Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) play a crucial role in the development of smart cities. These systems provide significant improvements in transportation efficiency, safety, and sustainability in contrast to traditional transportation systems. By integrating advanced technologies, such as complex network theories, neural network algorithms, and combinatorial optimization models, ITS offers transformative approaches for understanding and managing urban traffic. In the future, the development of ITS will become increasingly rapid, and the construction of smart cities will also continue to expand and improve with the support of ITS, creating a safer, more convenient, and higher-quality urban life for people. We are interested in articles that explore the potential and practical applications of ITS in smart cities. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Integration of AI and IoT in ITS for traffic prediction and management;
  • Truck platooning routing and logistics transportation optimization;
  • Driverless technology and reservation travel strategy in smart cities.
