developments of mobile technologies, data acquisition and big data analytics,
and their integration with critical application domains such as transportation
systems have the potential to produce more efficient, real-time, intelligent
and safe transportation infrastructure. To increase the quality of
transportation services, wireless sensor networks, mobile phones, crowd
sourcing, RFID and Bluetooth technologies are being used. We surveyed
innovations that were transformed from ideas in research labs into commercial
systems in practical use. In this paper, we present some innovative mobile
technologies, services and platforms that are being used in modern
transportation applications including traffic data acquisition, traffic
management and control, route optimizations, infrastructure redesign, road
safety and enhancing user experience.
