FOREWORD: The Electric Vehicles (EVs) use electric power source for transportation capabilities. Currently electric cars are feasible alternative rather than to the conventional gasoline powered cars because they are significantly less complex, more reliable/efficient, and environmentally friendly, and cost less to operate.The success of extensive electric vehicle carrying depends on the reliability of both the electric grid and the charging equipment. In car accidents, EVs are considered with standard impact a lot better than most gasoline-powered vehicles. The fossil fuel powered vehicles are generally non-friendly regarding to the environmental aspects. In the past, the vehicles with lower consumption have been presented. After that, the research direct towards more environmentally friendly vehicles which hybrid and electrical vehicles have been developed. The hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and developed plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) are improved for the integration of electrical vehicles which should allow for the vehicle to be charged by green power.

Electric Vehicle components include electric motor, battery pack, battery charger, motor controller, contactor, fuse and circuit breaker, vacuum pump, power steering pump, DC/DC converter, and the instrumentation which each of them has individual technology to obtain the EV efficiency improvement. Also, many EVs have been specialized with special features including resealing tires, programmable charging systems, and regenerative breaking, low maintenance and fairly cost efficient vehicles, with long life batteries.

The current book concerns in development of the advanced autonomous electric vehicles applied in intelligent transport systems and using the smart technologies. Although electric tractions are not new subjects, but their application to electrical automotive vehicles and technological developments for responding to the modern life requirements are discussed.

The above and also advanced aspects related to electric vehicles including the safety systems, plug-in electric vehicles, autonomous ground and underwater vehicles, intelligent transport systems, automotive applications, smart grids, hybrid power source, plug-in fuel cell vehicles, electrical traction motors, and in-wheel motors are illustrated in this book by the editors and authors, in the following topics: radar sensor detectors; sonar based image generation; dynamics analysis and responses; advanced sensing technologies and algorithms; intelligent highway surveillance; cyber security evaluation of critical infrastructures systems; sustainable information systems management for spatial governance; standards of communications; power electronics and drives; power control of smart grid; optimal shortterm scheduling of aggregators; energy efficiency of the multiport power converters; external magnetic field for supervision and diagnosis; batteries for electrical vehicles; computational study of Li-ion and Ni-Cd batteries; advanced drive architectures; and the future of electrical vehicles.

The book chapters and materials are very efficient in theoretical and application issues and are highly recommended for studying and considering in educational and research fields.
