Application of Fuzzy Logic to Intelligent Transportation Systems

2009 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems

 Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are combinations of different emergent hardware and software technologies with the aim to make different aspects of transportation easy to maneuver, manage, and make the system efficient and economic. The recent advancement in internet and wireless technologies, as well as smart algorithms based on soft computing techniques are not fully utilized to improve the safety and ease of driving, as well as to combine timely information about road and traffic conditions for smoother and faster traffic management. With cheap tiny sensors, GPS, and wireless ad-hoc networks available to communicate information, we are in need for intelligent algorithms to exploit the information to achieve goals of Intelligent transportation systems.

 In this special session we look forward to receive interdisciplinary high quality unpublished research papers proposing intelligent algorithms based on fuzzy logic, and hybrid of other soft-computing techniques to support and improve various aspects of transportation systems, of which a few are listed below:

Driving Systems : safety in driving, collision avoidance, alarm systems, navigation, driver assistance, etc.
Road information : Knowledge extraction from traffic information, accidents, weather and raod condition, on road assistance and services information, etc.
Commercial transportation : Commercial fleet management, Procurement and Delivery management, etc.

 The special session will also serve as a platform for exchanging ideas and problems among soft computing community and other communities working in the area of ITS

Submission Guideline: Submission deadline is February 1st 2009, for more details please refer to the conference website:
