Knowledge Discovery from Mobility Data for Intelligent Transportation Systems

Special Issue on IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems

The recent technological advances on telecommunications create a new reality on mobility sensing. Nowadays, we live in an era where ubiquitous digital devices are able to broadcast rich information about human mobility in real-time and at a high rate. Such fact exponentially increased the availability of large-scale mobility data which has been popularized in the media as the new currency, fueling the future vision of our smart cities that will transform our lives. The reality is that we just began to recognize significant research challenges across a spectrum of topics. Consequently, there is an increasing interest among different research communities (ranging from civil engineering to computer science) and industrial stakeholders on build knowledge discovery pipelines over such data sources. However, such availability also raise privacy issues that must be considered by both industrial and academic stakeholders on using these resources.

This special issue intends to bring together transdisciplinary researchers and practitioners working in topics from multiple areas such as Data Mining, Machine Learning, Numerical Optimization, Public Transport, Traffic Engineering, Multi-Agent Systems, Human-Computer Interaction and Telecommunications, among others. The ultimate goal of this venue is to evaluate not only the theoretical contribution of the data driven methodology proposed in each research work, but also its potential deployment/impact as well as its advances with respect to the State-of-the-Art/State-of-the-Practice in the domains of the related applications.

This special issue will be published in IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems entitled Knowledge Discovery from Mobility Data for Intelligent Transportation Systems.
