Special Issue Information
Modern radio access technologies have the potential to greatly improve the autonomous driving experience. Autonomous vehicles must be capable of several different modes of communication, so they can interact with their environment, and will require reliable, robust, and secure networks. Simply put, wireless technologies, including cellular and Wi-Fi networks, will undoubtedly play a vital role in the future of autonomous vehicles, promising high-speed data rates and low latencies for a variety of autonomous driving scenarios. Dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) (based on IEEE 802.11p) and cellular V2X (C-V2X) are two contemporary technologies that are capable of supporting vehicular applications. Moreover, evolutions of both or these technologies, namely IEEE 802.11bd for the DSRC and NR-V2X for C-V2X, are currently under constant development and refinement in order to support advanced vehicular applications characterized by high reliability, low latency, and high throughput requirements. Unfortunately, along with the rise of these radio access technologies, new security and privacy threats are being introduced. This Special Issue aims to convene state-of-the-art research in the area and help in proposing and examining advanced communication technologies for connected and autonomous vehicles.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Vehicular communications with emphasis on security and privacy;
- Advanced security technologies and applications in V2X;
- Security and privacy threats in vehicular communication technologies;
- Security considerations in V2X communications;
- Security and privacy issues in C-V2X, NR-V2X, 802.11p, 802.11bd communications;
- Security and privacy issues in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications;
- Secure edge computing for V2X;
- Intrusion detection and misbehavior detection in CAVs.

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. Electronics 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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
