Mobile internet coupled with GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) and the implementation of electric and autonomous vehicles are creating disruptive innovations in the transportation sector.

Mobile devices are at the core of most new ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems).

The Mobile internet allows a series of disruptive services ("Disruptive innovations") which have also created new markets. This kind of applications are growing at a rapid pace effectively tying the Web 2.0 with smartphones and creating a type of services that use mobility, satellite data and at the same time are easy, immediate and ubiquitous use.

Some of the main forces that drive the deployment of such applications are: the spread of mobile internet, the use of satellite data, social networks, the creation of user-generated content and the new generation of connected and autonomous vehicles.

This workshop aims to aggregate state-of-the-art techniques addressing mobile systems and applications applied to traffic management and safety, smart vehicles and smart roads.

MOBITraffic 2018 will be held in conjunction with the Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing Conference (MobiSPC2018) in Gran Canaria, Spain August 13th-15th, 2018.


The workshop invites original research work that are relevant to the road transportation sector. In this respect, it will focus on any mobile system that can be applied in: transport modeling and control, planning and operation as well as innovative solutions. The following list suggests possible but not exclusive issues:


  • Mobile systems for traffic control and management
  • Mobile systems as a source of information for traffic flow modeling
  • Mobile systems and vehicle routing and route planning
  • Mobile systems and road and modal choice
  • Mobile systems applied to traffic system optimization and travel behavior
  • Mobile systems applied to energy consumption and emission modeling
  • Mobile systems applied to travel time reliability and wider economic benefits
  • Mobile systems applied to city logistics


  • Mobile systems applied to urban public transport planning and operation
  • Mobile systems applied to transportation planning and traffic engineering
  • Mobile systems applied to road safety
  • Mobile systems applied to traveler information systems and multi-modal transportation
  • Mobile systems in automatic data collection methods and survey applications


  • Mobile systems and autonomous vehicle system applications
  • Mobile systems and safety aspects of autonomous driving
  • Mobile systems in advanced vehicular communication technologies and cooperative ITS
  • Mobile systems in shared mobility
  • Mobile systems in urban mobility
  • Mobile systems and big data in traffic systems
  • Mobile systems in smart cities
