ABOUT THIS BOOK
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) have been a domain of substantial development for more than thirty years, enhancing safety, (energy and fuel) efficiency, comfort, and economic growth. Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), also referred to as Connected Vehicles, are a prelude to, and pave the way towards road transport automation. Vehicle connectivity and information exchange will be an important asset for future highly-automated driving. The book provides a comprehensive insight in the state of the art of C-ITS and automated driving, especially addresses the important role of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) infrastructure, and presents the main achievements (both theory and practice), as well as the challenges in the domain in Europe, the US and Asia/Pacific.
