CIVTS 2011

2011 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Vehicles and Transportation Systems

The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for participants from industry, academic, and non-profit organizations to exchange innovative ideas on intelligent vehicles, their systems, and related manufacturing processes. We welcome papers from all areas of computational intelligence demonstrating applications of theoretical advances to modern and future vehicles and vehicular systems (engine, transmissions, actuators, sensors, networks, communications, interfaces, etc.) and related manufacturing technologies. Although the focus of the symposium is on the application aspects of CI, papers describing simulation-only results are also solicited.


Topics include but are not limited to theoretical and practical contributions of computational intelligence to the following areas for vehicles and vehicular systems:

  • Application to automotive, aerospace, marine, military, and other (mining industry, locomotives, etc.) vehicles
  • Intelligent control
  • On-board / off-board / remote diagnostics and prognostics
  • Fault mitigation and recovery
  • Safety systems
  • Infotainment systems
  • Navigation systems / Electronic horizon
  • Human Machine Interfaces
  • Advisory Systems
  • Attributes and assessment of intelligence in intelligent vehicles
  • Autonomous and semi-autonomous driving
  • Intelligent transportation systems
  • Vehicle manufacturing processes
  • Other vehicle applications
