This course aims to enlighten the importance of using information and communications technologies in transport through Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The course will introduce the basic concepts and principles of systems integration and technology implementation applied to intelligent transportation systems. Moreover, the course will cover the key technologies in sensing, communication, and data management and techniques for system evaluation, including automatic vehicle location and identification, dynamic control systems, travel information systems, and incident detection systems. In addition, the course gives an overview of ITS products and services as well as economic, social, and environmental issues in ITS implementation.
This class will include but is not limited to the following topics:
- Introduction to ITS: definition, roles, and involvement.
- Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS)
