Call for papers for a virtual special issue at Transportation Research Part D on the Topic: “Automated/connected vehicles and environment”
Automated and Connected Vehicles (ACVs) have received growing attention worldwide, as significant progress has been achieved by manufacturers and academics over recent years. Forecasts of the impacts of ACVs on transportation systems and the built environment vary tremendously from contributing to compact urban development and an ideal transportation ecosystem (e.g., reducing overall congestion, energy consumption, and emissions through sharing rides and Vehicle to Vehicle [V2V] technology, enhancing accessibility for the mobility challenged population, etc.) to deteriorating suburban sprawl and more congestion (e.g., substantially inducing latent travel demand with ACVs traveling unoccupied to avoid parking fees and dead-heading between riders, etc.). Therefore, more knowledge is needed to proactively plan for a sustainable future with ACVs, especially in terms of interactions among ACVs, the built environment, and sustainability.
This special issue will be a collection of high-quality papers on ACVs and the environment. It welcomes original research and reviews on (but not limited to) the following topics:
Consumer acceptance of ACVs, no matter whether they are shared or self-owned;
Impacts of ACVs on travel behavior and transportation systems;
Impacts of ACV development and operations on environmental outcomes and energy consumption;
Impacts of ACVs on land use and economic development;
Equity issues associated with ACVs;
Innovative policies to support the transition to a world of ACVs.
