About the book

The transportation systems may and should play a significant role in let communities being smart, sustainable, inclusive and secure. Indeed, it is a common opinion that innovative and smart mobility systems for logistics and people may significantly change the traditional mobility paradigms, the traditional transportation planning approaches and may make the transportation system more sustainable and inclusive, and let the whole social and economic system more efficient.
The overall objective of the book is to propose a methodological/ technological state of play and an operational assessment on the complex issues regarding the management and optimization of the multiple components of a transportation system: users, infrastructures, technologies and services.

The book welcomes topics such as smart mobility, smart transportation systems, smart vehicle, smart infrastructures, smart people: citizens and users.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
