Transportation Research Part C will publish a Special Issue on “Operations with Automated and Connected Vehicles: Applications in Freight and Passenger Transport”. The CFP is available here: https://www.journals.elsevier.com/transportation-research-part-c-emerging-technologies/call-for-papers/special-issue-operations-automated-connected-vehicles and here.
This Special Issue calls for papers that contribute to developing methods for managing and operating transport systems that make use of AVs, with movement and routing decisions taken by the vehicles individually, or via a central computer algorithm. The editors encourage submission of work that sheds light on the possibilities, opportunities, limitations or challenges that AVs will bring, to the daily logistics of managing transport systems, from both freight and passenger perspectives. The special issue’s focus is on AVs’ implications for the planning, management and operations of transportation systems according to the scope of Transportation Research Part C; it is not on the development of the AV technology itself.
Deadline for submissions is July 1, 2017
