Special Issue Information
The driverless car theme has become a key focus of the industrial and technological world scenes. Considered with trepidation rather than anxiety, driverless cars will alter human mobility. They will put a strain on various sectors, in particular, public administration, which will be required to form new regulations and to determine the liability levels of these vehicles. At the same time, considering that several significant players in the automotive industry have shown their interest in this type of vehicle by developing prototypes and testing them in many contexts, an additional boost in the development of innovative algorithms, systems, and methodologies is necessary with straight employment not only for autonomous driving but also for advanced driver assistance systems.
For this Special Issue of Sustainability, we invite authors to submit high-quality and unpublished papers that strive to resolve open technical problems and challenges typical of driverless cars. The principal purpose is to combine innovative methods efficiently, integrating performance evaluation and the comparison with existing solutions. Both theoretical and experimental studies for typical scenarios related to driverless cars are encouraged, as well as high-quality review and survey papers.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
- Vision, lidar and radar perception;
- Special sensors for autonomous navigation;
- Vehicle scene understanding;
- Sensor technologies for driverless cars;
- Wireless communications in connected vehicles;
- Cooperative driving;
- Vehicle navigation and localization systems;
- Perception in challenging conditions;
- Advanced driver assistance systems;
- Software architecture for autonomous vehicles;
- Assistive intelligent vehicles;
- Vehicle dynamics and control;
- Driver–vehicle interaction and assisted driving;
- Human factors and human–machine interactions.

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 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. Sustainability 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.
