Tracking Reported Vehicles in Traffic Management and Information System using Intelligent Junctions

Elci, Atilla
Amintabar, Amirhasan
This study highlights a security scenario involving vehicles in a Traffic Management and Information System (TMIS) network. TMIS and its nodal architecture, nicknamed Intelligent Junction (IJ), are summarized from our recent work. System design sets an example to a software architecture implementing autonomous semantic agents through semantic web services, junction-based sensor networks, local- and wide-area networking through wire/wireless integrated communication infrastructure. It is so construed as to provide (near-) real-time services throughout the network. This introduction is with reference to the SOA of Cooperative Labyrinth Discovery Robotics and Traffic Management and Information System Projects. This also takes up several issues including real-time goal-oriented coordination of semantic web services. Especially described are its essential functions crucial to aid security applications. A security scenario concerning tracking and routing reported, say missing, vehicles is considered and shown how to graft it onto TMIS network. Simulation results show promising outcomes. Performance of the system in terms of mean response time is analytically derived. Simulation and analytical results agree. Research involving similar development base is suggested.


Secure message authentication protocol for can (controller area network).
Mertol, Sarp; Doğanaksoy, Ali; Department of Cryptography (2020)
The widespread communication of vehicles with each other and road infrastructure has raised concerns about how to ensure network security of the electronic control units (ECUs) in the vehicle. The fact that networks such as the Controller Area Network (CAN), which is commonly used in in-vehicle communications, will also be connected to external networks (e.g. 3G / 4G mobile networks) will allow malicious adversaries to benefit from the vulnerability of the CAN. The authentication of messages of ECUs in the ...
Lane Change Scheduling for Autonomous Vehicles
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (2016-05-20)
The subject of this paper is the coordination of lane changes of autonomous vehicles on a two-lane road segment before reaching a given critical position. We first develop an algorithm that performs a lane change of a single vehicle in the shortest possible time. This algorithm is then applied iteratively in order to handle all lane changes required on the considered road segment while guaranteeing traffic safety. Various example scenarios illustrate the functionality of our algorithm.
Location analysis of the mobile/24 emergency service vehicles of a case company
Yetkin, Raife Meltem; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2012)
The aim of this study is planning the locations of emergency centers (ECs) as well as the number of vehicles in each EC of Corporation, Man Truck and Bus Group, to respond to the calls (arrival of the mobile/24 emergency service vehicle to the broken vehicle) within the desired time. The company aims to respondto the calls within 90 minutes. If the EC cannot respond to the calls within 90 minutes, they should be satisfiedwithin 180 minutes. We propose a probabilistic programming approach to maximize the num...
Communication and coordination for urban intelligent transportation: architecture and algorithms
Atagoziev, Maksat; Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-2-10)
In the scope of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), the automation and coordination of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) lane changes (LCs) have a strong impact on driving safety and traffic throughput. Accordingly, this thesis develops algorithms for the coordination of CAV LCs that are then used for controlling the traffic at intersections. First, this thesis focuses on the coordination of LCs of a group of CAVs to minimize the time when all LCs are completed, while keeping small inter-vehicle ...
Detection of urban traffic patterns from Floating Car Data (FCD)
ALTINTAŞI, ORUÇ; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye; Tuncay, Kağan (Elsevier BV; 2016-09-07)
Real time data collection in traffic engineering is crucial for better traffic corridor control and management. In the literature, many data collection methods have been used such as; magnetic loops, road tube counters, piezo sensors, radars, Bluetooth etc. to estimate the link occupancy, average speed or density of a corridor. More recently, Floating Car Data (FCD) has become another important traffic data source and has an increasing usage due to its lower cost and higher coverage despite its reliability ...
