    including technologies, system architectures, human factors and
    Also covered by the Special Issue papers is the development of
    new tools and methods for ITS service development and
    evaluation, with enhancements to cost benefit analysis and
    multiple criteria analysis in order to evaluate multiple types of ITS
    services, models and simulators - including multi-driver
    simulators. Advances in big data mining are raised as well as
    service ecosystem analysis.
