A special issue of Inventions (ISSN 2411-5134). This special issue belongs to the section "Inventions and Innovation in Electrical Engineering/Energy/Communications".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2017)
In the 1990s, there were only 52 million vehicles produced worldwide. By 2015, over 90 million have been produced because of strengthening economies and the increase in individuals’ desire for personal mobility throughout the world. Modern automobiles are at least 10 times cleaner and twice as fuel efficient as the vehicles produced in the 1970s. These advancements were mostly due to advanced control systems used. Present vehicles are safer, more comfortable, and have better manuverability. It is expected that next generation vehicles will be more autonomous, with even better performance in every aspect, all enabled by modern guidance and control systems and design techniques.
From a methodological perspective, we are interested in works that go beyond traditional approaches, encapsulating, but not limited to, the following topics:
- New inventions related to vehicle safety
- New inventions toward the improvement of vehicle handling
- New inventions toward renewable energy in electric vehicles
- New inventions for the realization of autonomous vehicles
- New inventions for the control of hybrid vehicles
