Traffic congestion on urban roads is a problem of great interest nowadays since it strongly affects security and pollution. Workforce centralization, population and economic growth alongside with continuous urbanization are the main causes of traffic congestion. As cities strive to update/expand the current infrastructures the development of Information Technologies bring new possibilities as an alternative solution for transportation systems.
The following projects aim to explore some of the new technologies used in the so called Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). They objective is to study to a certain level of detail some of the new traffic management systems that will conduct new ways of transportation in the XXI century. The general idea is based on the fact that information collected by sensors within traffic networks or in-vehicles sensors may capture information regarding the traffic condition, perform estimation of unknown traffic states and decide on specific actions to modify this state.
