As one of the most important enabling technologies in the envisioned intelligent transportation system (ITS), vehicular networks are designed to provide information exchange via vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.

Historical Background

With the explosive growth of information technology, vehicular networks contribute to a more efficient driving experience by acting as a promising medium to provide a number of innovation applications, such as traffic monitoring, driving assistance, and multimedia services (Belanović et al., 2010; Ren et al., 2015; Wu et al., 2018).

Vehicular networks employ two different transmission categories, i.e., vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications, which enable vehicles to communicate with a roadside unit (RSU), and vehicular-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, which enable vehicles to communicate with each other. In 1999, FCC allocated 75 MHz (from 5.850...
