Special Issue on Vehicular Communications and Applications

The increasing importance of vehicle and infrastructure communications is
recognized by governments, highway authorities, automobile manufacturers and
the academic community. Governments have allocated spectrum for
vehicle-vehicle and vehicle-infrastructure communications (e.g., DSRC or 4G
cellular). Government and industry have funded large partnerships or
projects such as IVI (e.g., CAMP, ACAS), ADASE2, as well as new initiatives
such as IVBSS, CICAS, and VII, among others.  Academic conferences and
workshops on automotive networking and ITS are beginning to grow in
popularity (e.g., VANET, V2VCOM, and VDTN). Standards community has been
active to ensure interoperability with participation of IEEE, ISO, TIA, ASTM
and major automobile manufacturers and other industrial cooperation.
There are unique research challenges that need to be addressed in order for
vehicle and vehicle-infrastructure communications to be widely deployed. The
combination of unique features of automotive applications and unique
features of the automotive networking leads to many interesting research
areas. The wireless networking between vehicles and with infrastructure has
different characteristics from other conventional wireless networking
problems. For example, due to rapidly-changing topology as vehicles move
around, there are resemblances to ad hoc networking scenarios. However, the
constraints and optimizations are very different. Power efficiency is not as
important for vehicle communications as it is for traditional ad hoc
networking. Vehicles in general are also constrained to move within roads
(and within lanes most of the time). Automotive applications also demand
stringent communications performance requirements that are not seen in
conventional wireless networks.
The purpose of this special issue is to showcase the variety of research
being conducted in automotive networking, ITS and applications to survey and
collect the state-of-the-art in this emerging field. Topics of interest

• Intelligent / interactive transport system applications
• Network architectures, system architectures for ITS
• Link / MAC and physical layer issues, algorithms and protocols
• Network protocols and algorithms, including clustering, routing, etc.
• Higher layers (application, transport) algorithms and protocols
• Cross-layer protocol design
• Inter-working of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure
• Multimedia-based ad-hoc networking & WLAN aspects
• Mobility management
• Vehicle movement and performance simulation
• Security for automotive networking
• Network management for automotive networking
• Vehicle to Grid Communication
• Intra-vehicle networks supporting x-by-wire applications
