    The transport of hazardous materials can have a negative impact on human health and the environment quality; therefore it represents a relevant concern for each national economy of Europe. In Italy, the Apulia Region funded a research project to face this problem. In this framework, the authors proposed a flexible intelligent transport system (ITS) designed to work in many complex situations on th... View full abstract»

    In a demand responsive transport system (DRTS), vehicles follow routes and timetables automatically scheduled by a travel dispatch centre to match the trip requests and to associate as many users as possible to the same vehicle, while guaranteeing the quality standards in terms of pickup/delivery time and travel duration. How efficient the system is in combining user requests on vehicles depends o... View full abstract»

    This study completes the study of a longitudinal control strategy based on a non-linear acceleration profile model. The model is thoroughly defined by a set of two design parameters that make the control policy auto-adaptive. The control strategy is safe and Stop'consistent. The string stability property of the control policy is also analysed. Simulation results show that the control policy has a ... View full abstract»

  • Efficient transit planning framework using service composition and hierarchical aggregation schemes

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):175 - 182

    Modern advanced public transportation systems (APTSs) mostly maintain their own regional service information in a closed, non-sharable fashion in order to provide path planning service. When processing large-scope cross-regional paths which would require data from two or more APTSs, the service would be difficult or impossible since there is scarcely protocol for cross-system data exchanging. In a... View full abstract»

  • Route choice behaviour with pre-trip travel time information

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):183 - 189
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential benefits from real-time travel-time information provision by gaining insights into and better understanding of the factors affecting the route-choice behaviour of drivers possessing real-time pre-trip information. Both a field study and an in-laboratory experiment were conducted to obtain revealed preferences (RP) and stated preferences (SP) o... View full abstract»

  • Eigen-based traffic sign recognition

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):190 - 196
    Cited by:  Papers (9)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1065 KB)

    This study's purpose is to introduce eigen-based traffic sign recognition. This technique is based on invoking the principal component analysis (PCA) algorithm to choose the most effective components of traffic sign images to classify an unknown traffic sign. A set of weights are computed from the most effective eigen vectors of the traffic sign. By using the Euclidean distance, unknown traffic si... View full abstract»

  • Integrating location tracking, traffic monitoring and semantics in a layered ITS architecture

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):197 - 206
    Cited by:  Papers (13)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (544 KB)

    The new generation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs) should be able both to monitor in real-time the current user location and traffic conditions, and to access the heterogeneous data sources maintained by different organisations and useful for ITS applications. For this reason, a layered ITS architecture is proposed, which consists of a Wi-Fi communication layer for data exchange betwe... View full abstract»

  • Lateral control assistance in car driving: classification, review and future prospects

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):207 - 220
    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (310 KB)

    This study puts forward a classification of driver lateral control assistance devices based on distinctions among several cooperative activities between the driver and the assistance devices. The proposed classification is based on prior work by Hoc, Young and Blosseville and Young, Stanton and Harris, who put forward related theoretical frameworks on human-machine cooperation with automation. The... View full abstract»
