    This paper presents a new approach to data fusion for automatic recognition, surveillance, and tracking in intelligent transportation systems. Robust data alignment (RDA), i.e., finding relational maps among a sequence of invariant feature data sets, is one of the key requirements for successful data fusion. To achieve RDA for correspondenceless data fusion, we construct a cost criterion based on ... View full abstract»

    A lane-detection system is an important component of many intelligent transportation systems. We present a robust lane-detection-and-tracking algorithm to deal with challenging scenarios such as a lane curvature, worn lane markings, lane changes, and emerging, ending, merging, and splitting lanes. We first present a comparative study to find a good real-time lane-marking classifier. Once detection... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an H-infinity filtering approach to optimize a fuzzy control model used to determine behavior-consistent (BC) information-based control strategies to improve the performance of congested dynamic traffic networks. By adjusting the associated membership function parameters to better respond to nonlinearities and modeling errors, the approach is able to enhance the computational p... View full abstract»

    Providing travel time information to travelers on available route alternatives in traffic networks is widely believed to yield positive effects on individual drive behavior and (route/departure time) choice behavior, as well as on collective traffic operations in terms of, for example, overall time savings and-if nothing else-on the reliability of travel times. As such, there is an increasing need... View full abstract»

    The majority of today's automated vehicle location (AVL) systems use Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, which can provide position information with an accuracy of approximately 15 m. Recently, low-cost Differential GPS (DGPS) receivers, which have a positioning accuracy of approximate 2-3 m, have become available. With this increased accuracy, it is now possible to perform AVL down to spe... View full abstract»

    The ultimate purpose of a pedestrian-detection system (PDS) is to reduce pedestrian-vehicle-related injury. Most such systems tend to adopt expensive sensors, such as infrared devices, in expectation of better performance. In comparison, a low-cost optical-camera-based system has much potential practical value, including a greater detection range, and can easily be trained to detect other objects....

    In open railway access markets, a train service provider (TSP) negotiates with an infrastructure provider (IP) for track access rights. This negotiation has been modeled by a multiagent system in which the IP and the TSP are represented by separate software agents. One of the tasks of the IP agent is to generate feasible (and preferably optimal) track access rights, subject to the constraints subm... View full abstract»

    This paper develops a novel statistical approach for automatic vehicle detection based on local features that are located within three significant subregions of the image. In the detection process, each subregion is projected onto its associated eigenspace and independent basis space to generate a principal components analysis (PCA) weight vector and an independent component analysis (ICA) coeffic...

    Route planning in uncertain and dynamic networks has recently emerged as an active and intense area of research, both due to industry needs and technological advances. This paper investigates methods to predict travel times along the arcs and estimate arrival times at the nodes of a stochastic and dynamic network in real time. It is shown that, under fairly mild conditions, the developed travel an... View full abstract»

    A new traffic-responsive ramp-metering strategy is presented that coordinates local ramp-metering actions, thus enabling the linked control of the inflow from two (or more) consecutive on-ramps to the freeway mainstream. The proposed linked ramp-metering scheme is simple and utterly reactive, i.e., based on readily available real-time measurements without any need for real-time model calculations ...

  • Neural–Fuzzy Gap Control for a Current/Voltage-Controlled 1/4-Vehicle MagLev System

    A magnetically levitated (MagLev) vehicle prototype has independent levitation (attraction) and propulsion dynamics. We focus on the levitation behavior to obtain precise gap control of a 1/4 vehicle. An electromagnetic levitation system is highly nonlinear and naturally unstable, and its equilibrium region is severely restricted. It is therefore a tough task to achieve high-performance vehicle-le... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a threat-assessment algorithm for general road scenes. A road scene consists of a number of objects that are known, and the threat level of the scene is based on their current positions and velocities. The future driver inputs of the surrounding objects are unknown and are modeled as random variables. In order to capture realistic driver behavior, a dynamic driver model is impl...

    We present a method for segmenting and tracking vehicles on highways using a camera that is relatively low to the ground. At such low angles, 3-D perspective effects cause significant changes in appearance over time, as well as severe occlusions by vehicles in neighboring lanes. Traditional approaches to occlusion reasoning assume that the vehicles initially appear well separated in the image; how... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a multilevel framework to detect and handle vehicle occlusion. The proposed framework consists of the intraframe, interframe, and tracking levels. On the intraframe level, occlusion is detected by evaluating the compactness ratio and interior distance ratio of vehicles, and the detected occlusion is handled by removing a ldquocutting regionrdquo of the occluded vehicles. On the... View full abstract»

    The itinerary planning problem in an urban public transport system constitutes a common routing and scheduling decision faced by travelers. The objective of this paper is to present a new formulation and an algorithm for solving the itinerary planning problem, i.e., determination of the itinerary that lexicographically optimizes a set of criteria (i.e., total travel time, number of transfers, and ...

    For the lane-change maneuvers under the architectures of automated highway systems, most researchers focus on the maneuvers for a single vehicle to change lanes. However, not only are the lane-change maneuvers for a single vehicle needed, but a platoon-lane-change (PLC) maneuver is also required in some situations for an entire platoon to change lanes. The goal of this paper is to design PLC maneu... View full abstract»
