Special Issue Introduction

An autonomous vehicle (AV) is a moving robot with a navigation propulsion system and decision-making computer that can operate independently and perform necessary functions without any human intervention by sensing its surroundings. The main body can be modeled by Euler-Lagrange or semi Euler-Lagrange system with fully-actuated or under-actuated control. A general AV often carries a variety of equipment for control, sampling and surveying, such as computers, cameras and position sensors. The importance of AVs comes from the wide applications in spacecrafts, unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned vehicles, surface ships, submersibles, etc., that cover military activity, scientific exploration, civil rescue and other fields. The AV research involves navigation, perception, positioning, path planning, sensing, communication, pulse width modulation, control design, environmental security and other potential topics. Stability, accuracy, robustness, response speed, and safety are the decisive factors for the implementation of automatic driving. Some standard control strategies such as integral back-stepping, passive-based technique, Slotine-Li method, computed torque, variant structure, and reinforcement learning can be performed for different purposes. The research on AV has recently gained increasing popularity and innovative papers on or beyond the mentioned topics are expected to fill the literature gap by providing some new ideas, technologies, as well as new applications.
