The capability to detect and/or forecast traffic conditions is of utmost importance in road management applications. Recent advances in technology have made available numerous new monitoring systems exploiting larger fleet of probe vehicles. Together with traditional volume and time mean speed measurements relative to a local section monitored continuously… (More)
High density radio base station networks for mobile communication systems (i.e. GSM, GPRS, UMTS) are nowadays available, especially in populated urban areas and along the major roads and communication routes. Such radio networks encompass a high number of microwave radio links of different lengths (from hundreds of meters to dozens of kilometers), depending… (More)
The paper deals with two different heuristic approaches for solving the problem of optimal location of traffic count sections (OLTCS), which is a crucial issue of the design of area wide ITS traffic monitoring centers. The first method applies deterministic rules on O/D flows and O/D pairs coverage. The second is based on a genetic algorithm (GA). Both are… (More)

1 BACKGROUND In the last three decades various researchers had been facing the problem of maximizing global network performances by optimizing traffic signals. The main difficulty of the problem arises from the existing interaction between network performance and users' route choice. In fact, drivers make their travel choices in order to minimize their own… (More)
In this paper, authors report a procedure to forecast the route travel time, based on different advanced traffic data, both historical and current.
Dyslexia is a learning disability affecting the ability to process written and sometimes even spoken language. It affects educational opportunities of about 10% of children, regardless of their intelligence. One of the main challenges is to be able to identify Dyslexia in preschoolers. To this aim we have developed a set of serious games that are the core… (More)
