Emerging traffic management systems and smart road environments are currently equipped with all necessary facilities to enable seamless mobile service provisioning to the users. However, advanced sensors and network architectures deployed within the traffic environment are insufficient to make mobile service provisioning autonomous and proactive, thus minimizing drivers’ distraction during their presence in the environment. An ideal system should provide solutions to the following two interoperability problems: interoperability between the in-car and roadside devices produced and programmed by different vendors and/or providers, and the need for seamless and flexible collaboration (including discovery, coordination, conflict resolution and negotiation) amongst the smart road devices and services. To tackle these problems, in this paper we propose UbiRoad middleware intending utilization of semantic languages and semantic technologies for declarative specification of devices’ and services’ behavior, application of software agents as engines executing those specifications, and establishment of common ontologies to facilitate and govern seamless interoperation of devices, services, remote systems and humans.
