    Explainable AI for Autonomous Vehicles: Concepts, Challenges, and Applications is a comprehensive guide to developing and applying explainable artificial intelligence (XAI) in the context of autonomous vehicles. It begins with an introduction to XAI and its importance in developing autonomous vehicles. It also provides an overview of the challenges and limitations of traditional black-box AI models and how XAI can help address these challenges by providing transparency and interpretability in the decision-making process of autonomous vehicles. The book then covers the state-of-the-art techniques and methods for XAI in autonomous vehicles, including model-agnostic approaches, post-hoc explanations, and local and global interpretability techniques. It also discusses the challenges and applications of XAI in autonomous vehicles, such as enhancing safety and reliability, improving user trust and acceptance, and enhancing overall system performance. Ethical and social considerations are also addressed in the book, such as the impact of XAI on user privacy and autonomy and the potential for bias and discrimination in XAI-based systems. Furthermore, the book provides insights into future directions and emerging trends in XAI for autonomous vehicles, such as integrating XAI with other advanced technologies like machine learning and blockchain and the potential for XAI to enable new applications and services in the autonomous vehicle industry. Overall, the book aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of XAI and its applications in autonomous vehicles to help readers develop effective XAI solutions that can enhance autonomous vehicle systems' safety, reliability, and performance while improving user trust and acceptance.

    This book:

    • Discusses authentication mechanisms for camera access, encryption protocols for data protection, and access control measures for camera systems.
    • Showcases the challenges such as integration with existing systems, privacy, and security concerns while implementing explainable artificial intelligence in autonomous vehicles.
    • Covers explainable artificial intelligence for resource management, optimization, adaptive control, and decision-making.
    • Explains important topics such as vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication, remote monitoring, and control.
    • Emphasizes enhancing safety, reliability, overall system performance, and improving user trust in autonomous vehicles.

    The book is intended to provide researchers, engineers, and practitioners with a comprehensive understanding of XAI's key concepts, challenges, and applications in the context of autonomous vehicles. It is primarily written for senior undergraduate, graduate students, and academic researchers in the fields of electrical engineering, electronics and communication engineering, computer science and engineering, information technology, and automotive engineering.
