Intelligent Transportation Systems: New Principles and Architectures [NOOK Book]

Overview

For many transportation systems, the cost of expanding the infrastructure is too high. Therefore, engineers must shift their focus to improving the quality of transportation within the existing infrastructure. Focusing on highway and railway systems, Intelligent Transportation Systems: New Principles and Architectures provides a radically different approach to transportation systems design - one that closely resembles reality and promises to yield an architecture that delivers the highest efficiency.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A book/CD-ROM focusing on fundamental principles in future transportation systems that give rise to new system architectures. Argues strongly for the need to design innovative approaches to transportation problems using these principles, and stresses the need for computer modeling and simulation of a representative system to help design and validate such large-scale systems and the design of new performance metrics to estimate performance of these systems. Focuses in detail on highway and railway systems, looking at basic principles pertaining to travel-related decision making such as coordination, control, and routing. The CD-ROM contains computer models for systems described. Editors' credentials are not stated. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Product Details

Table of Contents

To serve the needs of the future, transportation systems must undergo a radical transformation, from the centralized paradigm to the asynchronous, distributed paradigm that integrates fast computers and high-performance networks through novel computer algorithms. Intelligent Transportation Systems takes the first step towards meeting that challenge. Focusing on highway and railway systems, the authors stress the need for computer modeling and simulation to help design and validate complex, large-scale systems and the design of new performance metrics to estimate the performance of these systems. They present the basic principles related to travel-related decision making, including coordination, control, and routing.
