Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) use information and communications technologies (ICT) to deliver transport improvements instead of extending physical infrastructure, thereby saving money and reducing environmental impact. This book provides an overview of ICT-based intelligent road transport systems with an emphasis on evaluation methods and recent evaluation results of ITS development and deployment. Topics covered include: ITS evaluation policy; frameworks and methods for ITS evaluation; ITS impact evaluation; the network perspective; field operational tests (FOTs); assessing transport measures using cost-benefit and multicriteria analysis; technical assessment of the performance of in-vehicle systems; opportunities and challenges in the era of new pervasive technology; evaluation of automated driving functions; user-related evaluation of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and automated driving; evaluation of traffic management; performance assessment of a wet weather pilot system; case studies from China; heavy vehicle overload control benefit and cost. With chapters from an international panel of leading experts, this book is essential reading for researchers and advanced students from academia, industry and government working in intelligent road transport systems.
Stough (public policy, George Mason U.) brings together nine contributions that evaluate the prospects for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) to solve the dilemma caused by increasing demands for mobility combined with reluctance to continue to build traditional transportation infrastructure such as highways. These systems encompass a complex of information technologies. The chapters offer case studies of systems deployed in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and use multi-criteria methodologies to evaluate the cost- effectiveness of the programs. Electronic tolling systems, variable message signs, automatic truck rollover warning systems, and several other technologies are discussed and evaluated. The final chapter applies simulation modeling to estimate the effects the addition of several ITS technologies will have on congestion and mobility in the Northern Virginia region. c. Book News Inc.
Over the time, Intelligent Transport System (ITS) has become important for any country not only for traffic congestion management, but also for modern infrastructure and safety. Since there is a dearth of literature on this subject, this book attempts to fill the gap and provides a holistic work on ITS encompassing theory, examples and case studies on various facets in both road and railway sectors. The basic principles of various technologies used for ITS have been explained in such a manner that students from non-technical background can also comprehend them with ease. It also discusses the emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, cooperative vehicle highway system, automated highway systems, 5G mobile technology, etc. Considering the need of huge funds required for ITS implementation, the text provides various funding options available. Conclusively, it is a unique book that contains all aspects of ITS which a student of engineering is expected to know. The book is intended as a text for postgraduate students of transportation engineering and as a reference book for professionals such as transport planners, town planners, traffic engineers, transit operators and consultants. Key Features, • ITS architecture with a number of case studies based on real-life situation • Concept of smart city, importance of advanced transport system, and applications of ITS technologies in smart cities • ITS in Rail sector—intelligent trains, train control systems and intelligent train maintenance practices • Chapter-end questions for practice and bibliography

Intelligent Transport Systems for Everyone s Mobility
This book presents the latest, most interesting research efforts regarding Intelligent Transport System (ITS) technologies, from theory to practice. The book’s main theme is “Mobility for everyone by ITS”; accordingly, it gathers a range of contributions on human-centered factors in the use or development of ITS technologies, infrastructures, and applications. Each of these contributions proposes a novel method for ITS and discusses the method on the basis of case studies conducted in the Asia-Pacific region. The book are roughly divided into four general categories: 1) Safe and Secure Society, 2) ITS-Based Smart Mobility, 3) Next-Generation Mobility, and 4) Infrastructure Technologies for Practical ITS. In these categories, several key topics are touched on with each other such as driver assistance and behavior analysis, traffic accident and congestion management, vehicle flow management at large events, automated or self-driving vehicles, V2X technologies, next-generation public transportation systems, and intelligent transportation systems made possible by big data analysis. In addition, important current and future ITS-related problems are discussed, taking into account many case studies that have been conducted in this regard.
These proceedings collect selected papers from the 8th International Conference on Green Intelligent Transportation Systems and Safety held in Changchun on July 1-2, 2017. The selected works, which include state-of-the-art studies, are intended to promote the development of green mobility and intelligent transportation technology to achieve interconnectivity, resource sharing, flexibility and higher efficiency. They offer valuable insights for researchers and engineers in the fields of Transportation Technology and Traffic Engineering, Automotive and Mechanical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, and Electrical Engineering.
Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems
Author: Meng Lu
Publisher: Institution of Engineering and Technology
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) have been a domain of substantial development for more than thirty years, enhancing safety, (energy and fuel) efficiency, comfort, and economic growth. Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), also referred to as Connected Vehicles, are a prelude to, and pave the way towards road transport automation. Vehicle connectivity and information exchange will be an important asset for future highly-automated driving. The book provides a comprehensive insight in the state of the art of C-ITS and automated driving, especially addresses the important role of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) infrastructure, and presents the main achievements (both theory and practice), as well as the challenges in the domain in Europe, the US and Asia/Pacific.
