Navigation and Tracking of Road-Bound Vehicles Using Map Support

The Handbook of Intelligent Vehicles provides a complete coverage of the fundamentals, new technologies, and sub-areas essential to the development of intelligent vehicles; it also includes advances made to date, challenges, and future trends. Significant strides in the field have been made to date; however, so far there has been no single book or volume which captures these advances in a comprehensive format, addressing all essential components and subspecialties of intelligent vehicles, as this book does. Since the intended users are engineering practitioners, as well as researchers and graduate students, the book chapters do not only cover fundamentals, methods, and algorithms but also include how software/hardware are implemented, and demonstrate the advances along with their present challenges. Research at both component and systems levels are required to advance the functionality of intelligent vehicles. This volume covers both of these aspects in addition to the fundamentals listed above.


Route planning for unmanned air vehicles
Tulum, Kamil; İder, S. Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, automatic routing technologies for unmanned air vehicles are investigated. A route planner that minimizes the fuel consumption and maximizes the survivability is developed. While planning the route, using more than one objective entails the auto-routing problem to multi-objective optimization considerations. In this work, these considerations are handled with search algorithms. In order to assess the route options, a fuel consumption model and a survivability model are utilized for the route...
Design of smart controllers for hybrid electric vehicles
Özen, Ekin; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
This thesis focuses on the feasibility of designing a commercial hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). In this work, relevant system models are developed for the vehicle including powertrain, braking system, electrical machines and battery. Based on these models ten different HEV configurations are assembled for detailed assessment of fuel consumption. This thesis also proposes a smart power management strategy which could be applied to any kind of HEV configuration. The suggested expert system deals with the exte...
Multiobjective design optimization of rockets and missiles
Öztürk, Mustafa Yavuz; Tekinalp, Ozan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2009)
Multidisciplinary design optimization of aerospace vehicles has attracted interest of many researchers. Well known aerospace companies are developing tools for the mutlidisciplinary design optimization. However, the multiobjective optimization of the design is a new and important area investigated very little by the researchers. This thesis will examine the approaches to the multiobjective and mutlidisciplinary design optimization of rockets and missiles. In the study, multiobjective optimization method cal...
Tracking Reported Vehicles in Traffic Management and Information System using Intelligent Junctions
Elci, Atilla; RAHNAMA, BEHNAM; Amintabar, Amirhasan (2010-05-01)
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 p...
Energy-Aware Data Delivery Framework for Safety-Oriented Mobile IoT
Al-Turjman, Fadi (2018-01-01)
The proliferation of wireless multimedia sensor networks has given rise to intelligent transportation systems as a mobile data-sharing model. This vision can be extended under the umbrella of the mobile Internet of Things to include versatile resources, such as smartphones, radio frequency identification tags, and sensors on roads that can be utilized in emergency situations. The facilitation of such a vision faces key challenges in terms of interoperability, resource management and energy consumption. In t...
