Special Session: Cooperative and Automated Driving in a Transition Phase
Recent developments in telecommunications, sensor, information processing and control technologies have enabled substantial progress in the domain of ITS. Automated driving is on the horizon, and will still need substantial and longer-term development and testing to make even the high automation levels a reality in complex situations, such as in a transit period of only partial market penetration. Cooperative and automated transport are certainly complementary. They are expected to bring substantial benefits in terms of road safety, comfort, (traffic and fuel) efficiency, environmental friendliness (therefore air quality improvement) and economic growth. Many challenges exist in this important domain.
The session targets the challenges of connected and cooperative systems towards automated driving. It will discuss use cases, traffic management procedures, role of digital infrastructure, V2X message sets, system integration, impacts of cooperative and automated driving and roadmaps. Requirements for strong cooperation between industry, authorities and academia will also be addressed.
Topics of interest
The areas to be discussed include, but are not limited to the following:
- Connected and automated vehicles
- V2X communications
- C-ITS deployment and standardisation
- Simulation and testing
- Future traffic management
- Impacts assessment of connected, cooperative and automated road transport
- 15 December 2019, Full paper submission
- 15 March 2020, Notification of acceptance of full paper
- 15 May 2020, Final submission
Please indicate you are submitting a Special Session Paper in the Papercept system with the session code: 11g16.

Call for Contributions on Special Session: Advanced Methods for Freight Transportation Data Collection and Modelling
Freight transportation has a critical impact on the economy, and is responsible for a significant share of transport externalities. Therefore the design of efficient and sustainable transportation systems is of crucial importance. There are increasing possibilities to develop the analytical tools to do so, due to new and innovative ways of big data collection. Examples are new generations of (semi-automated) commodity flow surveys, extensive automated truck trip travel diaries, bluetooth data, and so on. Working with these data introduces new questions. What methods can be used to acquire, extend or improve the data? How can descriptive and predictive models best build on this data?
We welcome contributions as scientific papers or presentation abstracts related to these questions. The contribution can be in the field of data collection methods, data analytics or model development, and relate to any type of stakeholder, economic sector or freight transportation network.
Contributions are welcomed in the form of a scientific paper (Page Limit 8-pages, 2-column, IEEE A4 format) or presentation only (Presentation abstract deadline: March 15th 2020).
