Special Session on Future Mobility


Traffic congestion, air pollution, and the more recent pandemic have seriously affected the mobility of people and goods around the world. Future mobility must take these factors into account. This special session aims to provide a forum for researchers to present the latest developments of technology-led and technology-enabled solutions in this area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, autonomous vehicles, intelligent transportation systems, first/last-mile services, transport electrification, and V2X connectivity in the context of mobility.
