Special Issue Information
Internet of Vehicles (IoV), as one of the utmost important parts of a smart city, is a promising paradigm that allows intelligent vehicles to interact with drivers, environments and road-side units. IoV is envisioned to improve the road safety and provide in-car entertainment and on-board Internet services, such as social networking, online media streaming, online navigation and real-time traffic report acquisition.
Relying on the emergence of 6G, which is characterized by higher bandwidth and lower latency, IoV will be allowed to provide more accurate, real-time, and customized services for vehicle networks in the future. However, with the explosively increasing number of IoV devices (e.g., smart vehicles, road-side units, sensors, ICT infrastructures), the operation and management efficiency of IoV systems face unprecedented challenges in such a new era. Moreover, autonomous driving, as a key enabling technology of IoV, is rapidly developing and is expected to achieve Level 4/5 very recently. These prompt the new evolution of IoV with significant demands on computing, communication and control infrastructures/resources, which are inherently limited, and thus a system-wide optimization becomes imperative and necessary. In addition, through integration with advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI), IoV could contribute to the establishment of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) by achieving full automation, data-driven decision making and ultra-high reliability. Motivated by these requirements, a variety of corresponding communication, computing and control technologies are recently developed.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to present emerging communication, computing and control technologies for IoV. The editorial board invites academic researchers and industrial experts to submit insightful and revolutionary contributions in the form of research and review articles focusing on, but not limited to, the following potential topics:
- IoV architecture and system design;
- IoV applications and smart transportations;
- Communication technologies and protocols for IoV;
- Resource optimization/scheduling and QoS guarantee for IoV;
- Cloud/edge/fog computing enabled IoV;
- Machine learning, deep learning and federated learning for IoV;
- IoV-based intelligent traffic signal control;
- IoV-based traffic management and congestion control;
- Autonomous driving techniques for IoV;
- Data-driven intelligent transportation systems (ITS);
- Signal sensing, processing, transmission techniques for IoV;
- Intelligent control techniques;
- Computer vision and pattern recognition for IoV;
- Camera/Radar/Lidar-based tracking and detection 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. 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).
