Special Section: Advances in Intelligent Transportation Systems in Smart Cities

International Journal of Distributed Sensor Network

2017 Impact Factor : 1.787

Deadline for manuscript submissions: June 30, 2019

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) comprise the union of several technologies with the aim of providing comprehensive optimization of the urban mobility of a city and bringing greater safety to drivers, as well as comfort and entertainment for passengers. As a result, ITS employ data, communication, and computing to provide services and applications for tackling and possibly solving a wide range of transportation problems in modern large cities. These applications rely on the collaboration between elements that integrate urban and transportation systems, such as sensors, mobile devices, and vehicles, for introducing real-time awareness of the environment. The appropriate junction of all these factors considerably contributes to the sensing and gathering of data for evaluation and later implementation of due responses by a control system.

Due to the dynamic nature of entities in ITS, it offers a diverse set of challenges including, but not limited to, interoperability, high mobility, decentralization, anonymity, security, privacy, trust management, uncertainty, and pervasiveness. Besides these challenges, several issues like scalability, reliability, adaptability, and validity of available solutions are still unexplored.

This Special Collection is expected to provide a platform for academics and industrial researchers to identify and debate technical problems and recent accomplishments associated with ITS. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

* Architecture, resource management and applications

* Leveraging Fog Computing (Edge Computing)

* Design challenges for protocol development in ITS

* ITS security and privacy

* Smart-cities-based Machine Learning;

* Intelligent data mining and forecasting;

* Multi-agent systems applications;

* Inteligent structural engineering;

* Computer graphics and performability;

* Blockchain and remote sensing;

* Ubiquitous computing;

* Fuzzy logic and emerging applications in smart IoT/Cloud paradigms;

* Designing energy efficient Road Side Units (RSUs)

* Quality of Service (QoS) in ITS

* Smart and connected vehicles: V2V; V2I V2X

* Cloud based VANETs

* Vehicular Cloud

* Demand responsive smart vehicles

* Detection, recognition, and classification of traffic

* Vehicle location and event prediction

* Autonomous vehicle technologies

* Context-aware computing and Internet of Things Services in ITS

* Artificial intelligent in ITS

* Protocols and infrastructure and standards for ITS
