Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Autonomous vehicle technology is continuing to advance, bringing significant benefits to humanity in terms of traffic congestion reduction, safety enhancements, stress-free travel, fuel cost savings, pollutant emission reduction, etc., and it is widely seen as the future of motorized mobility. This Topic is seeking high-quality original contributions, soliciting high-level technical papers addressing the main research challenges related to autonomous vehicles. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Sensing and control for autonomous vehicles; 
  • Mapping and localization for autonomous vehicles; 
  • Path planning for autonomous vehicles; 
  • Computer vision for autonomous vehicles; 
  • AI-based auto-driving; 
  • Sensor fusion in autonomous vehicles; 
  • 5G for autonomous vehicles; 
  • Risk management of autonomous vehicles; 
  • Automotive cybersecurity, liability, and privacy; 
  • Intelligent transportation systems; 
  • Human factors of automated driving; 
  • Driver behavior; 
  • Human–machine interface.
