Land transport represents the most important kind of transport for short and medium–long distances. It provides the transport and movement of people as well as goods from one location to another on land and includes road and rail transport. However, currently, land transport also ensures the transport of goods for long and very long distances across continents. Expansion of road transport has led to congested roads, traffic jams, and subsequently to a higher risk of traffic accidents. Considering, on one hand, the rising number of vehicles on roads and, on the other hand, the negative consequences of it leads to introduction of state-of-art technologies to transport means construction as well as to land transport infrastructure. Efforts of scientists, researchers, and engineers focused on the solution of problems related with an excessive number of vehicles on roads and needs for ever-increasing demand for transport of people and goods result in the implementation of neural networks to transport infrastructure and, as the highest level of it, in autonomous mobility.
In this Special Issue, we solicit high-quality original research manuscripts, which are focused on the presentation of results of the latest research in the field of the design, construction, and analysis of transport means, mainly road and railway vehicles to be used for improving autonomous mobility, current issues in neural network solutions for autonomous mobility, and problems and challenges related with application of neural networks in infrastructure for ensuring effective and safe autonomous mobility. We welcome theoretical and application manuscripts of high technical standards across various disciplines. We seek high-quality submissions of original research as well as review manuscripts on all aspects related to autonomous mobility and neural networks in vehicles and land transport resulting in practical applications.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Application of neural networks to land transport;
- Challenges in autonomous mobility;
- Advanced design of road and railway vehicles;
- Safety of transport;
- Application of artificial intelligence in vehicle construction;
- Application of artificial intelligence in land transport infrastructure;
- Risks related with artificial intelligence in land transport applications;
- Current solutions of safe and effective vehicles in term of environment;
- Autonomous mobility and its impact on social, industry, transport, and economic sectors;
- Others topics related with autonomous mobility.

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. Infrastructures 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.
