The transportation sector is undergoing rapid transitions influenced by strides in artificial intelligence, robotics and data analytics. These transitions are raising new scientific challenges in the planning, design, operation and management of transportation systems and offer a perspective on congestion mitigation, safety improvement, better sustainability and better resilience in response to incidents. The advent of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) promises significant advantages but also poses new challenges for understanding the planning, design, operation and control of transportation systems in terms of efficiency, safety, sustainability and resilience. Fundamental issues relate to the emergent behaviour of transportation systems with ubiquitous information, distributed sensing and decision making and different levels of automations. As a consequence, the potential benefits of these technologies on mobility and safety and the implications on the design and level equipment of roadway infrastructure are unclear. New traffic flow models, data analysis, computational frameworks and network control approaches are needed to obtain insight into the dynamic behaviour of transportations systems in the presence of CAVs and understand the impacts. This special issue welcomes submissions with respect to novel computational modelling in CAVs. The topics of interests include but are not limited to:
- Modelling traffic flow dynamics of connected and automated vehicles
- Novel control algorithms in CAV setting
- CAV and transit systems
- Intelligent and connected transport infrastructure systems
- Data fusion for traffic state estimation
- Analysis, modelling and management of dynamic traffic of pedestrians and cyclists
- Infrastructure adaptation
- Information shaping for connectivity
- Estimating Mobility impacts of CAVs
- Applications of CAVs to planning and operations (e.g. parking)
- Behavioural implications of CAVs
- Trajectory mining of CAVs
- CAVs and Traffic management
Please inform the guest editors and the editor-in-chief about your intention to submit a manuscript for possible publication in the special issue as soon as possible and email ALL of the following in the format requested to the Editor-in-Chief with copy to Guest Editors by August 1, 2018:
1) A statement that this manuscript is your "original unpublished work and the manuscript or any variation of it has not been submitted to another publication previously." This journal does not consider papers rejected by other journals. You may request an exception to this policy but must submit ALL the correspondence and reviews received from the journal that rejected your paper.
2) The pdf file of your paper prepared in double-column according to the attached journal template. This will be used to determine the length of your paper as journal pages. There is a charge of $250 per page for extra pages beyond 16 pages.
3) Editable Word or Latex files of your paper prepared in double-column according to the attached journal template.
4) The names, affiliations, h-index from either Web of Science or Google Scholar Citations, and full contact information including email addresses of six to ten leading researchers as determined by publication of high-impact journal articles in the subject area of the paper outside of your circle/region as a Word file. They should not be your advisor, advisee, research sponsor, or research collaborator. They can include senior researchers cited in your paper. I may choose some of the reviewers among them. Please disclose potential conflicts of interest if any. It is natural to presume that any researcher knows the leading researchers in his/her field of study (they are often cited in the paper) (List A).
5) Who are the top 10 researchers in the world in the subject of the paper as determined by publication of impactful journal articles in the subject area of the paper? Please provide their name, affiliation, email address, and h-index from either Web of Science or Google Scholar Citations as a Word file (List B). This will indicate whether the authors are familiar with the latest development in the field and their paper extends the state-of-the-art.
6) The attached Conscientious Reviewer form for each author (except students) as a Word file. Journal contributors commit to provide detailed reviews for papers submitted to the journal as the journal reviewers are often chosen among contributors to the journal (they become a member of the Society of CACAIE). This is how thoughtful and detailed reviews are obtained in a timely fashion.
