Information Systems in Transportation

  • Alf Zimmer
  • Michael Stein


The increasing significance of information technology as well as application networks for varying areas, e.g. aviation and shipping as well as automobile and rail traffic are characteristic traits of an information society (cf. Harms and Luckhardt 2005). Further developments in the fields of microelectronics, computer, software and network technology, but also display technology, etc. are the driving force of this progression.
