Integrating Vehicular Technologies Within the IoT Environment: A Case of Egypt

  • Aya Sedky AdlyEmail author


The evolution of internet of things over the past few years has impacted on a new era of connected vehicles. Telecommunications, smartphones, and advancement of new technologies have given the ability for vehicles to easily access the internet and have communication capabilities in an internet of vehicles (IoV) scenario. Many factors are involved in the development, realization, and application of the IoV while, at the same time, establishing smart industrial environments. At present, deploying various kinds of infrastructures in smart cities is considered highly promising in order to improve road safety, reduce pollution, regulate traffic, and manage collaboration with other technological platforms. However, these platforms are useful to further support IoV services, including vehicular cloud platforms, data handling architectures, and network security, which are essential ambitions for developing countries. There are also numerous inherent challenges. Smart cities, which are complex integrated network systems, can use data captured by IoV objects and process it using artificial intelligence to provide intelligent transport system with intelligent components (such as intelligent traffic control, intelligent traffic lights, and intelligent objects) that are all connected together and also with people who use these vehicles. For a developing country such as Egypt, an efficient architecture that is compatible with the feasible technologies, user requirements, and market demands is currently considered mandatory for integrating internet of things with vehicular standards and technologies. This chapter addresses these concerns along with the emerging applications and challenges for the future.
