Abstract [en]

Traffic systems are the cause of both significant carbon emissions and injuries in our world today. In an effort to better the traffic systems, a large amount of work is being put into making them intelligent. By increased information sharing and decision-making based on better data, intelligent traffic systems (ITS) hope to increase efficiency and safety on the roads. Making ITS can be quite complex as the systems are already complex and large, it is therefore important to make the development and quality of ITS as good as possible. This thesis aims to find out whether Reactive Blocks and OSGi, a modelling based tool and a component system run in Java, is the right platform on which to build an ITS, specifically in the Norwegian traffic system environment. Simply put, the question the thesis aims to answer is: To what degree is Reactive Blocks and OSGi a good platform for ITS development? To answer the aforementioned question, a literature study has been conducted, as well as making and testing a prototype application. From the results of the literature study and the prototype a theoretical evaluation of the platform has been made. The results indicate that Reactive Blocks and OSGi is a very good fit to the platform of ITS. It is in all likelihood a right choice when developing ITS. It has beneficial features that the competition lacks, that make up for its respective drawbacks. Based on the results, Reactive Blocks and OSGi is recommended for developing ITSs.
