Selected Problems of Traffic Engineering

FAST-CN055Acad. year: 2018/2019

The aim of the transport telematics is quality and comfort escalation, mobility resource, transport safety escalation, transportation services improvement as well as economy and effectiveness traffic processes increasing. The latest knowledge from series branch’s, transport telematics, logistics, telecommunications, transport engineering, traffic town planner and traffic safety will be inclusion in content of this study.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

A student acquires basic skills in problems of transport telematics in road, rail and air transport. He gets such good knowledge and skills to design and develop telematics applications in traffic control. He will learn modern methods of traffic control. These methods are based on the application of statistical models, fuzzy logic, neural networks and evolutionary strategies. The outputs are also practical examples of telematics applications in the Czech Republic.

Prerequisites
