Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Future Internet “Vehicular Networks and Mobility as Service” will consist of manuscripts describing state-of-the-art of intelligent transport systems and mobility as service.

The growing congestion in cities and urban agglomerations causes problems related to the nuisance of residents' lives and the functioning of economic entities in urban areas. One of the expected solutions to these problems will be systems using the Internet of things and artificial intelligence with machine learning functioning as intelligent transport systems forming vehicular networks and mobility as service. Therefore, in order to exchange theoretical and practical knowledge related to these issues, the Special Issue of Future Internet "Vehicular Networks and Mobility as Service" was launched. We invite all theoretician scientists and practitioners to submit their articles in order to share their knowledge in this area on the pages of this Special Issue of Future Internet. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, models and methods:

  • models and methods for vehicular networks
  • mobility as a service (MaaS) - theory and practice
  • various communication environments
  • mobility planning, development, prediction - innovative new mobility service
  • variable network density
  • dynamic topology of vehicular network
  • ITS intelligent transportation systems and services, C-ITS cooperative intelligent transport systems, IoT Internet of things
  • autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles
  • demand responsive transport and demand responsive service
  • deep learning, machine learning, artificial intelligence in transportation systems and applications

Manuscripts that emphasize either method development or applications are encouraged. Both original papers and review articles are welcome; authors interested in submitting a review article are encouraged to contact the editor in advance to discuss the scope.

In the upcoming decade and beyond, the Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) initiative will play a huge role in increasing road safety, traffic efficiency and comfort of driving in Europe. While several individual vehicular wireless communication technologies exist, there is still a lack of real flexible and modular platforms that can support the need for hybrid communication. In this paper, we propose a novel vehicular communication management framework (CAMINO), which incorporates flexible support for both short-range direct and long-range cellular technologies and offers built-in Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems’ (C-ITS) services for experimental validation in real-life settings. Moreover, integration with vehicle and infrastructure sensors/actuators and external services is enabled using a Distributed Uniform Streaming (DUST) framework. The framework is implemented and evaluated in the Smart Highway test site for two targeted use cases, proofing the functional operation in realistic environments. The flexibility and the modular architecture of the hybrid CAMINO framework offers valuable research potential in the field of vehicular communications and CCAM services and can enable cross-technology vehicular connectivity.

The diffusion of embedded and portable communication devices on modern vehicles entails new security risks since in-vehicle communication protocols are still insecure and vulnerable to attacks. Increasing interest is being given to the implementation of automotive cybersecurity systems. In this work we propose an efficient and high-performing intrusion detection system based on an unsupervised Kohonen Self-Organizing Map (SOM) network, to identify attack messages sent on a Controller Area Network (CAN) bus. The SOM network found a wide range of applications in intrusion detection because of its features of high detection rate, short training time, and high versatility. We propose to extend the SOM network to intrusion detection on in-vehicle CAN buses. Many hybrid approaches were proposed to combine the SOM network with other clustering methods, such as the k-means algorithm, in order to improve the accuracy of the model. We introduced a novel distance-based procedure to integrate the SOM network with the K-means algorithm and compared it with the traditional procedure. The models were tested on a car hacking dataset concerning traffic data messages sent on a CAN bus, characterized by a large volume of traffic with a low number of features and highly imbalanced data distribution. The experimentation showed that the proposed method greatly improved detection accuracy over the traditional approach. Full article
