About the Course

Intelligent Transport Systems: Technologies, Systems and Implementation

  • Monday 24 - Friday 28 April 2017

This course provides an understanding of ITS technology building blocks including communications, databases, location-based services, sensors, and human-machine interaction.

The course:

  • gives an introduction to selected ITS systems including (for example) monitoring, sensing, and cooperative systems/UTMC
  • exposes you to the latest research into ITS technologies and systems
  • provides you with the opportunity to evaluate ITS systems using the DriveLab
  • equips you with the ability to design and implement ITS in future
  • provides a link to the policy and legislative context within which ITS is implemented

Who is the course aimed at?

The course is designed to be of value to non-experts and experts alike as it combines introductory material with more detailed instruction that is beneficial to, for example, industry specialists who wish to update their knowledge.
