Special Issue on "Vehicular Communications, Networks, and Applications"


Aims and Scope

Vehicular communication and networking have been identified  as key technologies for
increasing road  safety and  transport  efficiency.
Vehicular networks aim to ensure traffic safety for  drivers, provide comfort for
passengers  and  reduce  transportation time and  fuel
consumption. The development of vehicular  communication and networking technologies
 are expected to enable many potential applications
, including automatic  collision notification  and prevention,  emergency
management,  assistances for  safe driving, real-time traffic
congestion notification,  location-based driver  information services, high-speed
tolling, vehicle tracking, automobile Internet access,
and many others.  To facilitate these applications,  many different types of
communication  and  networking would be involved, including
intra-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle (V-to-V), vehicle-to-roadside (V-to-R) and
vehicle-to-infrastructure (V-to-I) communications.

This  special issue aims to foster the dissemination of high-quality,  original,
unpublished  research  covering all aspects related to
the Vehicular Communications, Networks, and Applications. Topics of interest
include, but not limited to, the followings:

        Availability and Scalability Issues in Vehicular Networks
        Communication Protocol Design for Vehicular Networks
        Cooperative Vehicular Communications
        Cross-layer Design and Optimization for Vehicular Networks
        Emergency Applications and Technologies in Vehicular Networks
        Green Technologies and Vehicular Networks
        Intra-vehicle, V2I, V2R, and V2V Communication Protocols
        Contention and Congestion Control for Vehicular Networks
        Multicast and Broadcast Protocols for Vehicular Networks
        Mobility, Traffic Models and Network Management for Vehicular Networks
        Modulation, Coding, and Channel Modeling for Vehicular Networks
        Multi-Channel Management for Vehicular Networks
        Network Architecture of Vehicular Networks
        Radio Resource Management and QoS Support for Vehicular Networks
        Real-time Experimental Systems and Testbeds for Vehicular Communications
        Security and Privacy Technologies for Vehicular Networks
        Services and Applications of Vehicular Networks
        Simulation Framework and Real-World Testbeds for Vehicular Networks
        Vehicular Network Performance Modeling and Analysis
        Vehicular Network Medium Access Control and Routing Protocols
