Internet-of-things (IoT) has appeared as a novel and ground-breaking technology aiming to provide Internet connectivity to every device that have computation, communication and storage capability. Numerous applications such as smart health, smart cities, smart industries, and smart homes are a result of this phenomenon of connecting smart devices with the Internet. In order to provide secure and safe transportation, IoT has evolved into a novel concept, also known as the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) where smart vehicles equipped with computing, communicating and storing capabilities communicate with each other and with surrounding infrastructure via vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications. The latter enabled the exchange of critical information among smart vehicles including sudden lane changes, steep-curves, black ice warnings, and traffic accidents avoidance, therefore assisting the drivers in extreme and difficult situations. IoV has an enormous potential to provide secure and safer transportation as it enables the vehicles to take correct decision in a timely manner. In addition, IoV will also have intelligence and learning capabilities to anticipate the vehicular users’ intentions. Cloud-based IoV mechanisms provide several essential services from routing to content search, spectrum sharing, dissemination, attack protection, etc. However, IoV-based objects produce a vast volume of information frequently called as Big Data, which cannot be easily processed by traditional algorithms and schemes. Future smart environments will enable efficient handling and processing of Big Data that is generated by the associated objects for an effective communication and co-operation among them.
In addition, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play a crucial role in such environments, enabling for smarter services, applications, business processes and social interaction among the IoV objects. In this respect, a great potential exists for advanced technological solutions combined with AI and IoV-enabled capabilities. AI mechanisms applied in IoV environments can be exploited in smart cities to analyze drivers’ actions via data gathered and/or exchanged by enabled V2X vehicles’ Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and microcontrollers. AI will play a significant role in future IoV applications and infrastructures, by providing insights from collected data. This capability will enable the identification of patterns and will allow operational predictions with higher accuracy in small time periods. AI applications for smart vehicles will also enable businesses to develop new products, reduce possible risks and increase efficiency during the production time, by predicting failures that are usually non-detectable by humans.
The future of the implementation of AI-powered IoV infrastructures depends on the effective solutions to a number of technical challenges that such paradigms introduce. These challenges include intelligent sensor capabilities improvement and integration, smart Big Data analytics, automated remote data management, as well as open and secure composition of processes, which may be implemented into emerging AI-enabled IoV scenarios. Some initiatives try to incorporate Artificial Intelligence schemes in IoV environments, but new frameworks have to be defined. In fact, the approach of IoV is to find the potential benefits of AI, in order to build extensive ecosystems, for increasing the number of automated services and their value. This Book aims to gather recent research works in emerging Artificial Intelligence methods for processing and storing the data generated from cloud-based Internet of Vehicles infrastructures. In this context, the major subjects of the proposed book will cover the analysis and the development of AI-powered mechanisms in future IoV applications and architectures.
