Scope and Objectives

Internet of vehicles (IoV) technology is one of the most important breakthroughs that can significantly support smart mobility systems toward achieving green and sustainable societies. For example, cooperative driving features enabled by IoV can significantly reduce CO2 emissions, thus facilitating greener transportation. Aerial vehicles, aka drones, are helpful for many applications including environment and traffic monitoring, crowd mobility and gathering surveillance in pandemics, disaster recovery, and so on. Internet of underwater vehicles could enable many innovative maritime applications such as autonomous shipping, target detection, navigation, localization, and environmental pollution control. However, we are facing two challenges in developing green IoV systems.

First, due to the heterogeneity of networking entities, strict application requirements, and limited resources in IoV environments, more advanced networking and computing technologies are required. Future IoV systems feature a larger number of devices and multi-access environments where different types of wireless spectrums should be efficiently utilized. At the same time, novel services, such as cooperative autonomous driving, IoV based safety and traffic efficiency applications, that demand unprecedented high accuracy and reliability, ultra-low latency, and large bandwidth, are emerging. This poses crucial challenges to the efficient use of the limited networking and computing resources.

Second, in order to enable a greener society, more research efforts should be conducted on IoV frameworks and systems to expedite the applications of emerging IoV technologies. Academic-industrial collaborations should be promoted to solve the existing problems toward a greener society.

This SIG will focus on the technical challenges for enabling green IoV systems, and the applications of IoV technologies for a greener society. The areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Green networking for IoV
  • Green computing for IoV
  • Green IoV for smart cities
  • Green IoV for intelligent transportation systems
  • Green IoV for energy-efficient sustainable cities
  • Green electric vehicles
  • Green unmanned aerial vehicles
  • Green heterogeneous unmanned ground and aerial vehicles
  • Green underwater vehicle technologies for smart ocean
  • IoV for greener society
  • Security & privacy for green IoV
