Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Applications of Advanced Technologies in Transportation Engineering, held in Newport Beach, California, April 26-29, 1998.

This collection contains 46 papers that give a rewarding insight into recent developments and the continuing applications of advanced technologies. Transportation engineering is a field that is changing profoundly as new information technologies and advanced materials are introduced to vehicles, infrastructure, and management processes.

Topics include:

  • decision support systems for real-time traffic control systems;
  • new technologies for detecting and reacting to roadway accidents or other incidents;
  • automation of vehicles;
  • new technologies for sensing traffic system performance and identifying vehicles;
  • new techniques for traffic prediction that can support real time control and pricing strategies; and
  • applications of geographic information systems.
