ICT Innovations in Future Smart Cars

Call for Papers

Information communication technology (ICT) is a key technology for developing smart cars, its usage in current vehicles is steadily progressing, and the related research issues are very popular and challenging, especially for future smart cars. Hence, we invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the ICT used in future smart cars. We are particularly interested in articles describing novel services or innovational technologies for future smart cars from sensor networks, electronic control units, vehicle safety systems, vehicle-to-infrastructure communications, vehicle-to-vehicle communications, on-board diagnostics, head-up display, and location-aware services. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Sensors and vehicular networks for smart cars
  • Embedded systems for smart cars
  • Intelligent vehicle safety systems
  • Dedicated short-range communications (DSRCs)
  • Wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVEs)
  • Geographic information systems for transportations
  • Intelligent applications for on-board diagnostics
  • Augmented reality for smart cars
