Special Issue "Smart Sensing, Data Communication, and Decision Making in Intelligent Transportation and Logistics Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 March 2020.
Intelligent transportation systems are expected to improve utilization of the existing infrastructure, alleviate the congestion problem, increase safety, and enhance quality of life. Modern logistics systems are being introduced to improve the performance of supply chains and reduce the costs of logistics operations. The implementation of these systems requires advanced sensing and communication technologies for real-time monitoring of the transportation processes. Moreover, new methods have to be elaborated to effectively utilize the collected transportation data for decision making and control tasks.
Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to present the latest developments in sensing, data communication, and intelligent systems for transportation and logistics. Investigators in the field are invited to contribute with their original, unpublished works. Both research and review papers are welcome.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Communication technologies for transportation and logistics:
- Sensor and vehicular networks;
- Smart sensing;
- In-network data processing;
- Internet of Things and Internet of Vehicles;
- Mobile edge computing;
- Fifth-generation mobile communication (5G).
Applications of artificial intelligence in transportation and logistics:
- Decision support systems;
- Machine learning;
- Deep learning;
- Evolutionary computations;
- Self-organizing systems;
- Swarm intelligence and bio-inspired computing;
- Multiagent systems;
- Modeling and simulation of transportation systems;
- Cellular automata;
- Pattern recognition and image processing.
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
