Information sharing in sustainable value chain network (SVCN): Innovative technology for transportation in cities

Research output: Contribution to ConferenceAbstract

Abstract

A lack of information and understanding of transportation has a major role in most cities. Improving such information is important for information sharing in sustainable value chain network (SVCN) of transportation in these cities. The phenomenon of information sharing is one of the key subjects to be enabled by effective Information and Communications Technology (ICT) technologies such as Internet-of-Things (IoT) (Lindholm, 2010; Mirzabeiki, 2013; Andersson and Mattsson, 2015). Optimising the transportation activities with innovative ICT is considering smart solutions to support freight flow in urban cities due
to the complexity of the processes taking place in transport systems and often conflicting expectations of stakeholders (Tachizawa et al., 2015). In fact, there are a great number of initiatives which are very close as for their objectives but they do not have a common basis like standards, conceptions and strategies (Vovk, 2016).
Since 2000, more than 40 different projects on smart transportation have been initiated in Europe (Festag, 2014; Vovk, 2016). Nowadays, smart transportation of IoT includes not only a great variety of information but thousands of other systems using data to make intelligent transport-related decisions (Uden and He, 2017). IoT technologies guarantee economic benefits as chain actors will be able to share valuable information and make more reasonable decisions to reduce transportation time and transportation expenditures and to also reduce the impact of transportation on the society and environment (Haddud et al., 2017). With visions from a multi-disciplinary perspective, the IoT has become the common paradigm of modern ICT area by enabling innovative applications in nearly all sectors of economy (Haddud et al., 2017). However, relatively little attention has been paid to the
information sharing between actors enabled by IoT for smart transportation along the SVCN (Andersson and Mattsson, 2015; Uden and He, 2017). Thus, this research aims to explore the high-order themes to information sharing in SVCN with a focus on the applications of IoT as a key enabling ICT innovative technology from the perception of expert community.
