Special issue objective:
Autonomous driving and navigation is a major research issue which will 
affect our lives in the near future. Among the many application areas 
that robotics is addressing, transportation of people and goods seems to 
be a domain that will dramatically benefit from advances in robotics and 
automation. The purpose of this special issue is to address topics 
related to the challenging problems of autonomous and cooperative 
driving for road and urban vehicles. Important issues include robust 
perception, control, complex and dynamic environment, system integration 
and safety.

Scope, description and more information
The scope of this special issue encompasses articles that address one or 
more of the aforementioned challenges of Perception and Navigation for 
Autonomous Vehicles. Particular topics of interest include:
. Perception and situation awareness (Road scene understanding, 
Pedestrian and vehicle detection, Localization, detection and tracking, 
Collision prediction and avoidance, Situation awareness, Integrity and 
safety, Semantic mapping)
. Dynamic environment (SLAM in dynamic environments, Real-time motion 
planning in dynamic environments)
. Autonomous systems (Control of autonomous vehicles, Cooperative vehicles,
Mobility systems of intelligent vehicles, Autonomous navigation)

The IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine is a unique technology 
publication which is peer-reviewed, readable and substantive and seeks 
to present new scientific results to the practicing engineer through a 
focus on working systems.

Authors are encouraged to write magazine-style articles (upto 6000 
words) rather than theoretical transaction-style papers.
See the "For authors" section for details
