Control, Analysis, and Modeling of Vehicular Systems

Call for Papers

The number of automatic processes applied to vehicles and transportation systems has increased dramatically due to the urge of environmental-friendly and autonomous transportation. As technology advances, more complicated mathematical problems have to be solved in order to satisfy the increasing astringent expectations on safety, reliability, and performance of vehicular systems.

This special issue is focused on recent advances in control, analysis, and modeling of vehicular and transportation systems with special emphasis on the mathematical problems involving any stage of vehicle operation. New trends in techniques and theories are particularly welcome as well as papers focused on computational techniques applied to modeling or operation. The special issue will become an international forum for researchers to summarize the most recent developments and ideas in the field, with a special emphasis given to the theoretical evidence of reliability of the application. Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions and reviews for this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced driver assistance systems
  • Visual servoing and artificial vision for vehicles
  • Augmented reality for vehicles
  • Vehicle coordination and traffic control
  • Intelligent systems and pattern recognition
  • Multiagent systems in transportation
  • Vehicular communication systems
  • New hardware and software developments
  • Fault detection and diagnosis
  • Optimization in vehicular and transportation systems
  • New trends in power and propulsion systems
  • Energy management strategies for hybrid and electric vehicles
  • Computational techniques in modeling and operation
  • Numerical methods for operation improving and modeling
