Hsien-Hsin Sean Lee, TSMC

Submission deadline: July 14, 2017
Author notification: August 31, 2017
Revised papers due: Sept 22, 2017
Publication: Jan/Feb 2018

The recent growth in computing capability has led to a surge of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features in modern automobiles that improve both the safety and driving experience. Machine learning continues to fuel advancements in recognition and computer vision technology that will eventually lead to autonomous vehicles. These autonomous vehicles will greatly decrease the number of collisions but will require even more computing and communication devices to be deployed in each vehicle. This special issue of IEEE Micro will explore novel design and emerging computing technologies for automotive applications to improve the performance, usability, and real-time data processing capability for future vehicles. This issue will also explore technologies to guarantee reliable and secure operations of future vehicles to enable autonomous driving.

Topics of interest include:
– Computer vision and image processing architecture
– Recognition and learning accelerator-based architecture
– Architectural support for ISO26262 compliance
– Architectural support for design for operational and thermal reliability
– Fault-hardened microarchitecture and system architecture
– Security-proof architecture and intrusion detection systems for automotive
– Architectures for real-time heterogeneous systems
– Architectures for real-time path planning
– Systems and architectures for vehicle communication systems
– Autonomous driving and data service platform architectures

Log in to and submit your manuscript. Acceptable file formats are Microsoft Word document and PDF. Please direct ScholarOne questions to the IEEE Micro magazine assistant ( Manuscripts should not exceed 5,000 words, including a maximum of 12 references, with each average-sized figure counting as 250 words. Please include all figures and tables, as well as a cover page with author contact information (name, postal address, phone, fax, and email address) and a 200-word abstract. Accepted articles will be edited for structure, style, clarity, and readability. For more information, please visit the IEEE Micro author guidelines. Submitted manuscripts must not have been previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere, and all manuscripts must be cleared for publication. All conference papers must have at least 30 percent new content compared to the original.
