Post Master's degree in Communications for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)
The degree offers the necessary knowledge required by engineers and managers to design ITS applications and the related ICT mechanisms to understand the innovations and unique opportunities of ITS applications.
Intelligent Transport Systems solutions 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.
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. Understanding current and future ITS challenges and acquiring the technical and non technical means to provide practical solutions require a unique combination of expertise and experience at the boundaries of computer, telecommunication and transportation sciences.
In order to understand wireless vehicular communication for ITS, one not only needs to study the methodologies and protocols managing the transmission, reception and handling of information among vehicles and with transportation infrastructures, but also the wireless communication conditions between them. It may therefore be seen as an extension of mobile communication to the challenging mobile wireless vehicular environment, while at the same time considering transportation-specific constraints such as the characteristics of vehicular mobility.
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.

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.
