Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Most automobile companies and many AI companies, including semiconductor companies, are working on the development of autonomous vehicles based on EVs. Especially sharing service companies such as Uber, Lyft, Google and many others are interested in the autonomous operation of EVs.

In the near future, autonomous vehicles with EVs will be popular for not only sharing service companies but also personal mobility, because EVs need less maintenance and are more convenient than internal combustion engine vehicles.

We propose that this Special Issue will cover all areas of autonomous driving subsystems and their components or sensors such as cameras, laser scanners, radars, IMU, GPS, and not only hardware but also software and related algorithms. Artificial intelligence and big data will also be very important technologies for autonomous driving.

Any topic regarding autonomous driving is welcome in this Special Issue.

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. World Electric Vehicle Journal is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 300 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.
