The book presents the main technologies used in vehicular networks for smart vehicles. Different technologies can be exploited to provide communication, control and safety capability to vehicles, as well as comfort and entertainment applications are well supported. It investigates main aspects of vehicular ad hoc networks (i.e., the communication protocols V2V and V2I, differences from MANETs, main applications), and the main technologies, and sensors, used to support emerging inter and intra-vehicle communications.
The authors also have envisaged the vehicle of tomorrow i.e., smart vehicle, which will be considerably different from the vehicle of today, due to the use of short distance transmitters and receivers that operate similarly to Doppler radar, and the increase in a vehicle-s ability to control and take decisions.
