A web server is a technology that utilises an hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) request to manipulate many processes via the world wide web or computer system. It is used in many industries and markets but not yet widely used in our intelligent transportation system world.
One of the benefits is that an embedded web server resides in the equipment itself, it is not a separate software that needs to be installed to computer. You can access it with any computer as long as you have a web browser (for example Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox) and a connection with the equipment (remote or local). You just need to enter the IP address of the equipment. It eliminates a lot of burden with older technologies when you needed to have the right software version, the right operating system version (Windows) and you had to make sure you keep updating the software and hardware.
