Intelligent transportation system (ITS) applications have been widely applied to the highway system, and are being used by an increasing number of small urban and rural transit systems throughout the United States. The objectives of this study were to first, identify what technologies are currently used...

 

Federal track safety regulations require railroads to inspect all tracks in operation as often as twice weekly. Railroad companies deploy expensive and relatively slow methods using human inspectors and expensive automated inspection vehicles to inspect and monitor their rail tracks. The current practices...

 

Each year thousands of people are killed and injured due to weather-related crashes. While outcomes of many incidents could not be changed, many accidents could be avoided through implementation of intelligent transportation systems. Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS) have been adopted by transportation...

 

Using intelligent transportation systems to help report traveling conditions has been reserved for urban areas. The goal of this research was to help develop a new methodology for incorporating travel times calculated from intelligent transportation system (ITS) technology into Wyoming's road and weather...

 

In intelligent transportation systems, most of the research work has focused on lane change assistant systems. No existing work considers minimizing the disruption of traffic flow by maximizing the number of lane changes while eliminating the collisions. In this thesis, we develop qualitative and quantitative...

 

This report summarizes the work performed during the second phase of a two-phase research project. The first phase focused on two main areas: freight safety and wind vulnerability, and the identification of critical infrastructure. Phase I also tackled another major but less defined task in bringing...

 

Traveler Information Systems, a part of the larger field of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), were originally utilized in urban areas to reduce congestion. Traveler information has become increasingly important in rural areas, especially in areas with adverse weather conditions such as Wyoming....

 

This document, the final report for the Implementation of Advanced Technologies in Rural Transit Service for the State of North Dakota project, describes the motivation for, development and operation of, and lessons learned from an Internet-based trip planning system. The system was developed as an addition...

 

Strategic Highway Safety Plans (SHSP) provide states with an excellent opportunity to identify and engage local traffic safety partners in a program under the auspices of the SAFETEA-LU goal to reduce fatalities on the nation's roadways. States have completed the initial plan and have moved into implementation...

 

Advances in computers, telecommunications, and information system technologies have led to the development of a wide range of applications that can improve the efficiency and quality of service for all forms of transportation, including public transit. These developments provide additional tools to help...
