Special Issue Information
Transportation systems are a basic, leading, and strategic industry and an important service industry in the national economy. They are an important support for the sustainable development of society as a whole. With the rapid development of emerging technologies such as big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence, the development of sustainable transportation systems has ushered in new development opportunities.
This Special Issue aims to gain insights into the sustainable development of road transport planning and optimization, vehicle fuel consumption and emission, traffic safety, and transportation resilience. We welcome high-quality papers that propose effective road transport planning initiatives and take an integrated approach to addressing road transport planning and optimization problems.
Consequently, the Guest Editor encourages submissions of state-of-the-art research articles on sustainable road transport system planning and optimization. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Data-driven transport system planning and optimization;
- Integration of multi-modal transportation systems;
- Public transport planning and optimization;
- Shared mobility;
- Mobility as a service;
- Vehicle fuel consumption and emission modelling;
- Traffic safety analysis and modelling;
- Resilience in transportation systems.
