Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will explore how people and automated vehicles (AVs) will work together as technology continues to change quickly. Vehicles are becoming more focused on people and their needs; thus, it is important to study innovative human-centered approaches in shaping different mobility solutions. Special attention will be paid to how humans and machines communicate and collaborate with each other in cars and how researchers are working to make sure that technology helps people stay in control when they are driving. Novel ADAS adapting to human needs and in-cabin monitoring tools are a good example of such technologies. This Special Issue will also provide insights into what could happen with the implementation of vehicles with high levels of automation, stressing how important it is to mix technology with features that people need for safety and comfort. In this sense, the whole human–vehicle collaboration spectrum will be addressed, not only considering drivers but also passengers, teleoperators, and interactions between the vehicle and other road users.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
