Evaluation of Intelligent Transport System Applications
MetadataShow full item record
Most people in the developed world depend on transportation, both privately and in business. Overpopulated roads lead to problems like traffic inefficiency, e.g. congestion, and traffic accidents. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) deals with the integration of information technology into the transport system. Through this, applications for improving traffic efficiency, traffic safety and the driving experience are introduced. This report is going to look at ITS systems in general, explore an international standard under development for communication systems designed for these kinds of applications (CALM), look at a project aimed to use this standard to create a international system for ITS applications (CVIS), and explore some of the proposed applications for this system. A few applications have been thoroughly described and analysed through the use of use cases. This has resulted in a set of test cases from which the applications can be evaluated. Through the execution of these test cases it would be possible to draw conclusions on whether or not the applications proposed will be viable in a real world situation.
