Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the transportation landscape evolves with advancements in technology and urbanization, the integration of vehicles into collaborative networks and the management of road traffic flow have become paramount. However, ensuring the security, reliability, and efficiency of these systems presents multifaceted Interpretable strategies are crucial for understanding the decisions made within collaborative vehicular systems, while threat-tracing mechanisms are essential for identifying and mitigating potential risks. Additionally, the accurate prediction of road traffic flow is indispensable for optimizing transportation infrastructures and enhancing user experience.
This Special Issue delves into the intersection of secure vehicle–road collaboration, interpretable strategies, threat tracing, and road traffic prediction. It aims to explore novel methodologies that enhance the transparency and reliability of collaborative vehicular systems while also addressing the imperative of forecasting road traffic flow. Submissions elucidating explainable AI techniques, safety evaluation frameworks, threat attribution models, and predictive analytics for road traffic are welcomed. This Special Issue seeks to foster a deeper understanding of these interconnected domains and advance the development of intelligent, secure, and anticipatory transportation networks.

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

  • Explainable AI techniques for enhancing transparency in vehicular collaboration systems;
  • Frameworks for safety evaluation and risk assessment in collaborative transportation networks;
  • Threat-tracing mechanisms for identifying and mitigating security risks in vehicular communication;
  • Predictive analytics models for road traffic flow prediction and optimization;
  • Interdisciplinary approaches to integrating interpretable strategies and threat tracing in transportation security;
  • Advanced machine learning algorithms for real-time threat detection in vehicular environments;
  • Cross-domain studies on the impact of interpretable strategies and threat tracing on transportation infrastructure resilience;
  • Ethical considerations and societal implications of implementing interpretable strategies in collaborative vehicular systems;
  • Case studies and practical implementations of interpretable strategies and threat tracing in real-world transportation scenarios;
  • Future directions and challenges in the development of secure and transparent vehicular collaboration systems.
