Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

Special Session Scope

Digital systems in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are becoming increasingly complex. New applications for these ITS have emerged to cope with societal needs and to ensure driver and passenger safety. Applications such as Autonomous cars, Vehicle-to-X (V2X) communications, in-vehicle infotainment, and assistance for elderly and disabled drivers require powerful processing and communication capabilities. Moreover, modern transport tools play a leading role in strategically worldwide projects such as green and sustainable mobility in future smart cities and smart roads. In this context, system safety and security are becoming increasingly relevant as humans are progressively ruled out from the decision/control loop of intelligent, and learning-enabled machines. In particular, the technical foundations and assumptions on which traditional system engineering principles are based are inadequate for systems in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms, in particular Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, are interacting with the physical world at increasingly higher levels of autonomy.

The special session “Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)” is addressing all technological and methodological aspects related to ITS. Papers on any of the following and related topics can be submitted to the special session:

  • System architecture and software design for efficient, safe, green and autonomous vehicles.
  • Emerging technologies enabling intelligent connected vehicles (cars, drones, and aircrafts).
  • Hardware and software design for ITS based on Multicore, FPGA, GPU and heterogeneous architectures.
  • Hardware and software solutions for run-time system management, power management, diagnostics and self-adaptation.
  • Machine and Deep Learning for transportation and space applications: Hardware accelerators, GPU, Multi-cores, etc.
  • Safe human-machine interaction in automated decision-making systems.
  • Safety in AI-based system architectures.
  • Safety and security assessment and detection of security threats and vulnerabilities.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts via EasyChair web service at web page Each manuscript should include the complete paper text, all illustrations, and references. The manuscript should conform to the IEEE format: single-spaced, double column, US letter page size, 10-point size Times Roman font, up to 8 pages. In order to conduct a blind review, no indication of the authors' names should appear in the manuscript, references included.

CPS, Conference Publishing Services, publishes the (ISI indexed) DSD Proceedings, available worldwide through the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Extended versions of selected best papers will be published in a special issue of the ISI indexed “Microprocessors and Microsystems: Embedded Hardware Design” Elsevier journal.
