    One of the main characteristics of modern society is the never-ending increase in mobility. This leads to a series of problems such as congestion and increased pollution. To resolve these problems, it is imperative to have a good road network management and planning. To efficiently identify the characteristics of traffic in the road network, it would be necessary to perform a permanent monitorisat... View full abstract»

    London has a long history of successful schemes for bus priority at traffic signals. Recently, transport for London (TfL) has procured a modern automatic vehicle location (AVL) system for bus fleet management, passenger information and bus priority. The new system is known as iBUS and is based on Global Positioning System (GPS) and supporting technologies for bus location. The system eliminates th... View full abstract»

    A new approach for standing and walking pedestrian detection using pattern matching and exploiting both 2D image information and 3D dense stereo information is proposed. Because 3D information accuracy does not allow the direct classification of the 3D shape, a combined 3D-2D method is proposed. The 3D data are used in an innovative way for pedestrian hypotheses generation, scale and depth estimat... View full abstract»

    The development of collision avoidance systems which are based on active intervention into the steering process is a promising way of reducing accident fatalities resulting from collisions with other road users. An important prerequisite of such systems is the calculation of feasible manoeuvres. In this paper, a sampling-based path-planning algorithm from robotics is proposed for planning trajecto...

  • Route computation in large road networks: a hierarchical approach

    The optimal route between a given origin and destination needs to be computed in a fast and efficient manner in dynamic route guidance systems. Conventional routing algorithms have been found to be inadequate when applied directly to large road networks. Algorithms based on the concept of hierarchical abstraction make use of the knowledge about the road network to reduce search and provide near-op... View full abstract»

  • Benchmarking travel time estimates

    Travel time estimates are widely regarded as the most practical information about traffic conditions available to individual drivers. Although there are numerous data collection and estimation methods in use today, few attempts have been made to evaluate them in a systematic manner. Even more fundamentally, there are no broadly accepted metrics to measure the quality of travel time estimates. The ... View full abstract»
