The paper proposes a vehicle flux estimator, based on Received Signal Strength Indicator measurements in order to prevent the road traffic congestions. Successive RSSI intensity determinations and the corresponding time values were used to estimate the vehicle flux in various conditions. A hierarchical network model, including a simulation module and… (More)
A distributed architecture utilized to simulate road traffic using virtual machines and modern communication techniques and tasks scheduling is proposed. Based on collected information, which is used by complex road traffic simulator, the proposed system can estimate the current state in order to improve the traffic flow.
The problem of control and management of railway transportation is a complex task with major outcomes in a modern society. Trains are suitable for transporting peoples and goods with a good trade-off between cost and rapidity. A railway system consists of a network of tracks, list of stations, safety devices (signals, sensors, etc) and a set of trains.… (More)
