For the past three decades or so, many major initiatives have been launched in the field of transportation, from smart roads to smart cities and automated highway systems to self-driving vehicles. In this talk, we identify the similarities and differences of those initiatives and draw lessons from them for assessing the new opportunities in utilizing the cutting-edge technology in information and communication to achieve better efficiency in our transportation system. In the AI world, “interaction” is the key feature and has been incorporated into many systems. We discuss from the system’s perspective how the interaction between individual vehicles and system control can be realized to improve the efficiency of a transportation system in terms of cost reduction and increase in system throughput while at the same time protect privacy and ensure fairness.
