Feature Topic

Call for Papers

Internet of vehicles has attracted much attention due to its network capability of storing, processing, and disseminating data generated from vehicles and infrastructure connected. Valuable information can be provided that facilitates various applications, including improved services and vehicle safety. Meanwhile, electric vehicles (EVs) are gradually replacing conventional vehicles, driven by the desire to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To embrace the convenience of connectivity and appreciate low-carbon environments, we need to expedite the process of transition from Internet of vehicles to Internet of Electric Vehicles (IoEV). However, the increased number of EVs can substantially impact the underlying power grids because of the power loads induced by stochastic charging events. IoEV, serving as dynamic loads and energy storage devices, and the grid must work together and support each other.

This Feature Topic (FT) aims to disseminate general ideas extracted from cutting-edge research results spanning multiple disciplines. Potential authors will be able to share various viewpoints and the newest findings from research and ongoing projects relevant to IoEV and smart grids. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Vehicles-to-grid communications
  • Dynamic spectrum access technologies for IoEV
  • Grid-based network and services for IoEV
  • IoEV for smart grid
  • Power scheduling for charging IoEV
  • Modeling and simulation for the interaction of grids and EVs
