Intelligent Remote Speed Control of Foresight Trucks with Driver Interface

Various researches have shown those vehicles travelling at excessive speed are more likely to cause an accident. In UK, an estimated 1,200 fatalities per year on the roads can be attributed to inappropriate vehicle speed. It is believed that if it were possible to control vehicle speed within the legally accepted limits, on the road, the number and severity of these fatalities would be greatly reduced. Therefore, there is a need to develop methods of externally or remotely controlling or adapting vehicle speed limits. One method of affecting the necessary speed limits would be through the development of intelligent remote speed control system that employs the technologies of Intelligent Transport System that focuses on infrastructure - vehicle - infrastructure communication. An intelligent methodology is needed to integrate the technologies, the driver and the vehicle in order to start to address some of the concerns of deploying the systems.

Specification and Modelling of an Integrated Fleet Management System for Foresight Freight Vehicles

During the last decade the complexity of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), has grown in terms of computer applications, functionality, communication technologies and specification. In recent times, some of these systems (e.g. fleet management systems, navigation systems, freight management systems, etc.) are well established in real-life applications, while others (e.g. vehicle-to-vehicle communication, collision avoidance systems) are in the final stages before wide spread deployment. Although individual ITS are in operation, an integrated architecture that consists of more than one of these systems has not been fully developed [1]. The first step for the development of such architecture will rely on the development of appropriate tools that will expedite the systems design process and move towards the implementation of the systems integration.

Web-Based Vehicle Remote Access and Its Application to In-Vehicle Network Integrated Fleet Management

The demands for effective and efficient management of commercial vehicles and freight transport have led to the increasing needs for sophisticated fleet management systems (FMS) for reducing the operation cost of commercial vehicle operation, improving custom service and asset management as well as maintaining the safety and security. The availability and declining costs of telecommunications and information technologies afford opportunities for using real-time information to achieve these targets and the emergence of internet technology make it possible to transfer updated real-time information through more widely available communication media. This paper introduces the web-based remote-access concept for the real-time information acquisition, which has been used to enhance functionality of a dynamic fleet management system.
