Roadside Networks for Vehicular Communications

Book Description

Vehicular Communication Networks (VCNs) is a technology aim for improving traffic safety and efficiency in different road systems and networks. VCNs offer an efficient communication platform for intelligent transportation systems and related services, as well as multimedia and date services. Roadside Networks for Vehicular Communications: Architectures, Applications, and Test Fields attempts to close the gap between science and technology in the field of roadside backbones for VCNs. This collection will be useful not only for researchers and engineers at universities, but for students in the fields of wireless communication networks, especially vehicular communication networks, and backbone networks as well.
