  • 1. TECHNOLOGIES, PARTNERSHIPS AND BUSINESS MODELS Developing new value-added services in the navigation markets TELEMATICS FOR TRANSPORT SYSTEMS AND INFOMOBILITY: THE EVOLUTION IN EDUCATION AND E-LEARNING Bruno DALLA CHIARA, prof. eng. (bruno.dallachiara@polito.it) POLITECNICO DI TORINO, Dept. DITIC-Transport, I Faculty of Engineering, Torino – I W001 – World Visions 9.30 - 12.45 am, Conference Room 4 October 15th, 2009 Torino - I, Lingotto 1
  • 2. Transport systems evolve: traditionally, they have integrated competencies in Industrial - mainly Mechanical and somehow Electrical - and Civil Engineering. In recent years a number of technological proposals from the fields of ICT have arisen and been proposed in literature, then a variety of devices and products appeared on the international markets. We need now to enhance Transport systems through new technologies. The new aims result safety, security, quality (e.g., less queues) and efficiency of the transport systems for passengers and freight, optimising the use of natural resources and respecting the environment. As a consequence, we need to integer or merging, with Transport systems - so Mechanics and Civil engineering - competencies on Telecommunications, Information technologies, Electronics and Automatics, to pursue the so-called “ITS”. ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino
  • 3. To pursue this aim, an apposite web site on an innovative multimedia platform for e-learning on ITS and infomobility has been developed by the POLITECNICO DI TORINO. It has been supported by the Italian Ministries of Transport and Infrastructures (I), for developing a part of the ITS e-learning educational material, with specific reference to a general introduction to ITS and the Italian ITS Framework Architecture.

  • 4. ITS: a definition ITS integrate telecommunications, electronics and information technologies - in short, ‘telematics’ - with transport engineering in order to plan, design, operate, maintain and manage transport systems. This integration aims to improve safety, security, quality and efficiency of the transport systems for passengers and freight, optimising the use of natural resources and respecting the environment. To achieve such aims, ITS require procedures, systems and devices to allow the collection, communication, analysis and distribution of information and data among moving subjects, the transport infrastructure and information technology applications. As far as ITS deal with information technologies and mobility of people, may also be defined as “Infomobility”; it may involve road transport or any other mode as well as their interactions. ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino
  • 5. As regards the e-learning platform, a cutting-edge multimedia platform designed specifically to meet e-learning requirements has been developed and at present subject to enhancement. The web site: www.its-elearning.net ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 5/12
  • 6. Some specific contents of the e-learning platform: it contains introduction to basics technologies for ITS; each module contains a list of ITS subjects; each subject has typically either a simulation or at least some pictures or graphs; the platform contains numerous vocally commented – with “text to speech” – simulations, for better understanding; a number of official documents of EU are readable or downloadable; some specific subjects are presented in a nested logic, to be investigated according to the previous knowledge of the user- reader; each module includes a number of multiple choice tests at the end of it; passing positively a test allows to enter the subsequent level of the subject. ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 6/12
  • 7. Some examples Each subject may be studied separately from Each module the others contains a list of subjects ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 7/12
  • 8. Some examples A number of vocally commented – with “text to speech” - re- playable simulations allow a rapid and better understanding of the specific topics The e-learning contains the introduction to basic technologies of ITS ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 8/12
  • 9. Some examples Each module includes a number of multiple choice tests at the end; answers are recorded by the server Each subject contains typically either a simulation or at least some pictures or graphs for illustrating it in a better way ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 9/12
  • 10. Some examples Passing positively a test allows to enter the subsequent level of the subject Short, illustrated and – sometimes - vocally commented descriptions are more suitable for a rapid understanding of the topic ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 10/12
  • 11. A number Some examples of official documents on ITS are readable and can be downloaded Some specific subjects are presented in a nested logic, so that they may be investigated or not according to the previous knowledge of the user-reader. ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 11/12
  • 12. Some examples Two specifc lessons are devoted to the National ITS architecture Some specific references to the European ITS architecture are reported ITN - TORINO, e-learning, 15 Oct 2009 - Politecnico di Torino 12/12
