Special Issue on Current and Emerging Technologies for Sustainable Transportation  Systems with Alternative Fuel Vehicles 

Due to the environmental concerns and the development of technologies, the petroleum fuel-powered conventional vehicle is being replaced by alternative fuel vehicles in the transportation system. This trend has driven research and technological developments in the battery, alternative fuels, infrastructure planning, electric mobility as a service, and autonomous vehicles. With these increased research and technology developments, alternative fuel vehicles have been introduced into real-world operation. This special issue will focus on new developments and research in sustainable transportation systems with alternative fuel vehicles, focusing on energy consumption modeling, network design, routing and scheduling, life-cycle cost analysis, and energy-efficient/ecological control methods, among other topics. It is a peer-reviewed platform for both industry and academia to present new research and developments. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: 

  • Energy/fuel consumption model
  • Feasibility analysis
  • Charging behavior model
  • State-of-the-art review of planning/control/battery management methodologies
  • Life-cycle cost/benefit analysis
  • Charging/fueling infrastructure planning
  • Network design for electrified urban logistics and public transit system
  • Demand-responsive routing and/or scheduling
  • Energy-efficient/Ecological control method
