1 Citation (Scopus)


This chapter presents the historical evolution and a prospective vision of the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), with a specific focus on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Transportation Cyber-Physical Systems (TCPS) enhance transportation systems’ efficiency and reliability by enhancing feedback-based interactions between the cyber and physical systems. In addition to an introduction to CPS and TCPS, this chapter illustrates the architecture and advanced technologies to achieve traffic intelligence. Next, we discuss the technical challenges and highlights feasible solutions. Finally, we demonstrate the significant roles of CPS in ITS and conclude the chapter.
