Abstract

With the forthcoming enforcement of installing wireless units for Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) on newly manufactured light-duty vehicles in the US, the development of the Cellular V2X (C-V2X) standard in 3GPP, and the growing interest in connected autonomous vehicles, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications and vehicular networking for improving road safety, enhancing traffic efficiency, and supporting heterogeneous vehicular applications for smart mobility is foreseeable in the near future. This book provides an overview of vehicular networks on the performance analysis, potential applications, and existing challenges.

It covers the fundamental methodology for modeling the vehicular traffic and the performance of vehicular communication protocols, as well as the challenges and cutting-edge solutions for vehicular positioning in urban canyon and big data mining for traffic flow prediction and various vehicular applications. The concept of mobile edge computing (MEC) in vehicular networks is also introduced and discussed for better resource management and network utilization. Finally, how to preserve privacy and system security while not disrupting the normal operation of vehicular networks is a pivotal challenge to overcome. This book is suitable for researchers and professionals in the area of vehicular networking and intelligent transportation systems. College engineering postgraduate students who aspire for an in-depth study and understanding of the upcoming trend in vehicular networks and related technologies will also find this book of interest.
