Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Traffic is an important link connecting cities, and is an important channel for transporting people and logistics for urban development. As the main driving force for urban development, traffic has a decisive impact on the flow of production factors and the development of urban systems.

The design and application of traffic systems can promote the scientific development of traffic planning, maximize the use of traffic infrastructure, further strengthen the management and control of traffic systems, and further standardize traffic behavior. As long as the design of the transportation system can be carried out reasonably and the transportation system is applied in real life, the utilization of the transportation infrastructure and the transportation supply capacity can be effectively improved. At the same time, the rational application of the transportation system can also alleviate the problem of urban traffic congestion to a certain extent.

This Special Issue welcomes articles and presentations on the designs and applications of transportation systems, especially on addressing real-world challenges during the deployments of transportation systems.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Intelligent control and planning in transportation systems;
  • Security, privacy, and safety issues in transportation systems;
  • Design methodology and analysis of transportation systems.

The current prioritisation of road safety enhancement in the automotive sector is leading toward the near future implementation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADASs), aiming at the simultaneous intervention of braking and steering for impact avoidance in case of an impending collision. However, it is partially unclear how new technologies for controlling the steering will actually behave in the case of inevitable collision states; the need consequently emerges to propose and tune efficient ADAS strategies to handle the complexity of critical road scenarios. An adaptive intervention logic on braking and steering for highly automated vehicles is applied in the context of a “lane departure”, two-vehicle critical road scenario; the ADAS implementing the logic activates to minimise the injury risk for the ego vehicle’s occupants at each time step, adapting to the eventual scenario evolution consequent to actions by other road users. The performance of the adaptive logic is investigated by a software-in-the-loop approach, varying the mutual position of the involved vehicles at the beginning of the criticality and comparing the injury risk outcomes of the eventual impacts with those connected to the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). The results highlight a twofold benefit from the adaptive logic application in terms of road safety: (1) it decreases the frequency of impacts compared to the AEB function; (2) in inevitable collision states, it decreases injury risk for the vehicles’ occupants down to 40% compared to the AEB. This latter condition is achieved thanks to the possibility of reaching highly eccentric impact conditions (low impact forces and occupants’ injury risk as a consequence). The obtained highlights expand the literature regarding the adaptive logic by considering a diverse critical road scenario and investigating how fine variations on the vehicles’ mutual position at the beginning of the criticality reflect on the injury outcomes for different types of intervention logic.

Traffic management systems play a vital role in ensuring safe and efficient transportation on roads. However, the use of advanced technologies in traffic management systems has introduced new safety challenges. Therefore, it is important to ensure the safety of these systems to prevent accidents and minimize their impact on road users. In this survey, we provide a comprehensive review of the literature on safety in traffic management systems. Specifically, we discuss the different safety issues that arise in traffic management systems, the current state of research on safety in these systems, and the techniques and methods proposed to ensure the safety of these systems. We also identify the limitations of the existing research and suggest future research directions. Full article
