The main objectives of the project are the elaboration of

  • the theory and methods of intelligent supervision, control and communication systems installed on vehicles,
  • an associated information service system for fleet management.

The development of the information service as part of the fleet management system that collects, analyses and evaluates data sent by individual vehicles, extends the utility of the installed vehicle systems and represents a significant added value to its application.

This system integrates the capabilities of recent mobile telecommunication and the sensory and data measurement systems on the vehicle into a unified framework and has the feature of maintaining a permanent communication among the data acquisition and control modules allocated on the vehicles of transportation companies. It can also supervise and control the transportation processes, assist the driver in decision making, support the co-ordination of transport activities, and provides an information database for all participants possessing the particular unit on the vehicle. An illustration of the system to be developed is shown in the Figure.
