Objectives and Topics
With the recent interest of all major players in the automotive industry, the time when intelligent vehicles begin to drive autonomously seems to be right around the corner. This implies a boost in the development on novel algorithms, techniques and methodologies with direct application not only to Autonomous Driving but also to advanced Driver Assistance Systems. This special issue will cover all these advances.
The expected topics include, but are not limited to the following:
Vision, lidar and radar perception;
Sensor calibration-Multimodal sensor fusion;
Perception in challenging conditions;
Software architectures for autonomous vehicles;
Special sensors for autonomous navigation;
Driver-vehicle interaction and assisted driving;
Navigation, motion planning and maneuvering;
Vehicle dynamics and control;
Outdoors SLAM and Visual Odometry;
Heads up Display for Vehicle to Driver Communication;
Augmented Reality in DAS-V2V and V2I communications.
