Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the key ingredients for the realization of Smart Cities. IoT devices are essential components of the Smart Cities infrastructure, as they can provide information collected from the environment through sensors or allow other systems to reach out [...]

Abstract

Vehicle automation is one of the major challenges of nowadays’ transport system and its goals are to achieve the ideal energy efficiency, the minimum environment impact and the highest safety rate. In this context, IoSense is the project which will deploy new capabilities (Sensors, [...]

Abstract

In order to have a complete Architecture of the ACTIVAGE platform, the device domain constituted of smart sensor nodes, gateways, connectivity and its associated protocols must be also considered. Therefore, it is imperative to identify the different devices required to implement [...]

Abstract

Fusion is becoming a classic topic in Intelligent Transport System (ITS) society. The lack of trustworthy sensors requires the combination of several devices to provide reliable detections. In this paper a novel approach, that takes advantage of the Joint Probabilistic Data Association [...]

Abstract

Long haulage road transport consumes considerable amounts of energy in today's world. Predictive control strategies based on digital maps can significantly lower the portion being wasted in traditional cruise control operated highway driving. Such control strategies rely on high quality [...]

Abstract

Railway switches are crucial for normal operation and during disruptions of the railroad system since they allow trains to use alternative routes. Switches moving parts are subject to high deterioration and prone to malfunctioning, representing a potential safety hazard. Thus frequent [...]

Abstract

The lane-level localization of vehicles with low-cost sensors is a challenging task. In situations in which Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs) suffer from weak observation geometry or from the influence of reflected signals, the fusion of heterogeneous information presents [...]

Abstract

The automatic detection of road related information using data from sensors while driving has many potential applications such as traffic congestion detection or automatic routable map generation. This paper focuses on the automatic detection of road elements based on GPS data from [...]

Abstract

The monitoring of reinforced concrete structures allows us to detect the presence of aggressive agents into of the concrete matrix, on site and in a real time. These aggressive agents can produce the unexpected failure of the structures, thus discovering their presence is a fundamental [...]
