Vehicles have been majorly used for transportation in the last century. With the proliferation of onboard sensing, computing, communication, storage, and battery capabilities, we envision that future connected intelligent vehicles (CIVs) will be serving as a mobile computing platform in addition to their conventional transportation role for the next century, supporting many next-generation services (e.g., mobility-as-a-service, fuel efficiency optimization, high-definition (HD) map generation, to name a few). These software-based services fuel the CIV market – The automotive edge computing consortium (AECC) predicts that every new vehicle (with a total number of up to 400 million) will be connected by 2025, which will result in 50% of national vehicles on the road with connected features.
Vehicle Computing (VC) refers to the enabling technologies that allow computing to be performed on CIVs, where the CIV serves as a computation platform for diverse edge-enabled services. Due to the shortage of synergy research from interdisciplinary domains, the new era of vehicle computing also poses challenges to the complex interaction of many relevant research areas, which are traditionally orthogonal and developed in parallel to each other. The foreseen high impacts and the multidisciplinary nature call for special attention and contemplation from researchers, industries, governments, and the related professional communities. This special issue aims to present state-of-the-art contributions and future directions from experts in different areas and domains of vehicle computing.
This special issue calls for research on various issues and solutions that can support vehicle computing. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Edge-based Mapping and Localization
- Hardware architecture for emerging CIV applications
- Hardware/software/control co-optimization
- ML-driven SLAM algorithms
- Edge data analytics for CIVs
- CIV security and resilient computing systems
- CIV computing and interface standards
- CIV simulation environment and real-world testbeds
- Machine Learning system optimization for CIVs
- Vehicle-edge-cloud multilayer infrastructure
- Wireless communication infrastructure for CIVs
- Smart transportation and charging infrastructure
- Electrification and battery management
- Sustainable mobility solutions
