 Special Issue on Intelligent Transportation Communication Systems

There is a phenomenal growth of research activities in connecting vehicles, which use advanced information and communication technologies to connect vehicles with various devices (V2X), infrastructures (V2I), services (V2V), and participants (V2P). Connected vehicles have been envisioned to provide enabling key technologies to enhance transportation efficiency, reducing incidents, improving safety, and mitigating the impacts of traffic congestion. The potential of connected vehicles has been acknowledged with the establishment of ambitious research programs around the globe. In particular, radio spectrum has been allocated in North America, Europe, and Japan for the dedicated short range communications (DSRC) to facilitate intelligent transportation. The United States Department of Transportation has been taking steps to mandate car makers to enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technologies for light vehicles for a safer driving experience. Recently, we have also witnessed 5G connected vehicular successful test-bed in South Korea.

To be precise, we are on the verge of deploying the 1st generation of wirelessly connected vehicles. The aim of this special issue is to present a collection of high-quality research papers on the state-of-the-art in the emerging technologies for connecting vehicles, the latest development in standardization and regulation, as well as the potential services and applications for connecting vehicles. We are soliciting original contributions that have not been published and are not currently under consideration by any other journals. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Communications and networking for connecting vehicles
  • V2V, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-X (V2X) communications and networking
  • Spectrum assignment and EMC regulations for connected vehicles
  • Wireless technologies for connecting vehicles (propagation models, RF technologies, antenna design, physical layer design, etc.)
  • Link and network layer protocols for connecting vehicles (MAC, routing, mobility management, geo-networking)
  • Multimedia applications for connected vehicles
  • Architectures, and protocols for data dissemination, processing, and aggregation for connected vehicles
  • Networked information processing, decision making, and intelligent control
  • Safe driving and accident avoidance
  • Railway communications and networking
  • Applications and services with connected vehicles
  • Security, privacy, and dependability for connected vehicles
  • Cellular networks cohesion with connected vehicles for various safety and non-safety applications
  • Simulation and performance evaluation techniques for intelligent transportation communications
  • Results from experimental systems, testbeds, and pilot studies for intelligent transportation communications
  • Assessment of impact of connected vehicles on safety, accident prevention, hazard reduction, intersection assistance, cooperative awareness services, misbehavior detection and mitigation services
  • Intelligent transportation, vehicle traffic modeling, decentralized congestion control, highway automation and platooning, autonomous cooperative driving, location-dependent services
