Special Issue on: "Heavy Vehicle Systems in Real-Time Applications"

Guest Editor:
Dr. Gustavo Ramirez, De Cauca University, Colombia

Heavy vehicle systems play an important role in the transportation system for ensuring the coordination between vehicles and also in eliminating accidents. Today’s society and future societies are in need of real-time applications. This special issue will concentrate on the various policies and decisions for improving the vehicle system process in the real-time applications. Thus we invite different reviews, management reports, case studies, development methodologies, techniques analysis surveys, summaries and experimental reports from researches, engineers and industrialists.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Traffic signal identification
  • Passing traffic information in wireless communication
  • Anomalies detection system
  • Car-to-tank vehicle identification system
  • Assessing the transport risk and related mitigation factor
  • Train traveling tracking system
  • Vehicle number plant detection system
  • Collision detection system in transport
  • Heavy vehicle suspension analysis
  • Drug detection evaluation in the vehicle system
  • Optimisation techniques for vehicle abnormality recognition system
  • Machine learning techniques for transport analysing process
  • Structure analysing for van trailer floor assessment
  • Suspension of the vehicle wheel
  • Guide way for usage of traffic rules
  • Frequency analysing for wheel load signal estimation process
