Call for Book Chapters: Implications of Digital Systems on Mobility as a Service

Organization: IGI Global
Categories: Engineering
Event Date: 2020-10-09 Abstract Due: 2020-10-02

The transport sector has undone a period of rapid change in the past 30 years, and while these changes have taken on different forms within individual transport modes (low-cost business models in aviation, digitalisation of assets and and the introduction of in-cab signalling on the railways, the deployment of managed motorways and traffic control on the highways) all have been enabled by the greater use of ICT and by the exploitation of data (customer, asset, and environmental).

"Implications of Digital Systems on Mobility as a Service", a forthcoming book to be published by IGI Global, will explore the role of data in the future of multimodal transport, showcasing the work of leading organisations in the transportation research community, and highlighting the roles that promising new technologies will play in readying our transport networks for the 21st century.

The editors are now in the process of inviting high-quality chapter submissions on topics including (but not limited to):

  • Big data for transport simulation and passenger choice modelling (e.g. modelling passenger flows in metro systems);
  • Data driven Digital Twins of transport system assets (e.g. dynamic modelling of transport interchanges);
  • Big data technology and transportation safety (e.g. analysis of driver data for identification of dangerous intersections);
  • Business analytics of transport data (e.g. planning of service provision);
  • The Internet of Transport Things (e.g. monitoring of freight in transit);
  • Big Data in support of asset management (e.g. Condition Monitoring of vehicles and infrastructure);
  • Improved services for customers (e.g. dynamic journey planning during disruptions, delivering the end-to-end journey across transport modes);
  • Traffic management and real-time transport operations (e.g. real-time management of traffic congestion).

You can submit your chapter proposal via https://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/4295 - please note that due to covid-19 the deadline for chapter submissions has been extended, as such the website may show old dates.
