Special Issue "Vehicular Networks and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 December 2018)
With the recent developments in short- and medium-range communication, such as DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication), as well as in long-range cellular communication networks, vehicles will soon be able to talk to one another, as well as to their environments. By offering real-time traffic information, collision-avoidance assistance, automatic emergency incident notification, or vision enhancement systems, vehicular communications will help drivers to make better informed, more coordinated, and more intelligent decisions, increasing the overall safety and efficiency of transportation systems.
This Special Issue seeks to publish high quality peer-reviewed papers in the area of vehicular networks and applications. The topics cover all types of vehicular communications, including vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicle-to-pedestrian, and intra-vehicle.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication)
- Channel modeling, modulation and coding
- Congestion control and scalability issues
- Medium access control protocols
- Safety and non-safety applications
- Vehicle-to-vehicle/roadside/pedestrian/cloud communication
- Vehicular IoT
- Cellular V2X (e.g., LTE-D, mmWave, 5G)
- Information and sensor fusion
- Security and privacy issues
- Wireless in-car networks
- Automotive Ethernet
