    Scope

    The information age we are embracing is imposing great challenges to the
    Intelligent Vehicle Systems (IVS). Modern car drivers expect to be able to
    drive safely while exchanging information with the outside world. Vehicle
    safety technologies, such as collision warning, driver assistance and
    autonomous driving, as well as injury reduction in case of an accident are
    the basic concerns of intelligent vehicle systems. Information and
    connectivity is another essential aspect. Intelligent vehicle systems are
    supposed to be able to provide filtered information about local traffic
    conditions, navigation, and weather conditions and provide useful
    suggestions. With the help of Internet and telecommunication technologies,
    drivers can check emails, browsing Internet and even handle business
    without stepping out of the car. To meet the increasing demand for safety
    and connectivity, intelligent vehicle systems need to have stronger
    capability of understanding the environment, learning from the history, and
    making correct
    decisions with uncertain, partial or imprecise information.
    Soft Computing is an emerging field that consisting of complementary
    elements of Fuzzy Logic, Neural Computing, Evolutionary Computation,
    Machine Learning and Probabilistic Reasoning. Due to their strong learning
    and cognitive ability and good tolerance of uncertainty and imprecision,
    Soft Computing techniques have found wide applications in Intelligent
    Vehicle Systems. This Special Issue will be dedicated to the publication of
    the latest advancements in theory and application of Soft Computing
    techniques to intelligent vehicle systems. Topics may include but are not
    limited to:

    Adaptive Cruise Control
    Collision Avoidance and Obstacle Detection
    Driver Behavior Modeling and Monitoring
    Lane Detection and Tracking
    Optimization of Vehicle Safety Equipments
    In-Vehicle Navigation and Communication
    Human-Machine Systems for IVS
    Driver Information Systems
    Traffic Modeling and Control
