Aims and Scope
Highlights of Vehicles is an international open access journal, dedicated to publishing research in the field of automotive engineering, science and technology. The journal serves as a platform for addressing and communicating studies in all areas of design, modeling and simulation, manufacture and testing of land vehicles such as motorcycles, cars, trucks, buses, and electric vehicles.

As a scholarly open access journal, Highlights of Vehicles aims to report all scientifically sound research, after a rigorous peer review process. To advance science communication, authors are encouraged to publish their experimental and methodical results in as much detail as possible so that the results can be reproduced. The journal accepts research articles and reviews.

The journal will cover topics including:

  • advanced technology for new energy vehicles (NEV)
  • automotive electrical and electronic system
  • autonomous vehicles
  • fuel and energy
  • intelligent transportation system (ITS) and recycling
  • internal combustion engines
  • internet of vehicles (IoV) and applications
  • modeling and simulation
  • optimum design
  • smart and innovative materials for vehicles
  • vehicle components
  • vehicle durability
  • vehicle dynamics
  • vehicle energy management
  • vehicle lightweighting
  • vehicle manufacturing
  • vehicle noise and vibration
  • vehicle safety
  • vehicle trials and testing
  • vehicles and environment
  • and others as related to vehicles

In this paper, we present the instrumentation of a city bicycle with different sensors and devices in order to measure cyclists’ inputs (i.e., pedaling and steering) and the dynamical and kinematic properties of the bicycle. The In this paper, we present the instrumentation of a city bicycle with different sensors and devices in order to measure cyclists’ inputs (i.e., pedaling and steering) and the dynamical and kinematic properties of the bicycle. The instrumentation includes two tri-axial accelerometers, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), GPS, a potentiometer, a laser scanner, a pedaling power meter, and speed and cadence sensors, in addition to a mobile eye tracker worn by the cyclists. After the instrumentation and adjustment of the sensors, a study was conducted in the city of Stockholm using the instrumented bicycle with the aim to evaluate cycling safety and comfort on snowy surface conditions. The outputs of this experiment will be employed further to study the interaction of cyclists with road infrastructure and other road users and their impact on cyclists’ behavior and cycling safety. or Access Full Article
