Carlos Lima Azevedo (DTU), Meng Xu (Beijing Jiaotong), Bilge Atasoy (TU Delft), Arun P. Akkinepally (MIT) and Ravi Seshadri (SMART) will organize a special session on “Mobility Management through Pricing, Incentives and Tradable Permits” at the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference in Auckland, New Zealand, 27-30 October 2019.
The submission is open at https://www.itsc2019.org/manuscript-submissions and the deadline is 31 March 2019. When submitting your paper, please select the special session using the CODE v91gx.
Short description of the special session:
“Several control mechanisms have been proposed to tackle inefficiencies in congestion and vehicular emissions in real time, such as dynamic pricing, incentives and, more recently, quantity control mechanisms such as tradable permits/credits schemes. All these have known deployment limitations and have yet to realize their theoretical benefits through ICT based mobility solutions. With smartphones being a point of information and communication for travelers and vehicles increasingly being equipped with sensing, communication and information features, the design and operation of these control mechanisms under an ICT based framework may finally bring realizable efficiency in a multi-modal, smart mobility paradigm. Evidence on the motivation, identification and deployment of integrated and coordinated control policies and operations of mobility services will help in closing the gap from theory to practice. This special session seeks to gather recent efforts in (1) policy and (2) system designs, (3) operation and (4) evaluation of innovative ICT based mobility management systems and to discuss the research needs for its successful deployment. Theoretical and empirical research within (but not restrict to) the following topics are welcome to this special session:
- Integrated vs. stand-alone mobility services
- Real-time congestion, vehicular energy and emissions management
- Multi-modal network optimization mechanisms
- Real-time coordination management systems for urban logistics
- Dynamic pricing
- Tradable permit/credit schemes
- Incentives optimization and efficient allocation
- Personalization of mobility services”
