Call For Papers

Special Issue on “Evolving Systems for Smart Transport and Big Data Analytics”

1. Aims and Scope
All modes of transportation are now generating unprecedented amounts of data. While cargo and people are being transported across air, sea and land, a multitude of sensors are reporting on their constantly changing state. These firehoses of data, hold key knowledge for deciphering the complexity of transport, which amongst others includes capturing methods of optimizing supply chains, understanding fluctuations in demand, reducing emissions and improving safety and efficiency of operations. Unfortunately, current state of the art techniques and technologies are incapable of dealing with these growing volumes of high-speed, loosely structured, spatiotemporal data streams that require real-time analysis in order to produce actionable intelligence.
Extracting knowledge from diverse data sources requires the development of innovative algorithms, services and architectures capable of fusing and ingesting data at such volume, velocity and variety. Data fusion combines multi origin information to determine relationships among data; thus improving the understanding of a current complex environment but also attempting to predict its future state. Intelligent solutions are in demand which exhibit the characteristics of autonomic and intelligent big data mining, capable of reducing data dimensionality and resolving the complexity of the problem state in an automatic or semi automatic way. A new dimension of possible services is revealing based on the innovative dynamics and perspectives of machine learning and automation of knowledge generation and exploitation.
At this front, collaborative research is necessary at the intersection of transport and the emerging Information and Communication Technology domains including, information fusion research, artificial intelligence, intelligent systems, big data architectures, semantics, cloud computing and Internet of Things (IOT). This special issue invites papers demonstrating architectures, applications, and experiments reporting on the adoption of intelligent big data approaches in the transportation domain.
