Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The AI wave is sweeping the world. The milestone for carbon neutrality agreed upon in the Paris Agreement is imminent. Sustainable transportation systems are crucial to both economic and urban development, and an intensive, efficient, economic, intelligent, green, safe, and reliable transportation system is key with regard to a country's economic growth, carbon footprint reduction, and its citizens' living standards. To firmly grasp this important opportunity, it is necessary to combine emerging technologies with traditional transportation systems, solve major scientific challenges, and enable sustainable transportation systems with intelligent management and applications embedded within.

The focus of this Special Issue is to investigate how transportation processes can be made efficient, intelligent, green, and safe. Our goal is to facilitate further discussions regarding sustainable urban transportation, intelligent transportation systems, and other relevant topics within the exciting field of sustainable transportation. A variety of solutions and technologies will be investigated, with innovative and smart technologies being integrated into transportation projects. In addition, we will examine the use of eco-friendly energy sources, the implementation and application of safety measures, and the reduction in traffic congestion and carbon emissions while simultaneously increasing economic benefits. This Special Issue welcomes original research articles and comments. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Intelligent transportation systems;
  • Collaborative management and transportation efficiency;
  • Structural health monitoring and maintenance;
  • Traffic safety detection technology;
  • Transportation big data analysis and artificial intelligence;
  • Environmental protection technology related to transportation;
  • Simulation environment and new modeling tools;
  • Advanced safety devices and support systems.
