Special Issue on
Network Routing and Communication
Algorithm for Intelligent Transportation
The goal of this special issue is to gather recent research contributions related to network routing and
communication algorithm for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
More specifically, this special issue aims at fostering innovative research on Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and
Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications for ITS specific applications.
For submission, we would like to encourage not only results and insights obtained from simulations and
theoretical analysis but also those obtained from implementations.
The development of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) brings the promise of improved road safety and
traffic efficiency while providing comfortable/infotainment driving environments. Recent advances of
wireless vehicular communications supporting Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure
(V2I) communications have become a cornerstone of ITS. Wireless vehicular communications for ITS is
one of the most interesting and active research topics, which is requiring vital efforts from both the industry
and the academic. In particular, studies on network routing and communication algorithm for V2V and
V2I have posed various challenges, while most of related standards in ETSI and ISO have been adopting
non-IP routing and communication algorithms. In other words, simple and basic solutions for V2V and V2I
have been adopted so far. This special issue is intended to introduce advanced non-IP and IP routing and
communication algorithms on various aspects related to ITS and to highlight the state-of-art research on ITS.
Topics of interest for the special issue include:
7 Antenna, propagation, and channel modeling for ITS
7 IP mobility protocols for ITS
7 Alert, safety, and infotainment communication algorithms for ITS
7 Bandwidth allocation and resource schedulers for ITS
7 Addressing, routing, and data transmission for ITS
7 Cross-layer design and optimization for ITS
7 Security and access control management in ITS
7 Location privacy in ITS
7 Practical standard development issues for ITS
7 Case studies of ITS applications
