Abstract

In the past couple of years’ research focused on developing new tools for the management and control of the transport network have emerged under the guise of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). Here we are utilising emerging products, systems and services that are the result of applying new computing and communications to transport. Earlier this year the Office of Science and Technology published the findings Foresight Intelligent Infrastructure Study (IIS) which investigated how technology may evolve over the next 50 years to deliver a robust, sustainable and safe transport infrastructure in the future (www.foresight.gov.uk). Among the many recommendations and predictions on how the technology may deliver more intelligence into infrastructural systems was the view that pervasive wireless systems will have a significant future role in transport.
