Special Issue in Inventions: Quadrotor UAV with Advanced Applications
In recent decades, electronic brake control systems have been adopted as standard equipment even for the most inexpensive cars or trucks. Today, most newly-produced vehicles benefit from the optimized braking, enhanced acceleration, improved stability and intelligent functions that these systems provide. In practice, participants in system-level design considerations, vehicle interface requirements, and performance compromises have to be addressed. The physical differences of actuators for braking enjoin the use of different control schemes so as to be able to exploit their characteristics. The design of such systems forms the core of this Special Issue. Potential authors are encouraged to present different approaches in terms of either performance or of the structural properties of the closed-loop system with the aim of providing a comprehensive treatment of active vehicle braking control from a wider perspective linked to both advanced academic research and industrial reality. Other problems closely related to the design of braking control systems are also welcome.
The themes shall include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Brake-by-wire control;
- Wheel slip estimation and its relationship with braking control design;
- Estimation of tire-road friction;
- Direct estimation of tire-road contact forces via intire sensors;
- Novel anti-lock braking system (ABS) design;
- Regenerative braking control strategy for electric vehicles;
- Control-oriented models of braking dynamics;
- AI based braking control for smart vehicles;
- Novel traction control (TCS) and electronic stability control (ESC);
- Dynamic rear proportioning brake system;
- Intelligent control for brake systems

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Actuators is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
