Focus and Scope

The International Journal of Driving Science, Driver-Vehicle Systems in Advanced Environments (IJDS) focuses on the interface between intelligent and connected mobility and driver behavior and performance, aiming at efficient, safe, and clean transport of people and goods.

Published research is practice oriented and motivated by real-life problem areas, often requiring a multidisciplinary approach, combining a system-based modeling approach with experimental evidence. The target group of the journal covers researchers and engineers from different disciplines, involved in driver-vehicle systems in advanced environments with emphasis on the active position of the human as part of (closed loop) mobility processes and strategies.

Research fields include vehicle engineering; system and control engineering; electronics, information and communication technology; behavioral sciences and human factors; traffic management and control.
