Intelligent Transportation Systems and Powered Two Wheelers Traffic

Recently, a growing rate in powered two wheelers (PTWs) penetration to urban road networks has been observed with significant effects on traffic conditions. However, this increase is not consistent with either the research on the subject or the implementation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) dedicated to congestion relief. First, the authors review the PTW research conducted with respect to the modeling parameters, data issues, and their effect on a multimodal environment. Then, a concise review on ITS services and applications emphasizing on cooperative driving for solving macroscopic traffic problems is conducted, followed by a PTW-oriented ITS review. Findings reveal that PTW-oriented ITS are mainly safety oriented, whereas similar systems for solving traffic issues have not yet been proposed. Other interesting aspects of PTW traffic integration to ITS are also discussed, such as the data acquisition and the manner new technologies may support the development of PTW-dedicated ITS research and applications for macroscopic traffic improvements through the optimization of vehicles' microscopic interactions.
