Manuscript Submission Opens for ASCE-ASME Journal of Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Systems

news story image

ASCE-ASME Journal of Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Systems is now accepting submissions for a Special Issue on Risk, Resilience and Reliability for Autonomous Vehicle Technologies: Trends, Techniques and Challenges ((SI Number: SI049B).

This special issue is aimed at gathering contributions that discuss new theoretical developments and advanced applications of risk, reliability and uncertainty assessment towards management of autonomous vehicle technologies. More specifically, papers discussing traditional deterministic, probabilistic, machine learning, and hybrid approaches to risk assessment are solicited across all lifecycle events of autonomous technologies. Interpretation of and insights gained from implementation of risk-informed frameworks are also encouraged at various levels of maturity and discussion from a philosophical and ethical standpoint.

An account of data needs and uncertainties around the collection of such data required for successful assessments along with novel solutions to encounter such challenges is welcome. Predictive analytics towards prognostic health management, techno-economic analysis, and loss prevention of autonomously engineered systems are also of interest. Review papers are greatly welcome on the state of the art on the topics.
