Book series information

Learn more about the specialist Book Series that the IET publish and find information the respective editorial boards.

Within our 7 main topics areas (Computing; Control, Robotics and Sensors; Electromagnetic Waves; Energy Engineering; Healthcare Technologies; Materials, Circuits and Devices; Radar, Sonar and Navigation) we have a number of book series which are steered by advisory editorial boards comprising leading international subject experts:

  • IET Book Series on Big Data
  • IET International Book Series on Sensors
  • SciTech Book Series on Radar, Sonar and Navigation
  • IET Book Series on Advances in Biometrics
  • IET Book Series on Transportation

For these series, proposals for advanced level textbooks, research monographs, reference books, coherently integrated multi-author edited books and handbooks, will be reviewed by the Series Editor and/or editorial board members with additional reviews from independent reviewers where appropriate. Please email us at author_support@theiet.org for more information

We are proud to have the endorsement and guidance of the following editorial boards:

This series covers all aspects of biometrics, including:

• Development and enhancement of individual biometric modalities including the established and traditional modalities (e.g. face, fingerprint, iris, signature and handwriting recognition) and also newer or emerging modalities (gait, ear-shape, neurological patterns, etc);
• Multibiometrics, theoretical and practical issues, implementation of practical systems, multiclassifier and multimodal approaches;
• Soft biometrics and information fusion for identification, verification and trait prediction;
• Human factors and the human-computer interface issues for biometric systems, exception handling strategies;
• Template construction and template management, ageing factors and their impact on biometric systems;
• Usability and user-oriented design, psychological and physiological principles and system integration;
• Sensors and sensor technologies for biometric processing;
• Database technologies to support biometric systems;
• Implementation of biometric systems, security engineering implications, smartcard and associated technologies in implementation, implementation platforms, system design and performance evaluation;
• Trust and privacy issues, security of biometric systems and supporting technological solutions, biometric template protection;
• Biometric cryptosystems, security and biometrics-linked encryption;
• Links with forensic processing and cross-disciplinary commonalities;
• Core underpinning technologies (e.g. image analysis, pattern recognition, computer vision, signal processing, etc.), where the specific relevance to biometric processing can be demonstrated;

IET book series on transportation

Series editor:

• John Walker (Southampton, UK)

Editorial board:

• Alan Stevens (Transport Research Laboratory, UK)
• John Miles (Cambridge and ARUP, UK)
• JianPing Wu (Tsinghua, China)
• Hironao Kawashima (Keio, Japan)

This series covers all aspects of the science and technology which underpin the development of intelligent transportation.

The rise in electric vehicle adaption and acceptance depends on the development and refinement of new technologies in a number of connected areas, including battery technology, power systems, control systems, communication systems, steering control and lane following technology, intelligent transport infrastructure, charging station design, mapping systems and satnav technology, vehicle reliability and safety, vehicle security and cybersecurity, modelling and simulation, EMC issues, speed and payment enforcement systems, incident management, cruise control and automated parking systems. Topics include vehicle design considerations, materials technology, software engineering and reliability, technical standards, power electronics and engine technology. Applications include driverless ground vehicles, automated guideway transit including trains and buses, autonomous flight systems and drone technology, water and underwater autonomous vehicles.

Books in this series cover developments across this range of technologies, and draw on a wide range of case studies including experimental and operational vehicles. The series includes monographs that offer new insights, as well as edited multi-author reviews, for instance of an application area or a technology, with authors from across the world, including academia and industry.
