of this paper is concerned with motion generation, taking into account kinodynamics and motor's constraints. Usual kinematics constraints are not always sufficie... View full abstract»
