A Survey on Internet of Things for Smart Vehicles
In a Smart City, all objects need to be smart hence would have embedded processors and capability to communicate with each other through wired or wireless connections .These increasingly intelligent objects would provide safe and convenient environment through growing interconnection and interoperability, which is also termed as Internet of Things (IoT), Within the objectives of IoT also lies the vehicle to smart object communications, vehicles play an important role for safe and convenient travel. The main vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) is to equip reallife physical objects with computing and communication abilities so that they can interact with each other for the social good. As one of the important members of IoT, Internet of Vehicles (IoV) has seen rapid development in communication technologies. Now, vehicles can easily exchange safety, efficiency, comfort-related information with other vehicles and infrastructures using vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). Where vehicles are the key social entities in the machine-to-machine vehicular social networks. The near real time applications offer safe and efficient travel of the vehicle users, and the offline data ensures smart behaviour of the vehicles and data analysis for the transport authorities. We have identified the social structures of IoV components, their relationships, and the interaction types. We have mapped VANETs components into IoT architecture reference model to offer better integration of IoV with other IoT domains. Finally, we provide the implementation details and the experimental study to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed system as well as include different application scenarios for various user groups, practical deployment of the proposed system and using it to collect real life IoV related multi-modal sensory information in city or urban areas can be another interesting direction We envision that the IoV would be an integral part of intelligent transport systems in the future smart cities.
