Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are no longer a concept from science fiction; rather, they are imminent, if not already integrated, in our everyday life. As enabling technology for most traffic-related issues ranging from in-vehicle entertainment to safety-critical applications, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications are considered to be one of the core technologies enabling ITS. Meanwhile, due to the dynamic nature of a V2X environment, mainly attributed to the mobility of vehicles, the development of V2X communications has raised a plethora of interesting research questions. As an effort to expedite the public’s understanding of the V2X communications, we are delighted to announce this Special Issue, where we look forward to receiving interesting ideas from you.

We welcome the submission of any unpublished original research related to the theme of “Vehicular Networks and Communications”. The articles are encouraged to discuss the following topics but are not limited to:

  • V2X Communications, V2V, V2R, V2P, V2I, V2S;      
  • Radar, LIDAR, SONAR;        
  • Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality;       
  • Routing, Data Dissemination, Data Aggregation, Path Section, Optimization; 
  • Medium Access Protocols, Congestion Control, Prioritization Techniques;    
  • Green Computing, Energy Consumption, Energy Harvesting, Lifetime Maximization;
  • Secure Communications, Security Optimization, Distributed Security;        
  • Privacy Preservation, Privacy Loss;
  • Video Transmission, Video Encoding/Decoding, Video Compression;
  • Edge Computing, Fog Computing, Cloud Computing, Distributed Computing;·
  • Localization, Geographic, GPS outage, GPS free, GPS-assisted;
  • Propagation Modelling, Interference, Path Loss Modelling.

In this paper, we present interference rejection combining scheme for interference suppression in wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE) system. WAVE system performances depend on interference traffic since various signals and noises are present due to various vehicles on the road. The IRC scheme can minimize the interference presence from the received signal within the massive interference condition, resulting in the substantial gain of signal-to-interference and noise ratios (SINR) and performance. Based on the experiment of our proposed scheme, given the vehicle speed, SINR and different channel condition, our proposed scheme for interference suppression achieved significant improvements by 2 dB SINR performance gain in the low speed condition and above 0.5 dB performance gain at the high speed case. To extend our scheme for the comprehensive analysis, we also produced the vehicle speed and SINR performance map, which showed the performance pattern over vehicle speed and SINR of our scheme.
