Computational Intelligence in Transportation Cyber Physical Systems


Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is a key field of research around mobility of people and goods. The term Intelligence in ITS mainly refers to innovation in methodologies and the creation of additional services rather than for actual intelligent algorithms and systems. Much of modern ITS technology was originally developed for use on roads, but ITS now covers the whole range of transportation systems. The past years have seen the development and deployment of ITS technologies around the world, increasing productivity, enhancing health, saving lives, time, costs and energy.

Many countries have invested massive public funds in research and technological development as the basis for urban and interurban implementation. They have also created their own ITS organisations to represent the industry, liaise with government, and share experience and best practice. Computational Intelligence plays a key roll in the next generation of Intelligent Transport Systems. Although there are many conferences related to ITS around the world, in this special session we will focus on the theoretical and technical aspects of these systems, specifically related to computational intelligence. The aim of this special session in Computational Intelligence towards Intelligent Transport Systems is to gather and focus high quality research papers that advance ITS, provide new insights and nourish new innovation in this growing field by means of advanced Computational Intelligence based techniques.
