Aims
After passing the course, the student can:
  • Identify relevant technology, their operational envelops and the required capabilities of human operators for the application of ITS.
  • Identify, describe and design potential Intelligent Transport Systems and services (ITS) for travelers.
  • Anticipate the interrelated factors that influence the impact of ITS applications on the traffic and transport system.
  • Examine and analyze the behavior of travelers in the design and evaluation of ITS applications.
  • Assess acceptance and appreciation of technology for mobility needs.

 
Content
Application of ICT in the transportation domain is intended to make traffic and transport Safer, Accessible and Affordable, efficient (i.e. Throughput) more Environmentally friendly and Comfortable. We use for this aim the acronym SATEC. The application of ICT in the transport domain is called Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
While Transport Engineering generally focuses on high level socio-economic, spatial and environmental aspects of a traffic system, this course will make you familiar with the diversity of (road users') behavioral aspects (like: distraction, adaption, acceptance, trust) on rather individual level and how these aspects may influence performance of transportation systems.
In addition to particular knowledge about relevant ITS-technology, this course will make you familiar with means to simulate and evaluate the interaction between a technical intervention and the traffic participants. A simulation may consist of a low-fidelity prototype or interactive demo that allows potential users to experience (parts of) your designed ITS solution. Developing such prototype or demo will be facilitated with a workshop. Insight in the interaction between technology and human behavior will allow to reflect on the potential benefits and pitfalls of the particular ITS under development. Such reflection will help to bring the human behavior back into the ‘bigger’ picture of how the particular ITS solution improves the SATEC aspects.
In short: This course gives a state of the art overview on ITS and will teach how to apply knowledge of relevant technology and human capabilities for the design and evaluation of ITS. There is a particular focus on (a) the interaction between offered technology and human behavior, and (b) how this interaction influences performance of ITS.
