A Pervasive and Heterogeneous Infrastructure to control Urban Mobility in Real-Time Within the domain of “Intelligent Transport Systems IPERMOB proposes a multi-tier approach for developing an Information System for urban mobility. IPERMOB proposes a new generation of integrated systems based on the optimization and inter-operability of the chain formed by: - data collection systems; - aggregation, management, and on-line control systems; - off-line systems aiming at infrastructure planning; - information systems targeted to citizen and municipality to handle and rule the vehicle mobility. Specifically IPERMOB proposes low-cost wireless technology (WSN) and image processing techniques to estimate traffic-related information. In IPERMOB vehicular networks (IEEE 802.11a/p) will be interoperated with WSN (IEEE 802.15.4) and connected to a centralized database through wide band 5 GHz link (IEEE 802.11h). As tested, IPERMOB will provide real-time information about parking availability and vehicle flows on the landside of the International Airport of Tuscany (Pisa).
