IEE Proceedings – Intelligent Transport Systems : Subject Coverage

IEE Proceedings – Intelligent Transport Systems broadly covers electronic and electrical engineering, nanotechnology and medical instrumentation. Authors are invited to submit a paper in any of the subject areas listed below:

Information Collection and Processing
Data collection (travel times, incidents, congestion, road conditions, weather, etc.) Database representation and storage (databases, maps, directories, roadwork, events, public transport routes/schedules, etc.) Information dissemination (technologies, systems, user devices/interfaces, communications, infrastructure, integration, standards, security, reliability, etc.) Traveller services (trip planning, dynamic route guidance, location-based services, telematics, in-vehicle signing, parking information, personal alerts, etc.) Deployment experiences

In-Vehicle ITS, Safety and Vulnerable Road User Aspects
Collision warning, mitigation, and avoidance systems Automatic crash notification In-vehicle information systems Detecting and responding to adverse weather and road surface conditions Vision enhancement systems Protecting vulnerable road users E-safety

Public Transport
