Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, vehicles have become one of the most common examples in the area of ICT convergence applications and services. In simple terms, this means that a vehicle system is composed of various internet and communication technologies such as in-vehicle networking, wireless communications like 4G/LTE, 5G, 802.11x, and Bluetooth that enables Internet access, including cloud and V2X communications (Vehicle to Everything) such as Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle to Pedestrian (V2P) Vehicle to Devices (V2D), Vehicle to Grid (V2G), and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I). In addition, in-vehicle system performance and user-provided services are ever-advancing by adopting artificial intelligence technologies with deep learning methods. They offer a variety of improved features that allow vehicles to inter-work with the outside world based on high-speed and high-capacity internet technology being accelerated by 5G. At the same time, potential cybersecurity threats on vehicle systems and networks are rapidly growing, such as user privacy and payment information disclosure, unauthorized vehicle software updates, stealing smart keys/passwords, vehicle communication protocol forgery and injection, DoS/DDoS, physical jamming, etc. In order to provide more secure and reliable services for vehicles, both security and safety should be carefully considered.

The objective of this Special Issue is to focus on the technical contribution, analysis, design, performance simulation, and implementation of in-vehicle networking, autonomous network security for the internet of things/vehicles, safety detection, safety, and security on the virtualized automotive platform.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Automotive networking;
  • In-vehicle network security;
  • Autonomous vehicle security;
  • V2X applications and services for security;
  • Internet of Things/Vehicles;
  • Industrial Internet of Things for vehicle security;
  • Safety detection and fault management;
  • Security and safety on an automotive virtualized platform;
  • Performance and fault simulation;
  • Platform virtualization.

A Reactive and On-Chip Sensor Circuit for NBTI and PBTI Resilient SRAM Design

Process Variation (PV), Bias Temperature Instability (BTI) and Time-Dependent Dielectric Breakdown (TDDB) are the critical factors that affect the reliability of semiconductor chip design. They cause the system to be unstable and increase the soft error rate. In this paper, a compact on-chip degradation technique using runtime leakage current monitoring has been proposed. The proposed sensor-based adaptive technique compensates for the variation due to PV and aging using the body-bias-voltage-generator circuit. Simulation experiments for three and ten-year stress have been performed. Simulation results proved the superiority of the proposed sensor which provides 33% (up to 0.75 V) more output voltage and 98% sensitivity at 1 V supply voltage compared to the state-of-the-art sensor. The proposed technique mitigates up to 80% PV and BTI effects in SRAM compared to the state-of-the-art techniques. Full article
