Special Issue Information
Electrification, automation of vehicle control, digitalization and new mobility are the mega trends in automotive engineering and they are strongly connected to each other. Whereas many demonstrations for highly automated vehicles have been made worldwide, many challenges remain to bring automated vehicles on the market for private and commercial use.
The main challenges are: Reliable machine perception; accepted standards for vehicle approval and homologation; verification and validation of the functional safety especially at SAE level 3+ systems; legal and ethical implications; acceptance of vehicle automation by occupants and society; interaction between automated and human controlled vehicles in mixed traffic; human-machine-interaction and usability; manipulation, misuse and cyber-security; but also the system costs for hard- and software and development effort.
This special issue deals with recent advances related to the technological aspects of the aforementioned challenges, papers are welcomed for:
- Machine perception for SAE L3+ driving automation;
- Trajectory planning and decision making in complex traffic situations;
- X-by-Wire system components;
- Verification and validation of SAE L3+ systems;
- Misuse, manipulation and cybersecurity;
- Human-machine-interaction, driver monitoring and driver intention recognition;
- Road infrastructure measures for introduction of SAE L3+ systems;
- Solutions for interactions of vehicles human and machine controlled in mixed traffic.

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. Energies 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 2200 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.
