CONTEXT

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) promise to be one of the most dynamic and innovative specialization fields with a large expected industrial and business growth over the next decade. ITS aim at adding information and communication technologies to transportation infrastructures and vehicles in order to allow public agencies and transportation companies to improve

  • traffic safety by reducing accidents.
  • traffic efficiency by regulating and better distributing the traffic load, or smoothing tolling station congestions.
  • the carbon footprint towards green driving and logistics, or deploying fully electric vehicles.

OBJECTIVES

The emphasis of the program is on:

  • Providing a balanced theoretical and practical expertise required by leading industries in the ITS domain.
  • Analysis and quantifications of the benefits of ITS on the environments and the society.
  • Understanding the challenges and required mechanisms to efficiently interconnect vehicles and transportation infrastructures.
  • Gaining a deep understanding on major application domains of ITS, such as traffic safety, traffic efficiency, or infotainment and comfort.
  • Formulation and modeling of problems typically observed in ITS applications,
  • investigation of the impact and benefits of vehicular communications in the different application areas of ITS.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This program targets:

  • Students who already hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) and engineers that are willing to specialize in the rapidly growing vehicular networking and ITS community,

  • researchers with experience on vehicular communication, protocols and algorithms, who are interested in acquiring a new interdisciplinary perspective on the vehicular networking research for ITS.

 TESTIMONY

The automotive industry has never had so many challenges in the field of telecommunications than today : vehicle embedded networks, telematics for onboard entertainement, telediagnostic, car2car communications, etc. Studying at EURECOM gave me a solid technical background to contribute to practical solutions.
