Synopses & Reviews
The Series in Intelligent Systems publishes titles that cover state of the art knowledge and the latest advances in research and development in intelligent systems. Its scope includes theoretical studies, design methods, and real-world implementations and applications. The Series publishes titles in three core sub-topic areas: Intelligent Automation, Intelligent Transportation Systems, and Intelligent Computing. Titles focus on professional and academic reference works and handbooks. The readership for the series is broad, reflecting the wide range of intelligent systems interest and application, but focuses on engineering (in particular automation, control, mechatronics, robotics, transportation, automotive, aerospace), electronics and electronic design, and computer science.
Advances in Intelligent Vehicles embraces recent advancement of research and advanced development in intelligent vehicle technologies which enhance the safety, reliability, and performance of vehicles and vehicular networks and systems. Intelligent vehicles consist of semi-autonomous or autonomous driving systems that are controlled based on multiple sensors and senor networks in a complex driving environment with high-level interactions between vehicles and infrastructure. The overall system of intelligent vehicles can be viewed as a physical-cyber system which is comprised of vehicles/components and sensing devices (manmade physical systems) and control, communication and computation elements (cyber system). The purpose of this book is to provide researchers and engineers with up to date research results and state-of-the art technologies in the area of intelligent vehicles and transportation systems.
