The aim of this Special Issue is to contribute to the state-of-the-art and to introduce current developments concerning modern vehicles, i.e., sensors and applications in measuring and automation control systems, power management systems, and artificial intelligence-based systems. We encourage potential authors to submit contributions of original research, novel developments, and substantial experimental works concerning road, robotic, and intelligent vehicles.
In recent years, different sensing technologies have been implemented in the automotive industry. Vehicular electric power systems and energy management are still improving. Electric motors have been applied to electric and hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV). Energy recovery systems that can harvest energy from the motion of a vehicle are still being developed. Additionally, robotic and intelligent vehicles are used in many sensing applications. There is a need to use new algorithms as well as LiDAR, radar, video, thermal imaging devices, and applications. Data are often derived from disparate sources. Therefore, sensor fusion and intelligence deployment are needed. Driving systems have become highly automated. Artificial intelligence algorithms are implemented in autonomous vehicles. Using telemetry for the diagnostic and maintenance of vehicles is also important. Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles are getting more and more popular.
The following are some examples of topics of interest for this issue:
- Robotic and automotive sensors
- Drone-based sensor platforms
- Sensors and applications in measuring and automation control systems
- Sensor and information fusion
- Electric and hybrid vehicles
- Autonomous/intelligent robotic vehicles
- Energy harvesting for automotive applications
- Solar power management systems
- Robotics and machine learning (ML)
- Artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles
- Predictive maintenance of vehicles in smart cities
- Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) methodology, algorithms, and devices (application of LiDAR, Radar, Video, Thermovision)
- Industrial applications

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 papers will be 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. Sensors 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). 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.
