Intelligent Transport Systems: Technologies, Systems and Implementation
[ Book online ]
- provides an understanding of ITS technology building blocks including communications, databases, location-based services, sensors and human-machine interface (HMI);
- provides an understanding of selected ITS systems including (for example) payment systems, monitoring and sensing, e-logistics, and cooperative systems/UTMC;
- exposes delegates to the latest research into ITS technologies and systems;
- provides delegates with knowledge of ITS in practice through lectures by industry experts;
- equips delegates with the ability to design and implement ITS in future;
- provides a link to the policy and legislative context within which ITS is implemented.
By the end of the course, delegates will be able to:
- understand the basic elements of ITS Technologies and Systems;
- describe a wide range of current and advanced ITS technologies and systems;
- apply knowledge from the two outcomes above to understand how new ITS technologies and systems should be developed, implemented, and utilised;
- guide and advise transport authorities and organisations about the effectiveness of existing ITS technologies and systems;
- assess existing ITS technologies and systems, comparing their effectiveness and how they meet needs; and;
- contribute to the design of new ITS technologies and systems and to their real-world implementation.
- Technologies: communications, databases, location-based services, sensors and human-machine interface (HMI);
- Systems: payment systems, monitoring and sensing, e-logistics, and cooperative systems/UTMC;
- Case studies of current systems;
- Case studies of new research.
