The staff of the laboratory takes part in the BSc programme of Transportation Engineering offered by the Faculty of Transportation Engineering.
Road Traffic Control I.
This subject gives an introduction to road traffic automation and control. Students become familiar with the basic notions and theories, and get acquainted with the hardware architectures of road traffic control systems. Traffic detection technologies, signal automation, road traffic controllers, variable message sign technology as well as traffic control centers and monitoring systems are introduced. During the semester, the students visit the Budapest Traffic Control Center and industrial companies related to road traffic control.
Road Traffic Control II.
Based on the knowledges of the previous course (Road Traffic Control I.), more complex principles are highlighted in this course. An introduction to the control theories related to traffic control systems is provided. The hardwares and softwares provided by the laboratory are introduced and exercised. The students practice the basics of the traffic controller programming in JAVA, the application of the VISSIM software, and PLC programming.
The following courses are parts of the specialization ‘Transport Automation’ in the master programme ‘Transportation Engineering’.
Engineering of transport automation systems
The purpose of this course is to develop the engineering skills through greater exercises from the field of transport automation. Examples from the field of road traffic, and railway traffic, as well as from air traffic are presented.
Modeling and control of vehicle transportation systems
Micro- and macroscopic modeling of vehicle transportation systems. Design of traffic control startegies.
Traffic modelling, simulation and control
This course is part of the Msc Program for Autonomous Vehicle Control Engineer connected to the RECAR (Research Center for Autonomous Road Vehicles) aiming to provide the most important theories and practices in the field of road traffic automation. Students become familiar with the basic hardware architectures of road traffic control systems, traffic detection technologies, signal automation, road traffic controllers.
