Data stream processing infrastructure for intelligent transport systems

View publication


Intelligence Transportation Systems are critical to improve the efficiency of modern transportation. A system that is flexible and powerful enough to handle diverse demands from a large user base, is still elusive. Studies have shown that developing and integrating the various components constitute a significant portion of the capital cost and complexity of such systems. In this paper, we present a stream processing infrastructure we call System S. System S enables the deployment of large scale applications. It supports a mechanism for sharing data sources, software components, and even intermediate results allowing a reduction in the cost of software integration, and ownership. We experiment the stream processing infrastructure with a Fleet Management Center, and demonstrate how the infrastructure can be used to address unique issues in traffic management. © 2007 IEEE.
