Description & Coverage
Description:

With the recent advancements and implementations of technology within the global community, various regions of the world have begun to transform. The idea of smart transportation and mobility is a specific field that has been implemented among countless areas around the world that are focused on intelligent and efficient environments. Despite its strong influence and potential, sustainable mobility still faces multiple demographic and environmental challenges. New perspectives, improvements, and solutions are needed in order to successfully apply efficient and sustainable transportation within populated environments.

Implications of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) in Urban and Rural Environments: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on recent transportation improvements and the development of mobility systems in populated regions. While highlighting topics such as human-machine interaction, alternative vehicles, and sustainable development, this publication explores competitive solutions for transport efficiency as well as its impact on citizens’ quality of life. This book is ideally designed for researchers, environmentalists, civil engineers, architects, policymakers, strategists, academicians, and students seeking current research on mobility advancements in urban and rural areas across the globe.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Demand Transportation Services
  • Gamification System in Mobility
  • Internet of Mobility (IoM)
  • Internet of Mobility as a Service (IoMaaS)
  • MaaS Ecosystems
  • Mobility as a Service (MaaS)
  • Public-Private-People Partnership
  • Rural and Urban Mobility
