Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) plays a significant role in smart cities, with the future being the Autonomous Vehicle (AV). Such transportation systems integrated with today’s advanced vehicular and wireless network technologies will play a crucial role in improving the quality and delivery performance of diversified vehicular services. There are many unprecedented challenges that arise from Intelligent Transportation and Connected Vehicles Technologies (ITCVT). These include configuring vehicular cloud services to user requirements, connected vehicle security issues related to connectivity, big data analytics for intelligent transportation, vehicular cloud computing and service composition, and power management for smart electric vehicles. There is also a need for customized communication technology for the integrated solutions of connected vehicles and smart city sub-systems. The aim of the First International Workshop on ITCVT is to bring together engineers, researchers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications in the field of intelligent transportation and vehicle technology. Participants are invited to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in ITCVT systems. This workshop focuses on innovative applications, tools and frameworks in all technology areas related to connected vehicles in the context of smart cities and other application domains. Papers describing original novel work and advanced prototypes, systems and tools are encouraged.
Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all major areas, which include, but not limited to:
