Call For Papers
Vehicular communications is a growing area of communications between vehicles and including roadside communication infrastructure. Advances in wireless communications are making possible sharing of information through real time communications between vehicles and infrastructure. This has led to applications to increase safety of vehicles and communication between passengers and the Internet. Standardization efforts on vehicular communication are also underway to make vehicular transportation safer, greener and easier.

The aim of the journal is to publish high quality peer–reviewed papers in the area of vehicular communications. The scope encompasses all types of communications involving vehicles, including vehicle–to–vehicle and vehicle–to–infrastructure. The scope includes (but not limited to) the following topics related to vehicular communications:

    Vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communications
    Channel modelling, modulating and coding
    Congestion Control and scalability issues
    Protocol design, testing and verification
    Routing in vehicular networks
    Security issues and countermeasures
    Deployment and field testing
    Reducing energy consumption and enhancing safety of vehicles
    Wireless in–car networks
    Data collection and dissemination methods
    Mobility and handover issues
    Safety and driver assistance applications
    Standardization of protocols

Special Issues
Special Issue on Computational Aspects of Vehicular Networks
Submission Date: 2024-06-30

Connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) are the future of intelligent transportation. This future relies heavily on advancements in vehicular networks (VANETs), particularly their ability to process and communicate real-time data. This special issue explores the transformative potential of improved computational capabilities within VANETs. The goal is to leverage the computational aspects of VANETs and examine advancements and challenges in processing, communication, collaboration, and integration with emerging technologies like edge and fog computing and embedded artificial intelligence. We invite researchers, practitioners, and industry leaders to submit original contributions that explore this exciting convergence. We are particularly interested in research articles that address the synergies between edge computing and VANETs, focusing on the challenges and opportunities arising from this integration. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): Mobility and Networking: Context-Aware Routing. Congestion Control & Shaping. Integration with Edge, Fog, and Cloud Computing: Fog Computing for VANETs. Secure Task Offloading. Resource Management and Allocation: Onboard Resource Management. Resource Provisioning & Pricing. Security and Privacy: Privacy-Preserving Task Offloading. Secure Communication Strategies. Machine Learning and AI for VANET Integration: On-vehicle Machine Learning Federated Learning for Data Analysis.
