abstract

  • The articles in this special issue focus on advances in vehicular communications networks. The first four deal with the refinement of several different important mechanisms in vehicular communication
    protocols, with the aim of controlling and reducing the overall network
    offered load, while guaranteeing a good level of accuracy, efficiency,
    and security. The last article proposes a system architecture, called
    VISIONS, that makes use of the 3G network to disseminate control
    information. The control information helps routing protocols improve
    their route selections.
