Transportation Systems & Mobility

Major recent evolutions in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are linked to rapid changes in communication technologies, such as ubiquitous computing, semantic web, contextual design. A strong emphasis is now put on mobility improvements. These improvements concern both the quality of traveller's information systems for trip planning, the ability to provide real time recommendations for changing transportation means according to traffic information, and the quality of embedded services in vehicles to provide enhanced navigation aids with contextualised and personalised information.

Web 2.0 technology plays now a role of growing importance, as it supports users feed-back which becomes a mean for improving quality of travelers information sytems. Exchange of information between users about delay, cancellation and other occurring events provides more accurate and precise data on the current state of the transportation system.

Let us cite various projects where AxIS was and is still involved:
