Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is a recent advancement to the popular Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) concept. IoV
distinguishes itself from VANETs in a way that objects of IoV are connected to each other directly or indirectly through
the Internet. This Internet connectivity provides flexibility of leveraging the services available in the cloud such as,
resource management, high performance computing, parallel processing, database management, and unlimited
storage in broader VANETs known as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). IoV is currently in its preliminary
stages of inception and poses several challenges for development and deployment authorities. Some of these
challenges include security, latency, protocol validation, complexity of routing algorithms, environmental issues,
scalability, adaptability and dynamicity. All time connected environment in IoVs enables its entities to socialize with
each other by sharing information of common interest such as, traffic situations, road conditions, nearby gas stations,
vacant car parking slots, alternate routes and toll gates etc. Socializing in IoV encompasses challenges like trust
management, privacy, dependability, contextuality, user expectation and reputation management etc. This special
issue aims at highlighting the key challenges involved in development and deployment of IoV systems keeping in mind
their socializing aspect along with their potential solutions and future trends. This special issue is expected to provide
a platform for academicians and industry researchers to identify and debate technical problems and future trends
associated with IoV.
