IEEE Deploys Robotics for Safer Travel

IEEE has reported the inclusion of advanced robotic technology, sensor and various forms of wireless methods into the transport network including bulk transport, traffic handling and message transmission systems, thereby providing an intelligent and secure traveling for the people.

IEEE members are adopting active traffic management, prognostic modeling, artificial intelligence and mobility management for enabling the vehicles to interact with the road side tools for better risk identification in order to reduce mishaps and also to activate the emergency alarm if required.

Solutions enhancing the technology behind the new intelligent transport system include creating “electric highways” featuring adequate charging stations to facilitate electric cars for long drives, deploying robotic simulator research for building traffic-adaptive cruise control, searching for new arithmetic methods for resolving tasks ensuring safety and control in driver assistance systems, developing wire- free sensor based early alert systems to avoid vehicular crash, adopting wireless means of communication for enhancing instantaneous dispatching of the train, including magnetic suspension and propulsion, or "maglev" technology into linear-motor powered transport system for improving the bulk transport, utilizing various regulations and methods to reduce the occurrence of any spiteful assault on the robotic transport systems and forming fundamental initiatives for developing computational transport systems.

Azim Eskandarian, one of the Board of Governors of IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society has stated that they will continue to incorporate the latest technologies of computation and engineering to upgrade the communication systems guiding automotive, railway and aircraft. He added that their engineers’ intense research on improving various processes will include vehicle collision avoidance, improved traffic alert systems and enhanced driver assistance. Christoph Stiller and Richard Thornton are a few of the IEEE members working on novel road traffic and transportation control proposals. The forthcoming events organized by IEEE include the 13th International IEEE Conference 2010 on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSC 10) which will be held in Portugal from 19 to 22 and the 72nd IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference 2010 (VTC2010) which will be conducted from 6 to9 September, in Canada.
