Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANET) emerged as an important research area and witnessed explosive growth over the past decades. VANET encompasses Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communication that plays a critical role in Smart Transportation systems. VANET is also considered as a soft real-time communication technology that is responsible for the communication between moving vehicles in a certain environment. The main aim of VANET is to provide efficient processing of complex and computational routing or security mechanisms in the network or vehicles by utilizing the vehicle-s resources and communication system. Due to many independent network members (vehicles) and the existence of human factors, misbehavior has occurred. Thus, authentication, Quality of Services, security, scalability, and robustness are the major issues in VANET. The main application areas of VANET are high-level road safety, Traffic efficiency, and many others.
There are numerous research books available for VANET. This list assists researchers for leading books in VANET as Opportunistic Networking: Vehicular, D2D and Cognitive Radio Networks, Mobility Modeling for Vehicular Communication Networks, Vehicular ad hoc Networks: Standards, Solutions, and Research, Bio-inspired Routing Protocols for Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks, and the rest of the topics are listed are below.
