Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The ground, flying, and underwater Internet of Vehicles (IoVs) are considered a promising paradigm resulting in numerous applications, including shipment of goods, home package delivery, crop monitoring, agricultural surveillance, and rescue operations while operating in different environments, such as ground, road, space, or underwater. IoV nodes are vehicles that collaborate with each other in an ad hoc manner through different communication technologies. However, IoVs can also communicate with fixed ground stations, such as with an air traffic controller, with a floating station or through a non-line-of-sight (NLoS) link with a satellite-aided controller, to achieve both planned and unplanned missions. Besides the dissimilar communication technologies, various problems appear in these inter-vehicle and vehicle-to-X communications, including energy management, lack of security, the unreliability of wireless communication links, and the handover from LoS to NLoS and vice versa.

This Special Issue aims to disseminate and identify areas that can increase the efficiency of various aspects of the ground, flying, and underwater Internet of Vehicles. To this end, we are seeking high-quality research papers in the domain of the IoVs that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • The realization of wireless sensor networks within the IoVs;
  • The impact of social networks on the IoVs;
  • Cellular communication (4G, 5G) in the IoVs;
  • Security and privacy issues within the IoVs;
  • Trust management schemes for the IoVs;
  • Cyber security aspects of the IoVs;
  • IoVs over future internet architectures (NDN, CCN);
  • Performance evaluations of the IoVs;
  • Routing protocols for the IoV;
  • Testbeds and simulation tools for the IoVs;
  • Content dissemination over the IoVs;
  • Multimedia communications in the IoVs;
  • Applications of blockchain and edge computing for the IoVs;
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) for the IoVs;
  • Emerging technologies for the IoVs.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
