Edge Intelligence in Intelligent Transportation Systems: A Survey

Edge intelligence (EI) is becoming one of the research hotspots among researchers, which is believed to help empower intelligent transportation systems (ITS). ITS generates a large amount of data at the network edge by millions of devices and sensors. Data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) is at the core of ITS development. By pushing the AI frontier to the network edge, EI enables ITS AI applications to have lower latency, higher security, less pressure on the backbone network and better use edge big data. This paper surveys Edge Intelligence in Intelligent Transportation Systems. The authors first introduce the challenges ITS faces and explain the motivation of using EI in ITS. They then explore the framework of using EI in ITS, including the EI-based ITS architecture, the data gathering and communication methods, the data processing and service delivery, and the performance indexes. The enabling technologies, such as AI models, the Internet of Things, and Edge Computing technologies used in EI-based ITS, are reviewed intensively. They discuss the edge intelligence applications and research fields in ITS in depth. Typical application scenarios, such as autonomous driving, vehicular edge computing, intelligent vehicular transportation system, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in ITS environment, and rail transportation control and management, are explored. The general platforms of EI, the EI training and inference in ITS, as well as the benchmark datasets, are introduced. Finally, they discuss some of the challenges and future directions of using EI in ITS.
