Special Issue II: Road Safety in the Era of Intelligent & Connected Vehicles

Realizing connected vehicle and advancing automation are being ushered in, and the roadway systems are at the forefront of adaptation to intelligent and connected vehicles (ICVs). It is important to investigate the impacts of ICVs on road safety in terms of their behaviours, influence on traffic flow, and propagation in the whole road network, before being rolled out for the ultimate goals such as improving operation and safety of transportation system. This special issue aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and policymakers to present their latest research findings and engineering experiences in evaluating the safety effects resulted from the deployment of ICVs and application of ICV technologies to improve road safety.


We are soliciting original high-quality research papers on specific topics that include but not limited to the following:

  • Data-driven approaches for ICV safety evaluation and management
  • Risk modelling and simulation for ICVs in road safety analysis
  • Surrogate safety measures for ICV safety analysis
  • Roles of human factors in safety of ICVs
  • ICV path finding and decision support algorithms to improve road safety
  • Anti-collision, passive safety and active safety of heterogeneous traffic flow
  • ICV accident investigation, analysis and prevention
  • Emerging solutions for road safety of heterogeneous traffic flow
