About the Project

This research will address many issues related with efficient, reliable and quick exchange of information and data over sensor networks for intelligent vehicular traffic systems. The data are received only at boundaries between some segments and averaged within possibly irregular time intervals. Additionally, there are missing data and sensor failures that need to be taken into account. Traffic models and filters are going to be investigated and developed dealing with the appropriate fusion of multiple sensor data. Both centralised and distributed traffic state estimate techniques will be investigated in the light of real time traffic management and control systems.
