Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The intelligent transportation system effectively integrates advanced information, communication, sensor, electronic control, and computer technology into transportation, service control, and vehicle manufacturing. This results in harmony and close cooperation between people, vehicles, and roads, thus improving transportation efficiency, easing traffic jams, reducing traffic accidents, and decreasing energy consumption and exhaust emissions. With the advancement of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation, some new technologies and ideas are emerging and being applied to intelligent transportation systems. To better grasp the current development trend of domestic and overseas intelligent transportation systems, promote the foundation research and technological innovation of intelligent transportation systems, and deepen the academic exchanges of intelligent transportation systems, we are organizing a Special Issue titled "Application of new technology and new ideas in intelligent transportation system".

Urban freight transportation is the activity that has the greatest impact on urban areas in terms of sustainability and livability, and it is, therefore, necessary to reduce its impact. Currently, there is a lack of methodologies to validate the methods proposed by companies to reduce their impacts. The proposed methodology presents the implementation of a KPI (Key Performance Indicator) based on the triple bottom line approach: economic, social and environmental, since a company with good results on the “triple bottom line” will experience an increase in its economic profitability and its environmental commitment while reducing the impacts that generate negative perceptions of it. This KPI is the OEEM (Overall Equipment Effectiveness for Mobility), a redesign of the well-known OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), but adapted to the needs of urban freight transportation since this indicator provides a quick overview of the efficiency or performance of the activity according to five components: quality of deliveries, vehicle utilization, availability of the vehicle–driver tandem and efficiency (result of traffic and efficiency of delivery stops). The methodology developed will be implemented in a case study where the KPI will be calculated on the basis of real-time data and visualized on a control panel; thanks to this KPI, the company will be able to validate whether the measures taken have a positive or negative impact.

The construction of multilayer rail transit systems is a necessary way to realize “modern metropolitan areas on rail”, improve resource sharing, and increase travel services, where data integration is of utmost importance. To break data silos and realize data flow between different rail systems, a fine-grained access control framework is proposed in this paper. Through categorical and hierarchical schemes, a universal security scale is established for cross-domain data resources. Based on this, a trust and sensitivity attribute-based access control (TSABAC) model is put forward to describe the characteristics of the access control process. Furthermore, the method of policy integration is discussed, as well as the solution to the policy incompatibility problem, due to cross-domain interaction. As shown in practical application and simulation analysis, this framework can meet the requirements of security and granularity. This research is of great significance for promoting the high-quality development of urban agglomerations and metropolitan areas, and improving the quality and efficiency of rail transit.
