The age of the connected vehicle is rapidly dawning. This will allow us to revolutionise both our transport and communication infrastructures. In terms of transport, connected vehicles will enable an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) to be built which will lead to better traffic and road management, shorter journey times, less accidents, better collision avoidance mechanisms and increased efficiency in the management of transport disasters.

In terms of communication, this means that the mobile phone will no longer be the only major communication device for the user, as the connected vehicle will also be viewed as a first class communication object. Hence, applications will be able to migrate between the phone and the vehicle as people move around. In order to understand this coming age, it is necessary to build new technologies, testbeds and applications that will give us insight into this brave new world. Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANETs) or ITS-G5 provide low-latency and high bandwidth enabling life-critical safety and infotainment applications to be developed. There is also a need to integrate VANET/ITS-G5 technology with emerging standards such as 5G. [...]
