To increase awareness of this problem among students and grow the professional community, we offer a teaching module focused on problems of design and development of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). This course will combine well-known theoretical approaches for mathematical modeling, IT solutions for intellectual analysis and real-time transport management, and our own original scientific results in the domain of Demand Responsive Transportation (DRT). Considering DRT as a particular case of ITS, we’ll describe modeling issues, algorithms and software architecture approaches to development of such systems, introduce the concepts of multi-agent modeling, give an overview of various logistic problems, give an overview of software tools which can be useful during modeling (may include IBM solutions like IBM Rational Software Architect, IBM DB2, IBM Business Modeler, etc.), provide master-classes on modern programming techniques, and involve students in development of a software prototype which demonstrates all these issues in practice.
