Building Intelligent Transport Systems with Reactive Blocks and OSGi
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
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
