Purpose: The aim of this paper is to analyze the relationship between the use of Logistics 4.0 tools and a change in the behavior of drivers to more ecological and safer. We analyze the social acceptance of the intelligent tools implemented in vehicles, and identify a possible research gap in this area. Design/Methodology/Approach: In this article, a systematic review is used for the quantitative and qualitative assessment of publications available in two digital databases – WoS and Scopus. The review allows verifying whether there is a significant research gap within the analyzed problem. Findings: In the article, is indicated that the digital databases of publications contain only 26 full-text papers relating to the analyzed research problem, which confirms the hypothesis of the existence of a research gap. Practical Implications: The practical implications of this publication include the need to refine research on the social aspect and the readiness of drivers to implement and use intelligent transport systems with benefits for reduction of the environmental impact and increased safety. Originality/Value: The importance of the Smart City tools and their use as part of increasing the safety and environmental friendliness of driving is a key factor in changing driver behavior. The pro-ecological policy of the European Union imposes a change in the style of driving. Only 26 related publications have been identified, thus this paper contributes to the literature by proving in-depth analysis of the problem under consideration.
