Special Issue Information
Current vehicles can already be considered to be connected devices, as many recent models are connected to external services, for info-tainment, security, comfort and maintenance purposes. Furthermore, direct interaction among vehicles, pedestrians and the road infrastructure, using various radio technologies, is expected, in the short term, using consolidated and field-proven technology. In parallel, the massive effort being made by many stakeholders towards automated driving, is mostly centered in the vehicles’ sensors, as no automated actions are currently made based on data received from other vehicles or from the road infrastructure. However, it is commonly accepted that inter-vehicle cooperation will significantly enhance the overall traffic performance, safety and comfort. Vehicular communication will also foster the integration of automated vehicles within the intelligent transportation ecosystems, with automated vehicles communicating and cooperating with legacy vehicles, trams, bicycles, etc.
Vehicular communications, automated driving and cooperating transportation systems are increasingly being considered not only as complementary technologies, but also as the foundations of forthcoming visionary applications of cooperative connected and automated mobility. To this end, regulatory entities, automotive OEMs, road operators, telecom operators and other stakeholders are converging to deploy large-scale infrastructures and field trials of cooperative intelligent transport systems to pave the way to cooperative, connected and automated vehicles.
The main aim of this Special Issue is to seek high-quality submissions that highlight recent breakthroughs in CCAM technologies and applications regarding safety, security aspects, new vehicular sensors, communication protocol, ultra-reliable and low-latency communications, distributed control algorithms. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Fault-tolerance techniques and devices for CCAM
- Safety assessment of CCAM
- Design methodologies for CCAM applications
- Security, privacy and trust issues
- Flexible network architectures for CCAM
- Smart sensors for CCAM
- 5G and CCAM (network slicing, ultra-reliable low-latency communications, etc.)
- Vehicular communications (DSRC, ITS-G5, C-V2X, LTE-V, etc.)
- Field trials and lessons learned

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. 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). 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.
