Vehicular Cloud Computing for Traffic Management and Systems (Advances in Computer and Electrical Engineering)

Road accidents caused by impaired and distracted driving as well as traffic congestion are on the rise, with the numbers increasing dramatically every day. Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) aim to improve the efficiency and safety of traveling by consolidating vehicle operations, managing vehicle traffic, and notifying drivers with alerts and safety messages in real time. Vehicular Cloud Computing for Traffic Management and Systems provides innovative research on the rapidly advancing applications of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. It also covers the need to fully utilize vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) resources to provide updated and dynamic information about the conditions of road traffic so that the number of road accidents can be minimized. Featuring research on topics such as identity management, computational architecture, and resource management, this book is ideally designed for urban planners, researchers, policy makers, graduate-level students, transportation engineers, and technology developers seeking current research on vehicle computational design, architecture, security, and privacy.
