The Role of Location Based Technologies in Intelligent Transportation Systems
Nagendra R. Velaga and Arjuna Sathiaseelan
Abstract: Information Technology (IT) has played a significant role in enhancing the efficiency of modern day transportation systems. Recent advances in sensors, communication and information systems have enabled transportation systems to be more intelligent. Various location technologies and data integration methods (also known as map-matching algorithms) are used to support the navigation modules of such transport systems. This study provides a survey of location based technologies that encompass an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) and provides an insight into the Required Navigation Performance (RNP) parameters that are required for decision-making in efficient delivery of transport systems. The reseachers also describe how various location sensors and map-matching algorithms are capable of supporting the navigation modules of ITS.
