Transportation infrastructures are a key component of a nation's critical infrastructures, covering physical assets such as airports, ports, and railway and mass transit networks as well as software systems such as traffic control systems. Because physical transportation networks attract large numbers of people, they're also high-value targets for terrorists intending to inflict heavy casualties. Protecting transportation infrastructure provides a potentially fruitful application domain for many subdisciplines of AI and closely related fields. The authors review research challenges in this domain.
