Intelligence applications in transport systems.
Report 2002.LT.5678, Transport Technology, Logistic Engineering.
When a system learns on its own without any external intervention and uses
that knowledge in execution of its future tasks in ways similar to humans,
the system is believed to have some higher degree of intelligence. The
same definition can be applied to the intelligence application in
transport systems. In view of this definition, combined with the several
other infrastructure developments and the modern state of communication
systems, an effort has been made in this concise report to study if there
is any 'real' intelligence in the transport systems. It is the attempt of
this study to reach at answers to questions like, what kind of intelligence
has been applied in these areas, and to what degree, what property of
intelligent system still needs to be incorporated, what has been the
current scenarios and what are the possible future directions, etc.
Accordingly the report has been organized first in defining the
intelligence and intelligent systems. Features of intelligent transport
systems and the existing so called intelligence in the transport systems
are then dealt with in the subsequent sections. Some existing projects and
the possible future activities come next in the discussion and finally the
report wraps up with a concise conclusion.
