1. Introduction

A connected vehicle is a vehicle that is equipped with internet access and wireless LAN that allow sharing of data through various devices inside as well as outside the vehicle. The ad-hoc network of such vehicles, often referred to as VANET or Internet of Vehicles (IoV), is a typical application of the IoT technology. It may be regarded as integration of three networks: inter-vehicle network, intra-vehicle network, and vehicular mobile network. Vehicle connectivity in VANET can be of several different varieties including Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Cloud (V2C), and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X). According to one survey, it is expected that there will be around 380 million connected cars on the roads by 2020. The IoV is an attractive aspect of the new smart transportation vision. In this context, the focus of the proposed book is on the new smart transportation system, IoV connectivity frameworks, issues of security and safety in VANETs, future developments in the IoV, technical solutions to address the key challenges, and other related research and development.

2. Suggested Topics

Focus of the book is on the development of the IoV paradigm, discussing frameworks, methodologies, benefits, limitations, as well as case studies relating to the IoV/VANET vision. The relevant topics include:

• Concepts, history, development and future of IoV
• Principles, technologies and architectures relating to VANET
• From IoT to IoV – historical perspective
• Connectivity of vehicles: protocols and frameworks
• IoV essentials: security, trust, safety and privacy
• Ad hoc and deterministic networking for mobility
• Authentication and authorisation mechanisms
• Human machine interactions in automobiles
• Road/vehicle/passenger/pedestrian safety in smart transportation
• Information security and management relevant to VANET
• Challenges and limitations relating to VANET and MANET
• Big Data challenges for connected vehicles in IoV
• Inter-vehicular and intra-vehicular networks
• Vehicular grids and vehicular clouds
• Vehicular mobile networks and MANET
• Vehicle-Infrastructure and Vehicle to Vehicle networks
• Vehicle to Cloud and Vehicle to Everything infrastructures
• Smart transportation and vehicular intelligence
• Intelligent traffic management
• Autonomous operations, AI and machine learning
• Sensor technologies and networks
• Ambient intelligence in VANET and MANET
• Future vehicular networks and virtualisation
• And other topics relevant to IoV/VANET/MANET

3. Aim and Objectives

The aim of the proposed book is to report and discuss the related topics to benefit researchers/practitioners as well as to advance the existing body of knowledge in the proposed subject area of IoV/VANET. The objectives are:
• To capture the latest research on wireless connectivity, machine learning, sensor technology, and autonomous operations in the IoV vision
• To provide technical solutions that address the key challenges of security and safety, and limitations with respect to VANETs and present case studies
• To develop a text book and complete reference for students, researchers and practitioners in the subject area of IoV, VANET and MANET

4. Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit 1-2-page chapter proposals clearly stating the objective, scope and structure of the proposed chapters - by the deadline mentioned above. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified within two weeks (in most cases) and given guidelines for full chapter preparation. Completed chapters should be approximately 10,000 words or 20 pages in length – longer chapters will also be acceptable. Full chapters will be reviewed following a double-blind peer review process to ensure relevance, quality, originality and high information content. Proposals (and full chapters, after the acceptance of the proposal), in the form of WORD files, should be sent to: [email protected]

5. Important dates

• Chapter proposals due date: 10 April 2019
• Notification of acceptance: within 2 weeks of receipt of proposals
• Full chapters due date: within 6 weeks of acceptance notification
• Chapter reviews feedback: within 6 weeks of chapter due date
• Revised chapters due date: within 3 weeks of review feedback
