Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) is a novel and growing paradigm that enables seamless communication among vehicles, roadside infrastructure, and wireless devices. Vehicular communication networks are gaining the attention of academic, government, and industry sectors. A vehicular network has the potential to contribute to safer and more efficient transportation systems by providing a diversity of services and timely information to drivers, passengers and authorities. Existing and envisioned applications range from arterial management, adaptive signal control, accident avoidance warnings, parking lot controls, speed limits, lane management, and traffic management, to vehicle-to-vehicle-based applications such as collision avoidance, collision notification, driver assistance, intelligent navigation, adaptive cruise control, and precision parking).
The aim of this special edition journal is to attract and publish high quality peer–reviewed papers in the area of mobile and vehicular communications. The editorial board invites researchers to contribute to the field of vehicular communications, including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) types of communication. Therefore, the scope of this journal includes, but is not limited to, the following topics related to vehicular networks:
- Data Dissemination in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
- Routing in Vehicular Networks
- Data Hovering in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
- Vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, and vehicle-to-everything protocols and algorithms
- Modelling and Analysis of Vehicular Network Protocols
- Simulation of Vehicular Networks
- Performance evaluation of vehicular network protocols
- Scalability issues in Large-scale Vehicular Networks
- Vehicular Sensor Networks
- Security issues in vehicular communications
- Testbeds and testing
- In-car wireless networks
- Vehicular networks and IoT
- Vehicular Cloud Networks
- Vehicular Network Applications

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 2200 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.
