Call for Papers: SAE International Journal of Connected and Automated Vehicles

Special Issue on Infrastructure Connectivity: Applied Research, Innovative Applications, and Best Practices

Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-anything (V2X) technologies provide a transformational platform to improve mobility, safety, equity, and environmental quality on our roadways.  In order to achieve the societal gains promised by vehicular automation, communication between vehicles and their environments is paramount.  In particular, smart infrastructure systems will provide key information to vehicles on the roadway, spanning from human-driven vehicles to fully automated vehicles.  This special issue will spotlight the latest advancements in infrastructure connectivity by researchers and practitioners in industry, the public sector, and academia.

The SAE International Journal of Connected and Automated Vehicles and this special issue provide a
peer-reviewed platform for both industry and academia to present new research and developments in the
field of infrastructure connectivity that will shape the future of advanced mobility.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel connected vehicle standard definitions
  • Connected vehicle corridors including multiple signalized intersections for purposes of transit signal priority or other mobility applications
  • Vehicle-to-pedestrian and/or vehicle-to-bicycle research and/or applications
  • Connected infrastructure deployments and/or research at locations other than signalized intersections
  • Research/applications using messages defined in SAE J2735 (V2X Communications Message Set Dictionary)
  • Data science techniques for processing CV infrastructure data
  • CV infrastructure data as an input to AV systems / ADAS
  • V2I or I2V algorithms for safety applications
  • C-V2X integration
  • V2I methods for rural settings
  • SCMS, blockchain, or similar data protocols to protect message integrity and privacy
  • Edge computing with CV infrastructure
  • AI applications of CV infrastructure data
  • CV message simulation
  • CV message transmission quality (e.g., range analysis, message latency, validation/verification)
