Recently the second part of the special issue on "Smart Vehicle Technologies" appeared in the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. The issue was jointly edited by John H.L. Hansen, Kazuya Takeda, Sanjeev M. Naik, Mohan M. Trivedi, Gerhard Schmidt, Yingying (Jennifer) Chen, and Wade Trappe.
We were pretty happy to convince a large group of authors to write very interesting contributions. Since the contributions were too much for a single issue, the publishers agreed to do a double issue. Our introduction for the special issue can be found here.
