Call For Papers

The 2nd International Workshop on Smart Technologies for Intelligent Transportation and Communications (SmartITC 2021) from 18-20 August 2021 in Shenyang China

In Conjunction with the 20th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (TrustCom 2021),18-20 August 2021, Shenyang, China

Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) are one of the key enablers in the smart community. Therefore, much research has been directed towards VANETs from both industry and academia. The world’s largest automobile companies are continuously striving to introduce intelligence in automobiles through the convergence of cutting-edge sensing, communication, and control technologies. VANETs will allow safe and efficient road overtaking and merging. Future road manoeuvring such as overtaking and merging will be done cooperatively. When vehicles are planning any manoeuvres that may introduce safety issues, they will communicate and coordinate with the relevant vehicles. Vehicular communications and smart technologies for transportation is a growing area of communications and collaboration between vehicles and including roadside communication infrastructure. Advances in wireless communications are making possible sharing of information through real time communications between vehicles and infrastructure. This has led to applications to increase safety of vehicles and communication between passengers and the Internet. Standardization efforts on vehicular communication are also underway to make vehicular transportation safer, greener and easier. The use of electronic technology for the control of ground transportation systems including, but not limited to, traffic aid systems; traffic control systems; automatic vehicle identification, location, and monitoring systems; automated transport systems, with single and multiple vehicle control; and moving walkways or people-movers. The use of electronic or electrical components and systems for control, propulsion, or auxiliary functions, including but not limited to, electronic controls for engineer, drive train, convenience, safety, and other vehicle systems; sensors, actuators, and microprocessors for on-board use; electronic fuel control systems; vehicle electrical components and systems collision avoidance systems; electromagnetic compatibility in the vehicle environment; and electric vehicles and controls. The main objective of all these research and development efforts is to realize a safe, economical, environment-friendly, and reliable transportation system.
