BUILDING AN INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT INFORMATION SYSTEM PLATFORM FOR SMART CITIES


Initial Testbed @ Middlesex University London, (Hendon Campus)


Project Outline:
Developing a prototype test-bed to monitor vehicles in the Transportation Network using VANET Technology, thus facilitate the development of a better transport system using intelligent algorithms.


Project Summary:
Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANETs) are new networks that will enable support for life-critical and infotainment applications in vehicular environments. VANETs will be brought about by the deployment of Roadside Units (RSUs) located along the transport infrastructure and On-board Units (OBUs) in the vehicles or worn by pedestrians or cyclists. VANETs are now receiving a lot of attention as it is regarded as a major part of research into Smart Cities of the Future.

Department of Transport (DfT) has awarded us T-TRIG (Transport-Technology, Research and Innovations Grant). This project is to build a prototype VANET network on the Middlesex University campus and its surroundings roads. This is a major route into Central London and would allow us to better understand the use of VANETs in urban and motorway environments. The information from this VANET Testbed will be stored and processed using a Cloud platform at Middlesex University and will enable visual and data analytics to be applied such that this information will also be available to everyone using smart phones, etc.
