A research performed by IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society (ITSS) on intelligent transportation systems is presented. The aim of ITSS is to bring together engineers and scientists working in theoretical, experimental, and operational aspects of electronics and electrical engineering and information technologies as applied to intelligent transportation systems. The present generation of vehicles is equipped with various sensors, CPUs, software systems, and communication capacities. In future, active in- and out-vehicle environment sensing will become standard, enabling intelligent driver and passenger assistance and increasing driver safety, efficiency, and comfort. Intelligent spaces are environments that can continuously monitor the functions, communicate, make decisions, and can act on decisions. Agent-based control offers an ideal approach to transportation management, addressing its geographically distributed and alternately busy-idle operating characteristics.
