Editors: Nicu Bizon, Lucian Dascalescu and Naser Mahdavi Tabatabaei (Faculty of Electronics, Communication and Computers, University of Pitesti, Romania)
Book Description:
This is the first comprehensive book on the autonomous vehicles as a part of the smart transportation systems. It was written by scientists and engineers who had been actively contributing to the development of technical knowledge in this field. The authors tried to cover both the theoretical background and the multitude of practical issues related to either commercially-available or laboratory-validated vehicular technologies.
The book will be invaluable not only for engineers directly concerned with the development of autonomous vehicles, but also to those who are interested in various fields that overlap with these specific topics: power engineering, electrical drives, control systems, sensors and actuators and artificial intelligence. Technical executives concerned with intelligent transportation systems will also find it timely and important. (Imprint: Nova)
