Emerging applications of Internet of Vehicles in Intelligent Transportation Systems

Special issue call for papers from International Journal of Intelligent Unmanned Systems

The Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is an expected conjunction of the Internet of Things and the mobile Internet. The IoV comprised of all current and new vehicles, either integrated or fitted with two-way RF equipment. The IoV uses Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Road (V2R), Vehicle-to-Human (V2H) and Vehicle-to-Sensor (V2S) communication networks to communicate between public networks and vehicles.

It is predicted that more than 80% of vehicles sold globally in 2020 will be connected, either by smart-phone or embedded device integration. IoV is one of the possible technologies to improve road safety, and provide in-car entertainment and on-board Internet services, such as, social networking, online media streaming, online navigation and real-time traffic report acquisition. Nowadays, a range of computing technologies such as “5G”, “cloud computing” and “big data” have been used to monitor the vehicles, road traffic analysis, accident identification system. Moreover, the convergence of IoV technology encompasses environmental protection, information communications, energy conservation, and safety. Due to the rapid growth in connected vehicles, many research issues need to be addressed it includes security, privacy and trust, network resource optimization and QoS guarantee for IoV.

In response to such a need, this special issue aims to serve as a forum for the identification of problems and research trends, the dissemination of novel results and ideas, and the discussion of hot topics in the area of simulation for vehicular communication systems. Prospective authors are welcome to submit original and high-quality papers in any of the topics of this special issue. This special issue intends to disseminate the latest research results in this exciting research area of IoV, vehicular communication systems and intelligent road traffic analysis.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Semi-automated vehicles for IoV
  • Autonomous vehicles for IoV
  • Intelligent robotic vehicles for IoV
  • cooperative driving for IoV
  • cooperative vehicle-infrastructure systems for IoV
