In recent years, the field of transportation has been undergoing a transformative shift with the rapid advancement of connected and automated mobility technologies. These technologies, collectively referred to as CAM (Connected and Automated Mobility), hold the potential to revolutionize the way people and goods are moved within our urban and interurban landscapes. As we stand at the crossroads of technological innovation and transportation evolution, there is a growing need to comprehensively explore, understand, and address the multifaceted implications of CAM for the future of transportation.
The "Connected and Automated Mobility for Future Transportation" Special Issue aims to delve into the complex interplay between cutting-edge technologies, urban planning, policy frameworks, societal impacts, and the overall mobility ecosystem. This Special Issue serves as a platform to gather and disseminate research, insights, and critical analyses that shed light on the various dimensions of CAM and its potential to reshape transportation systems.
This Special Issue will publish high-quality, original research papers on the following topics:
- Communication-based solutions: including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I).
- Autonomous driving solutions: from perception technologies to advanced control techniques.
- Human-Centered Mobility: CAM has implications not only for vehicles and infrastructure but also for the people who use them. Researchers in this area will investigate user experiences, behavioral shifts, and societal acceptance of automated vehicles, addressing questions related to trust, comfort, and user interfaces.
- Environmental and Energy Impacts: The environmental benefits of CAM, such as reduced congestion and improved traffic flow, need to be weighed against potential downsides, such as increased energy consumption due to data processing. This theme explores the net environmental impact of CAM and strategies for minimizing negative effects.
- Economic and Business Models: CAM is poised to disrupt traditional business models within the transportation sector. Articles in this theme will explore the potential economic opportunities, challenges, and shifts in business paradigms brought about by CAM technologies and services.
- Safety and Security: Ensuring the safety and security of automated vehicles and their interactions is paramount. This theme examines the cybersecurity risks associated with CAM, as well as strategies for safeguarding vehicles and infrastructure from potential threats.
- Use case and practical examples. As an evolving technology, CAM is bringing a new paradigm that should be tested. This topic aims to provide information about these new business opportunities or practical applications of these new technologies.
By addressing these key themes, the "Connected and Automated Mobility for Future Transportation" Special Issue seeks to provide a comprehensive understanding of the ongoing CAM revolution and its implications for the future of transportation. Researchers, policymakers, industry stakeholders, and urban planners will find valuable insights within this collection of articles to guide their decisions and actions in the evolving landscape of connected and automated mobility.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
