Upcoming Special Issues



Connected vehicle is one of the key technologies for safer and more efficient transportation systems. Vehicle-to- Everything (V2X) communications including Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) have attracted much attention in the last decade, and the standardization effort for vehicular communications has led to the development of IEEE 802.11p and discussions about 5G-enabled V2X solutions. Despite a number of initiatives, research works, and tests, there are still questions and concerns about how to provide reliable and scalable low latency connectivity, design secure and robust systems, and about the development of applications for improved safety and cooperative driving. The aim of this special issue is to present state-of-the-art technologies in V2X communications and networks, recent development in standardizations and policies, and attractive services. The Special Issue includes (but not limited to) the following topics of interest:
