Artificial Intelligence in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
Artificial intelligence systems are able to receive information from their environment and take decisions and actions to maximize their success at some goal. They mimic cognitive human functions on specific approaches with the aim of satisfying an objective. One of the most studied research fields in Vehicle technology is Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). There are many VANET areas where Artificial Intelligence can be applied. In this speech we will review some well-known artificial intelligence techniques applied to VANET research areas such as Packet Forwarding, routing, data fusion, handover, mobility, and packet fragmentation. They will be supported by some examples and real cases. Some comparisons will be shown in order to provide a big picture of the state-of-the-art in these research areas. Finally, existing research challenges will be discussed.
