IJVAS is an established international authoritative reference in the field of vehicle autonomous systems research and development. Such systems aim to increase accident avoidance and road capacity, improve the travel experience by relieving occupants of driving/navigation chores, reduce total vehicle numbers and eliminate some of the services/infrastructure associated with motoring today


 Topics covered include

  • Active safety and driver-assistance systems
  • Vehicle and chassis dynamics and controls
  • Vehicle electronics, electrification and mechatronics
  • Vehicular wireless communications and networks
  • Object sensing and detection; sensor fusion
  • Intelligent vehicle and transport systems
  • Vehicle navigation, motion and trajectory planning
  • Multi-vehicle coordination and vehicle platooning

More on this journal...

IJVAS aims to investigate: how vehicle autonomous systems contribute to the high and safe performance, as well as the reliability and cost effectiveness of vehicles in an ecologically friendly environment; how the systems contribute to the driver comfort and reduce his/her working load during driving; and how the systems are designed and accepted by the driver (the customer).


Professionals, academics, researchers, and managers.


IJVAS publishes original papers, review papers, case studies, conference reports, briefs and reports and news, book reviews and notes.Commentaries on papers and reports published in IJVAS are encouraged. Authors will have the opportunity to respond to the commentary on their work before the entire treatment is published. Special Issues devoted to important topics in vehicle autonomous systems and related topics, will be published occasionally.
