Abstract: Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) in urban environments are based today on modern embedded systems with enhanced digital connectivity and higher processing capabilities, supporting distributed applications working in a cooperative manner. This paper provides an overview about modern cooperative ITS equipments and presents a distributed application to be used in an urban data network. As a case example, an application based on an embedded CORBA-compliant middleware layer and several computer vision equipments is presented. Results prove the feasibility of distributed applications for building intelligent urban environments.

Keywords: intelligent transportation systems; cooperative ITS; event services; embedded systems; ambient intelligence; AmI; CORBA; computer vision; intelligent environments; urban environments.
