Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Applications of Advanced Technologies in Transportation Engineering, held in Capri, Italy, June 27-30, 1995.
This collection contains extended abstracts of papers concerned with the challenges and opportunities faced by the transportation engineering profession as it prepares to enter the 21st century. While these challenges cover a wide spectrum including increasing congestion, continuing problems with safety and environmental degradation, and acute budget constraints, technical innovations offer opportunities to address these problems. Major advances in the fields of automation, information systems, and telecommunications have the potential of opening new horizons in transportation engineering by developing new products and procedures while making substantial improvements in cost savings and productivity.
- automatic vehicle monitoring,
- advanced traveler information systems,
- image processing and vehicle detection,
- real-time traffic control,
- advanced public transportation systems,
- automated incident detection,
