Intelligent transport system, ontology, Semantic Web


This paper presents an approach based on ontologies and Semantic Web specifications for information management of intelligent transport systems. The methodology includes the creation of an ontology-based model for representing spatio-temporal information as well as the model validation by means of the development of an urban transportation management system for a Brazilian metropolis. The authors argue that the combined use of ontologies and Semantic Web standard specifications for interchange and query makes it easier the development of intelligent transport systems concerning homogeneous and shared semantic representation among applications.
