Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue welcomes the submission of new research and review articles related to automated and autonomous ground vehicles. The emphasis is on bridging critical gaps leading to real-world implementation, “making the dream a reality” in the next few years. The Special Issue is open to a wide range of topics on vehicle automation: guidance and control, sensor technology, sensor systems, redundancy and data security, collision avoidance, safety, V2X communications, etc. Contributions relating to overall system design and operation are also of interest, including niche applications such as self-parking, racing, freight operations, construction vehicles, etc.
