Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) play a central role in improving traffic safety, and managing logistics and transport operations. Thanks to this technology, vehicles are now able to communicate with each other thanks to the V2V (vehicle to vehicle) communication system, and also with the nearby road infrastructure V2I (vehicle to infrastructure) with the aim of reducing the number of road accidents, reducing congestion and hence carbon emissions, and increasing road safety and transport operations efficiency.

This special issue aims to gather the last trends and challenges raised in different research communities working on intelligent transportation systems, with a particular focus on the studies dealing with the development of tools issued from Operational Research, Artificial Intelligence, security, and traffic control fields.

An upcoming special issue of the journal Information is dedicated to the subjects described before. Interested authors are invited to submit original work to this special issue coordinated by Prof. Nacima Labadie and Prof. Lyes Khoukhi. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: Intelligent vehicles, Traffic control and management, Modelling, control and simulation algorithms and techniques, Deep learning and Artificial Intelligence, Logistics and supply chain, Smart mobility.

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.

This paper focuses on the optimization problem of a signal timing design based on the concept of bus priority. This optimization problem is formulated in the form of a bi-level programming model that minimizes average passenger delay at intersections and vehicle delay in lanes simultaneously. A solution framework that implements the differential evolution (DE) algorithm is developed to efficiently solve the model. A case study based on a real-world intersection in Beijing, China, is implemented to test the efficiency and applicability of the proposed modeling and computing methods. The experiment’s result shows that the optimization model can not only significantly improve the priority capacity of the buses at the intersection but also reduce the adverse impact of bus-priority approaches on the private vehicles for the intersections.
