    In this book, the author outlines a Robust Web Parking, Truck and Transportation Portal (RWPTTP) for integrating parking and transportation services – a revolutionary approach in contrast to incremental change for managing traffic congestion. Autonomous vehicle technology, artificial intelligence, internet of things (IOT), and other interconnected hardware and software tools will assist autonomous parking and transportation services and provide next-century infrastructure for consolidated transportation customer services. The book highlights currently available autonomous parking and transportation technologies, and the development of an integrated and intelligent transportation service/system (IITS) platform, with specific use of technologies to reconfigure the transportation industry. The author also suggests many regulatory and policy changes to simplify data collection, traffic operation, introduction of a duplicate transportation system using light rail (LRs) and high speed rail (SPRs), and redistribution of parking spaces along such routes, using renewable energy.

    A Nortel, GTE and Fujitsu alumnus, Dr. Chatterjee has done pioneering work in the area of packet networks, ISDN, digital switching, ATM and wireless technology. He brings over 30 years of expertise in specific knowledge of the information technology and telecommunications field, associated with business planning. He was Director of Global R&D for Fujitsu and published technical papers. He led a group in the strategic business rationales for creation of the first broadband superhighway in North Carolin,a using ATM technology for distance learning and telemedicine applications. Since leaving Fujitsu, Dr. Chatterjee has acted as a technical and business advisor to Network Optic Communications and Quad Research. He also co-founded Eximsoft International and had been running it successfully for the last 15 years. He has pioneered a prototype development of secured mobile e-commerce following the Mobile Electronic Transactions (MeT) standard (at its early stage in 2000s) in collaboration with Ericsson (mobile company) and Entrust (an internet security company) that was showcased in many countries. He has two trademarks (TPP™ and SMA™) on new business ideas. He earned his Ph.D in Computer Communications Networks at the University of Ottawa, Canada.

    "This book is a must read for all stakeholders of transportation economics, since it articulates the economic enterprise opportunities for parking solutions – such as creating a "Google" for parking, based on cutting edge technological advances that will create an industry and jobs for the future….This book is a must read for all as we go towards an e-mobility society."
