Embedded Control Systems (ECS) constitute the key enabling technology for autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. The aim is to allow a wide range of intelligent features, relating to the operation perception, situation reasoning, action planning and actuation of physical processes and human behaviors, through the integration of advanced functions, embedded software and hardware. Many of these intelligent features are, however, safety or mission critical, as the errors can result in system failures with unreasonable risks. This calls on the one hand for effective engineering methods and tools for correct by construction, verification and validation; and, on the other hand, for advanced technologies for observing and analyzing various actual operational feedbacks.
This Special Issue focuses on the modeling, design, analysis and management of ECS for Automated Driving (AD) vehicles. We solicit high-quality articles presenting original and unpublished results of conceptual, theoretical, and empirical research relating to system specifications, quality management, safety and reliability engineering. We also especially welcome industrial insights, experiences and practices regarding post-deployment-time data collection and analysis for safety certification, product-line and lifecycle management.

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. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
