Transportation Systems can benefit from the introduction of increased adaptivity specially in the area of traffic control. Also the trend in today's transportation system is to increase multimodality and thus increases the complexity of design and control. Because of the many complex aspects of a traffic system -human behavioral considerations, vehicle flow interactions within the network, weather effects, traffic accidents, long-term (e.g., seasonal) variations, etc.--it has been notoriously difficult to determine the optimal parameters of the system and adaptivity is considered as a prime priority. The use of Intelligent Hybrid Systems in order to increase adaptivity is a challenge in some areas of Transportation and specially in Traffic control.


Some possible directions SAS can be applied in Transportation application areas:
  • Enhance adaptivity in conventional traffic control systems
  • Adaptive control of multimodal transportation systems
  • Novel Intelligent control systems for transportation problems
  • Transferability, with minimum cost, of Transportation Systems in other geographical sites
  • Simulation tools for modelling, optimisation, management and control with adaptive characteristics for training and design.
  • transportation Network design with adaptive features

The Key Nodes involved in Transportation applications are to engage in technology transfer and research according to the activity plan but also by initiating task forces.

Industrial members should benefit from:
  • Receiving free information (case studies, consultancy etc.) provided by other members.
  • Networking for creating consortia for projects as EUNITE provides a great pool of relevant Academic Research and Industrial partners.
  • Identifying the future trends and hot areas in Transportation applications of Smart Adaptive Systems
  • Increased interaction Academia-Industry as it can lead the direction of academic work in this field
  • Contributing relevant benchmark problems (via Technology Transfer) and get an insight of the benefits SAS can achieve in their specific problems.
  • Getting information and training in workshops, tutorials and other educational activities of EUNITE (via Training and Education) so they get an advantage vis-a-vis their competitors.
