In recent years, vehicle control systems have moved from the analog to the digital domain. In particular, x-by-wire systems are appearing and drive research efforts of the whole automotive industry over the recent decade. Networked electronic control units (ECUs) are increasingly being deployed. At the same time, the emerging vehicular networks in the form of in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructures communications are fast becoming a reality and will enable a variety of applications for safety, traffic efficiency, driver assistance, as well as infotainment to be incorporated into modern automotive designs. Thus, the new technologies are being developed for vehicular networks and networking provides an efficient method for today’s complex vehicle communications.

This special issue will be dedicated to the current state of the art vehicular communications and will focus on research and experiments in various aspects of vehicular communications.
