Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems (VEHITS 2021) which was sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). This year VEHITS was, exceptionally, held as a web-based event, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, from 28 – 30 April. VEHITS focuses on innovative applications, tools and platforms in all technology areas such as signal processing, wireless communications, informatics and electronics, related to different kinds of vehicles, including cars, off-road vehicles, trains, ships, underwater vehicles, or flying machines, and the intelligent transportation systems that connect and manage large numbers of vehicles, not only in the context of smart cities, but in many other application domains. This conference brought together researchers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems. It had five main topic areas, covering different aspects, including Connected Vehicles, Data Analytics, Intelligent Transport Systems and Infrastructure, Intelligent Vehicle Technologies and Smart Mobility and Sustainable Transport Services. We believe the diversity and scope of the papers in these proceedings reflect the richness of the technical problems in each field and show clearly how new and innovative solutions are being devised to solve them. The conference was also complemented with a Special Session on Intelligent Mobility, Logistics and Transport - iMLTrans 2021, chaired by Irina Makarova, Maria Drakaki, Polina Buyvol and Vadim Mavrin. VEHITS 2021 received 108 paper submissions, including the special session, from 34 countries in all continents, of which 25% were accepted as full papers. The high quality of the papers received imposed difficult choices during the review process. To evaluate each submission, a double-blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified independent researchers in the VEHITS 2021 topic areas. The high quality of VEHITS 2021 was also enhanced by the keynote lectures delivered by internationally known experts, namely Bart van Arem (TU Delft, Netherlands) and Hesham A. Rakha (Virginia Tech, United States). The best academic and industrial contributions to the conference and the best student submissions were distinguished with awards based on the combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation, as evaluated by session chairs at the conference. Building an interesting and successful program for the conference required the dedicated effort of many people. We would like to express our thanks, first of all, to all authors who submitted papers to VEHITS 2021. We would also like to express our gratitude to all members of the Program Committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and valuable time. Furthermore, we thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and prepare their talks. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge the professional support of the INSTICC team for all organizational processes, especially given the need to introduce online streaming, forum management, direct messaging facilitation and other web-based activities in order to make it possible for VEHITS 2021 authors to present their work and share ideas with colleagues in spite of the logistic difficulties caused by the current pandemic situation. We hope that all colleagues who participated in the conference and/or read its proceedings, find this a fruitful and inspiring conference. We look forward to the further development of the Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems community and look forward to having additional research results presented at the next edition of VEHITS, details of which are available at http://www.vehits.org/.
