The expected increase in transports of people and goods across Europe will aggravate the problems related to traffic congestion, accidents and pollution. As new road infrastructure alone would not solve such problems, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) has been considered as new initiatives. Due to the complexity of behaviors, novel methods and tools for the requirements engineering, correct-by-construction design, dependability, product variability and lifecycle management become also…

A Systematic approach to Risk Management in ITS Context – Challenges and Research Issues
The vision for achieving a systematic approach to the development of autonomous functions in ITS resting on the basis of EAST-ADL, which is an ISO26262 compatible architecture modeling language and methodology for the development and management of automotive Electrics & Electronics systems is presented.
Intelligent Transport Systems - The Role of a Safety Loop for Holistic Safety Management
This paper argues that run-time risk assessment will be necessary for efficient ITS, an information centric approach will be instrumental for future ITS to support all aspects of safety management and a formal basis is required to deal with the large amounts of information present in an ITS.
Methodology to assess safety effects of future Intelligent Transport Systems on railway level crossings
A methodology which comprehensively assesses the effects of in-vehicle and road-based interventions warning the driver of incoming trains at RLXs is discussed, with a focus on both benefits and potential negative behavioural adaptations.
