TC 7.4. Transportation Systems

Scope

The use of automatic control and associated technologies for improving the efficiency of transportation systems is an essential part of any modern continuously evolving society. The focus of the TC7.4 is related with the area of transportation systems. The long scope of the TC7.4. addresses ground transportation systems(road and guided transport) and air traffic control systems for both passengers and transported goods with regard to modeling, simulation, surveillance, automatic control, optimization, real-time operations, information processing, and decision support. Control applications and automation for efficient freight and passenger transportation where optimization and advanced technologies play major roles are intensively consulted.

Common aspects and generic techniques for all transportation modes (road, rail, air, maritime, and intermodal), e.g. in the areas of system engineering, human-machine interface, human factors, navigation, logistics, safety, simulation, surveillance, control, and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are also addressed. Specific topics and areas include but not limited to:

 

·        Intelligent Transportation Systems;

·        Automated Highway Systems;

·        Intelligent/Automated Vehicles;

·        Ramp Metering and Speed limit Control;

·        Modeling, Simulation, Control and Optimization of Transportation Systems;

·        Traffic Light Control;

·        Sensor Technologies for Control;

·        Weigh in Motion;

·        Public Transportation;

·        Control applications and automation;

·        Freight Transportation: Control, Optimization, Routing etc;

·        Rail Transportation: control, scheduling, modeling, simulations;

·        Marine Transportation: Control, scheduling;

·        Ports and Terminals;

·        Air transportation;

·        Safety and warning devises;

·        Human factors;

·        Simulation Tools/Commercial software
