Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The exploration of vehicle–road collaborative automatic driving systems focuses on developing advanced technologies that enable vehicles to communicate and cooperate with the road infrastructure. These systems aim to enhance safety, efficiency, accessibility, infrastructure optimization, environmental sustainability, and the overall driving experience. The prospect and importance of vehicle–road collaborative autonomous driving systems are significant and hold numerous benefits for the future of transportation. The ongoing research, development, and deployment of these systems showcase immense potential to revolutionize transportation and enhance our daily lives.

Overall, the exploration of vehicle–road collaborative automatic driving systems aims to create a harmonious interaction between vehicles and the road environment, leveraging technology to enhance safety, efficiency, and sustainability on our roads.

This Special Issue aims to collect research on vehicle–road collaborative autonomous driving systems, including but not limited to: Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication; Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communication; Sensor Fusion and Perception; Cooperative Control and Planning; and Infrastructure Support. We welcome contributions from scholars in the relevant fields.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
