TECHNOLOGICAL BASIS OF “INDUSTRY 4.0”
With the majority of the world’s population now living in cities, the importance of distributed transport systems integration is increasing. This requires improved integrated transport infrastructures and communication within cities to reduce the cost of congestion on the roads, provide an efficient and convenient system for travelers and improve the management and future planning of public transport within cities. By sharing large amounts of transport data with the public, including automatic passenger counting information, pollution and traffic congestion can be managed to better levels and subsequently lead to improved overall public transport services.
The present paper aims at arguing the growing dependence of the efficient urban transport on the new technologies. The growing demand for cloud computing together with Internet of Things is based on the numerous advantages going along with this technology, provided that it is used appropriately. Cloud Computing is a revolution that will define Information Technology in the second decade of the 21st Century.
