Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the main challenges of smart cities is to address how emerging transportation data, technologies, and applications can be integrated with existing systems in a city to address transportation challenges. This Special Issue aims at demonstrating how advanced data and intelligent transportation system technologies and applications can be used to reduce congestion, keep travelers safe, protect the environment, respond to climate change, connect underserved communities, maintain the reliability of power systems, and support economic vitality. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Blockchain and distributed ledger solutions for data veracity and privacy in wireless sensor networks
  • Organization-based multi-agent systems
  • Applications of IoT to combine edge and cloud resources
  • Distributed sensing and data gathering for IoT
  • Stochastic navigation in smart cities
  • Electric vehicle routing
  • Probabilistic forecast of vehicle patterns and owners’ behavior
  • Swarm-based mobility in smart cities
  • Applications of electric vehicles as the source of demand response
  • Decentralized control and management of electric and hybrid vehicles
  • Privacy-based monitoring and control of vehicles
  • Smart parking-lots
