Abstract
Vehicular communications is receiving an increased interest by the research community both from industry and academia. These technologies known as Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANET) include vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications and can be based on various communications technologies. This special issue on Vehicular Networking Protocols technologies highlights new trends on networking protocols and their issues, further focusing on the Medium Access Control (MAC) layer and Physical (PHY) layer challenges. It also underlines on algorithms and protocols for data aggregation and group-based networking in vehicular networks.
