Telematic Systems in the Italian Transportation Research Project
Published June 22, 1998 by Associazione Tecnica Dell'Automobile in Italy
In the framework of the Second Special Project on Transportation Research (PFT2) funded by National Research Council of Italy, several research activities on telematics have been developed, with the aim to set up innovative technologies to be applied in the different modal sectors and validated in some field tests.
The paper outlines the main results achieved in the project. First of all, a general overview on the forecast of the transport telematics functions which are expected to have a significant impact on transport systems is presented. Then a description of the most relevant products developed in PFT2 is reported, encompassing both methodological approaches and system prototypes, together with some preliminary outcomes of their application.
