Transportation Cyber-Physical Systems provides current and future researchers, developers and practitioners with the latest thinking on the emerging interdisciplinary field of Transportation Cyber Physical Systems (TCPS). The book focuses on enhancing efficiency, reducing environmental stress, and meeting societal demands across the continually growing air, water, and land transportation needs of both people and goods.

Cars, traffic lights, and the built environment are becoming connected and augmented with embedded intelligence. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are "smart" ecosystems that encompass hardware, software, and physical components, integrated and closely interacting to sense the changing state of the real world. To help accelerate the research and development of transportation and mobility CPS-driven innovation for the security, reliability and stability of society at-large, Transportation Cyber-Physical Systems integrates ideas from Transport and CPS experts and visionaries, consolidating the latest thinking from disparate places into a single platform.

Key Features

  • Bridges the gap between the transportation, CPS, and the civil engineering communities
  • Includes numerous examples of practical applications showing how diverse technologies and topics are integrated in practice
  • Examines timely, state-of-the-art topics such as big data analytics, privacy, cybersecurity, and smart cities.
  • Shows how TCPS can be developed and deployed, along with its associated challenges
  • Pedagogical aids such as Illustrations of application scenarios, architecture details, tables describing available methods and tools, chapter objectives, and glossary
  • Contributors from academia, government, and industry across the globe
