Over the last few years vehicular networks have been receiving alot of attention from academia, industry, standardization bodies,and the various transportation agencies and departments of manygovernments around the world. It is envisaged in the next decadethat the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) will become anessential part of our daily life. This book describes models and/oralgorithms designed to investigate evolutionary solutions toovercome important issues such as congestion control, routing,clustering, interconnection with long-term evolution (LTE) and LTEadvanced cellular networks, traffic signal control and analysis ofperformances through simulation tools and the generation ofvehicular mobility traces for network simulations. It provides an up-to-date progress report on the most significantcontributions carried out by the specialized research community inthe various fields concerned, in terms of models and algorithms.The proposals and new directions explored by the authors are highlyoriginal, and a rather descriptive method has been chosen, whichaims at drawing up complete states of the art as well as providingan overall presentation of the personal contributions brought bythe authors and clearly illustrating the advantages and limitationsas well as issues for future work.
