    In this paper, we propose an intervehicle information dissemination protocol called received message-dependent protocol (RMDP) that propagates the preceding traffic information to the following vehicles and discuss its performance. The proposed protocol autonomously changes the dissemination interval, depending on the number of reception messages and detected reception errors, in order to avoid me... View full abstract»

    Push to talk (PTT) is a walkie-talkie like service. In this service, several predefined group members participate in one PTT session. At any time, only one group member is allowed to speak. Therefore, a mechanism is required to determine the member that is permitted to speak. In Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), a central arbitrator coordinates the permission to speak among the group members. In the Int... View full abstract»

    Vehicular ad hoc networks have several characteristics that distinguish them from other ad hoc networks. Among those is the rapid change in topology due to traffic jams, which also disturbs the homogeneous distribution of vehicles on the road. For this reason, a dynamic transmission range is more effective in maintaining the connectivity while minimizing the adverse effects of a high transmission ... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a novel method for accurately counting the number of vehicles that are involved in multiple-vehicle occlusions, based on the resolvability of each occluded vehicle, as seen in a monocular traffic image sequence. Assuming that the occluded vehicles are segmented from the road background by a previously proposed vehicle segmentation method and that a deformable model is geometric... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a microsimulation program developed to study freeway ramp merging phenomena under congested traffic conditions. The results of extensive macroscopic and microscopic studies are used to establish a model for the behavior of merging drivers. A theoretical framework for modeling the ramp and freeway lag driver acceleration-deceleration behavior guided the model development. This ... View full abstract»

    Most automated expressway incident detection algorithms were successfully developed using loop-based traffic occupancy from their local conditions. However, the performance of these algorithms was not satisfactory on sites that have installed a video-based detector system. Due to different traffic detector technologies and varying driving behaviors from one region to another, it is of interest to ... View full abstract»

    This paper studies the conflict resolution for intersecting flows of mobile agents based on planar space partition. The idea of space partition is first demonstrated for two intersecting flows of mobile agents. Then, for three intersecting flows, where simple decentralized conflict avoidance rules may not handle all traffic scenarios, it is proved that certain periodic partitions of space are able...

    Drivers overloaded with information significantly increase the chance of vehicle collisions. Driver workload, which is a multidimensional variable, is measured by both performance-based and subjective measurements and affected by driver age differences. Few existing computational models are able to cover these major properties of driver workload or simulate subjective mental workload and human per... View full abstract»

    Path prediction is the only way that an active safety system can predict a driver's intention. In this paper, a model-based description of the traffic environment is presented - both vehicles and infrastructure - in order to provide, in real time, sufficient information for an accurate prediction of the ego-vehicle's path. The proposed approach is a hierarchical-structured algorithm that fuses tra... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Transactions on ITS is concerned with the design, analysis, and control of information technology as it is applied to transportation systems. The IEEE ITS Transactions is focused on the numerous technical aspects of ITS technologies spanned by the IEEE. Transportation systems are invariably complex, and their complexity arises from many sources. Transportation systems can involve humans, vehicles, shipments, information technology, and the physical infrastructure, all interacting in complex ways. Many aspects of transportation systems are uncertain, dynamic and nonlinear, and such systems may be highly sensitive to perturbations. Controls can involve multiple agents that (and/or who) are distributed and hierarchical. Humans who invariably play critical roles in a transportation system have a diversity of objectives and a wide range of skills and education. Transportation systems are usually large-scale in nature and are invariably geographically distributed.
