Special Issue "Traffic Safety within a Sustainable Transportation System"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2021).
Interests: urban transportation networks; travel behavior; traffic flow; statistics and econometrics
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Interests: traffic safety; data analytics; traffic operations; network modeling
Traditional traffic engineering, transportation planning, and traffic safety activities are disconnected. However, actual transportation system performance and its sustainability are highly influenced by the interdependencies among decisions made from these three disciplines. Hence, research addressing interdependencies between traffic safety and other relevant activities is highly desirable. Advancements in analysis, prediction, and mitigation with sustainable transportation and safety considerations are extremely important to improve system performance.
This Special Issue aims to present state-of-the-art research related to recent advancements in sustainable transportation safety. Topics of interest included but are not limited:
- Sustainable transport policy effects on traffic safety
- Smart cities with safety and sustainable considerations
- Environmental effects on sustainable transport and safety
- Safety data analytics on sustainable transportation
- Connected and automated vehicles infrastructure systems
- Impacts of e-commerce and freight systems on traffic safety
