    On 16 January 2017, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) received its first new Siemens-built light-rail vehicle (Figures 1 and 2). Siemens is building the new light-rail vehicles in Sacramento, California. The SFMTA contract is a record 215 vehicles, Siemens' largest U.S. light rail order ever. The base contract for US$648 million covers 175 vehicles. Including 85 optional ad... View full abstract»

    The proposed rule issued in December 2016 by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires automakers to include vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technologies in all new light-duty vehicles. The rule suggests developing standardized messaging technology together with industry that would advance the deployment of connected vehicle technologies throughout the United States. The notice of proposed rul... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2004 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Cloud-based vehicular networks are a promising paradigm to improve vehicular services through distributing computation tasks between remote clouds and local vehicular terminals. To further reduce the latency and the transmission cost of the computation off-loading, we propose a cloud-based mobileedge computing (MEC) off-loading framework in vehicular networks. In this framework, we study the effec... View full abstract»

    In a public service announcement on 17 March 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation jointly with the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a warning regarding the increasing vulnerability of motor vehicles to remote exploits [18]. Engine shutdowns, disabled brakes, and locked doors are a few examples of possible vehicle cyberse... View full abstract»

    With the increase of wireless data traffic demand, supplementing dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) with additional spectral opportunities becomes very important. In many countries, due to the switchover from analog to digital television, a significant portion of the television (TV) band has been released for opportunistic cognitive access. Therefore, one possible solution to the spectrum... View full abstract»

    Long-term evolution (LTE)-based vehicular-to-everything (V2X) service is one of the promising technologies for supporting intelligent transportation systems (ITSs). LTE adopts a request-grant approach for allocating wireless resources. Each user follows a contention-based random access (RA) procedure to transmit its request. However, this procedure may result in unbounded delay if too many users c... View full abstract»

    In this article, we explore the recent Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) long-term evolution (LTE) device-to-device (D2D) radio resource management specification (Release 14) to identify the challenges and evaluate the potential of unsupervised LTE D2D (mode 2) for safety-critical vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications. We also propose two distributed resource allocation strategies f... View full abstract»

    A vehicular cloud (VC) is a type of mobile ad hoc cloud in which multiple vehicles share their resources and perform collaborative jobs. In this article, we propose a software-defined (SD) VC (SDVC) architecture to achieve flexible VC control and efficient resource utilization in a centralized manner. View full abstract»

    The cooperative intelligent transport system (C-ITS) (also known as connected vehicle technology in the United States) is an application using vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications, at a carrier frequency of 5.9 GHz, to increase road traffic safety and efficiency in Europe. In this article, we hope to shed light on the current status of the C-ITS in Europe and... View full abstract»
