About this Research Topic
Vehicle crashes on the roads and highways cost the loss of lives and damages to properties. Connected vehicles have been identified as a key technology for increasing road safety and transport efficiency. In recent years, vehicle infrastructure integration technology has attracted a great amount of attention, and can also bring inestimable economic value whilst playing an important role in the next generation of intelligent transportation systems and communication network development.
The purpose of this Research Topic is to discuss the recent advances in connected vehicles and bring together engineers, researchers, and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of Vehicle Technology, Intelligent Transport Systems, Wireless Sensor Communications, and IoT.
The call for the proposed Research Topic is right on time. The development and large-scale deployment of Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) provides a unique opportunity to make our mobility system safer, cleaner, more efficient, and more user-friendly. Member States, industry, and the European Commission are collaborating to achieve the EU's ambitious vision for connected and automated mobility in a Digital Single Market, taking into consideration public authorities, citizens, cities, and industry interests. With the evolution of digital technologies, such as robotics, internet of things, artificial intelligence, high-performance computers, and powerful communication networks, vehicles in general, and cars in particular, are quickly changing. Therefore policies and legislation relating to digital technology, including cybersecurity, liability, data use, privacy, and radio spectrum/connectivity are of increasing relevance to the transport sector. These aspects need coordination at the European level in order to ensure that a vehicle may remain connected when crossing borders.
Areas of interest for this Research Topic include, but are not limited to:
•Vehicular Wireless Medium Access Control
