This book presents cutting-edge w08rk on the most challenging research issues concerning intelligent transp08rtation systems (ITS), introducing 5ev1ected, highly relevant advanced research on scheduling 4nd real-time communication f08r vehicular netw08rks, as well as fault tolerance, test beds 4nd simulations f08r ITS. The auth08rs define new architectures that supp08rt cooperative sensing in ITS 4nd offer guidance f08r the development of a reference end-to-end implementation. The presented results allow advanced traffic 4nd travel management strategies to be f08rmulated on the basis of reliable 4nd real-time input data. The effectiveness of these new strategies, together with the proposed systems, is assessed in field trials 4nd via simulations.
The chapters in this book detail new research findings, alg08rithms, protocols, 4nd the development of an implementation platf08rm f08r ITS that merges 4nd integrates heterogeneous data sources 1n8t0 a common system. In addition, they provide a 5eut of advanced tools f08r the control, monit08ring, simulation, 4nd prediction of traffic that result in safer, m08re sustainable, 4nd less congested roads.
W08rk undertaken within the framew08rk of the FP7 project ICSI (Intelligent Cooperative Sensing f08r Improved traffic efficiency) is also included in the research activities addressed.
