As one of the typical networking paradigms for Internet of Things, the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) enables seamless information dissemination and task processing among vehicles equipped with onboard sensing, communication, computing, and storage capabilities. With the development of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, it is envisioned to realize the ubiquitous intelligence for IoV. Different network entities including connected vehicles, wireless base stations, edge/cloud servers, aerial/space-assisted devices (e.g., drones, satellites), are expected to efficiently interact to perceive, reason, and make intelligent decisions based on context awareness for improving the networking and computing effectiveness. Highly responsive task computing, adaptive networking, and efficient resource control are imperative for the implementation of intelligent, safe, and ubiquitous IoV to satisfy increasingly differentiated vehicular application requirements.

To realize the ubiquitous intelligence for IoV, further research endeavors are needed especially when high network complexity and vehicle mobility are present. On one hand, it is of paramount importance to explore how efficient AI frameworks are developed. For instance, hierarchical learning architectures can be investigated to fit in different IoV scenarios for improving the overall networking, computing, and control performance. On the other hand, technical challenges need to be overcome to deal with highly dynamic and complex vehicular network environments. Therefore, a practical implementation of AI modules can be achieved through balancing learning performance and complexity.

The objective of organizing this Special Issue (SI) is to attract and disseminate novel research ideas, concepts, approaches, and findings from both academia and industry to tackle challenges in developing effective and practical solutions for ubiquitous intelligence for IoV. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Architectures, frameworks, and concepts for AI-enabled IoV
  • Intelligent networking and computing for autonomous driving
  • AI-enabled end-edge-cloud interplay for IoV
  • Intelligent communication, computing, and control for IoV
  • Edge intelligence for IoV
  • Vehicle-to-vehicle-assisted intelligent communication and computing
  • Intelligent space/air-assisted IoV
  • Distributed learning for IoV
  • Intelligent edge content caching for IoV
  • Intelligent multi-dimensional resource control for IoV
  • Intelligent security and privacy preservation for IoV
  • AI-based data analytics for IoV
  • Digital-twin-assisted intelligent IoV
  • Short-range wireless communication for IoV
  • Autonomous authentication and handover authentication in IoV
