The Intelligent Transportation System is a novel paradigm to improve conventional road-vehicle systems by using microelectronics, artificial intelligence, and other related technologies. ITS is based on three key functions: communication, control, and sensing. Machine-vision systems play important roles by detecting lane markings, vehicles, pedestrians, road signs, traffic conditions, traffic incidents, and even driver drowsiness. Challenges include making machine-vision systems less expensive, more compact, and more robust in various weather and traffic conditions. Developing new traffic paradigms that take advantage of today's component technologies, including machine vision, is also important.
