With advances in automated and connected driving, secure communication is increasingly becoming a safety-critical function. Injection of manipulated radio messages into traffic can cause severe accidents in the foreseeable future, and can currently be achieved without having to manipulate on-board vehicle systems directly, for example by hijacking cell phones instead and using these as senders. Thereby, large-scale attacks on vehicles can be executed remotely, and target relatively vulnerable devices. To mitigate remaining vulnerabilities in current automotive security architectures, this paper proposes a secondary communication channel using vehicle head and taillights. Advances in communication, controls and embedded systems now pave the way for Connected and Autonomous vehicles (CAVs), which use sensors and software to control, navigate and drive the vehicle without any human intervention, to a predetermined destination. Autonomous vehicles help in increasing car utilisation by 5%-75% thus reducing CO2 emissions also helps in saving fuel and time, reducing congestion, parking utilisation and even from accidents. Autonomous vehicles with Optical imaging and sensing technologies incorporate safety systems such as lane departure warning systems, sign detection systems, parking assistance, collision avoidance and accident recorders. Radars, Lidars, sensors and cameras are the key components in the development of self-driving cars. Radars lag in detection of the exact size and shape of an object, whereas lidar, though more accurate than radar, its detection distance is critical. Lidars help in generating 3D point maps around the vehicle. Thus, these components provide the necessary information about the environment around the vehicle in real time.  

This special issue aims to present the recent advances in Wireless communications in optical imaging and sensing for autonomous vehicles. This is an opportunity to gather researchers in developing fundamental principles to discuss and share original research works and practical experiences.
