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.

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.
